Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]

Good day everyone, I just posted a new video on my YouTube page featuring some of VCP's best plug ins and I used the Pro Shaders in Element and in Cinema along side the GSG CityKit, and an Optical Flare for good measure. Oh and hey VCP Peeps, we are all waiting patiently for the Building Pack for Element, credit cards out, thought maybe for xmas, buy no :(

Enjoy the video below:

Hey Guys, hope I am not causing any trouble with this, but just wanted to give something for this incredibly great community to make christmas (and E3d) even better! ) Allow me to present you the Element 3d Christmas Pack! ((Unofficial).. Including 12 modells (max,obj), completed with the e3d files, so you just have to drop the Christmas Pack into My modells and that’s it! ) It’s free of course, made by me, for every Element 3d lover, just like myself!
Have fun and wish you all merry christmas! ) D

The pack can be downloaded from here

Hello VCP

I sincerely hope as your company grows, and as time and resources permit, that you will extend your product development to include easy Maya and Mudbox workflows. As you are doing with C4D.

Wow. I can't tell you how many times I have wished that some of of those shaders were available to me while working in C4d. Now they will be.

On top of that, you didn't really have to offer it as a free upgrade.

You are one cool dude.

Fantastic news.

This will also make it a million times easier for VCP, and anyone with Cinema 4D to make models packs - which I'm pretty much guessing is the whole point - but now we get the benefits also, at no extra cost.

    If you're talking about the basics, they don't get much better than this one (there are seven parts in total)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5fLXW-oC_o

    In the past, VCP have done a bit of 3DS Max (epic shatter, medical zoom, 3D ledge etc), but considering the price of those softwares - those tutorials would be kind of exclusive...

    And just imagine the render times..

    PS - read some background info on the TWILIGHT movies - di you know that it takes literally HUNDREDS of hours to render the wolves? As in hit the render button on Monday, then come back the following Saturday to see how it turned out..

I'm pretty sure this is a stupid question but here it goes: I have pro shaders but use 3ds max. This is only an upgrade if you are using C4d correct?
    Djghost1133
    2 years ago
    You don't really need pro shaders for max as long as you have bought any render engine such as vray or final render. Even with mental ray you can re-create most of these with ease.

Is this a new file that needs to be downloaded, because I'm not seeing any place to 'upgrade' my file.

    After searching online I found information as to where the maps are placed after the install (Documents/VideoCopilot) so I can now pull them into Maya as texture maps as well.
