don’t forget about exclusion/project- C4D quick tip

Many times you may want something to show in the reflections but then other things to not show. Using a compositing tag can allow you to “exclude” things in reflections, also similarly you may want lights to light some things but not others, in this case you can exclude the items in the projects tab of the light properties. In this sample scene I was playing with HDRI maps and wanted the Sky object to show in the reflections of the spheres, but not the background/floor, my floor was slightly reflective and the HDRI image looked like crap on the background/flood, adding the background/floor object to the exclusion area of the sky compositing tag made it so the sky showed up where I wanted it but not on the background/floor.

Doing Dailies

Ok, so are you doing an everyday render? I started doing them in January of 2014 and January went pretty smooth. I was not working at the time and was able to spend plenty of time on them. Late January I started working and now I am having trouble balancing work, kids, and dailies. My biggest challenge I think is being creative. When I started my plan was to try new things. This is all good if you have the time to research and play to get something that looks decent, but with less time I am finding it harder and harder to stay creative and try new things.

So with all that said, HATS OFF to anyone that has done an everyday for a year or more and still puts out sexy renders.

If you are doing dailies please consider commenting on the following questions below.

1) are you using primarily one software?

2) how much time do you spend doing yours?

3) do you find it difficult to come up with a concept/idea?

4)have you missed a day?

WIP- work in progress

I have been having a lot of fun with this project. except at render times ­čśë this was modeled, lit, and animated by┬áme in┬áC4D. The Jumbotron was a freebie from EyeDesign http://eyedesyn.com/2012/01/27/free-c4d-model-jumbotron/┬áThe lighting was the most challenging and I still feel like it needs some work in post. I used Maxons CVartSmart (Link http://www.cineversity.com/vidplaylist/cv-artsmart/) for the basketball team logos. The whole project was inspired by Brian McCauley’s NAB 2013 presentation, which can be found here, https://www.cineversity.com/vidplaytut/nab_2013_brian_mccauley
