cinema 4d tutorial. need some guidance

Postby tony on 05/21/2010, 2:10 am

Im doing Greyscale gorillas tutorial and Im getting these lines on my render. After a bit of digging I noticed that the cubes are not flush completely. Even if I set the rotation to 90 or 180 degrees the cubes are still off. setting the rotation to 91 or 181 it alleviates the problem very little but I still get the lines. Anybody know whats going on?

Make sure the white is actual white and black is actual black in the shader texture?

It's a bit difficult to tell just from this screenshot....throw up a project file maybe. Then at least we can dig around and try to find the problem.

Good call, here is the file, probably some obvious mistake; but I just like knowing how to trouble shoot this stuff. I know it has something to do with the rotation, something is preventing the cubes from becoming flush with each other. Im working on cinema 4D R11

Hi, change the contrast of the Noise that's applied to the Shader effector from -2 to 0. If you check the top view you'll see they are a little bit off (not 180° rotated, maybe some 181° or so...) when the contrast is set to -2.
Anyways, contrast of 0 rotates the cubes to the desired position where they stick together completely.

huh... thats strange because they all seem to be equally of by a bit, with noise I would expect some randomness at least; however, I did play with the contrast, so it was my mistake for not sticking to the tutorial. Thank you for clearing that up Atlas64! :mrgreen:

Hey Tony, I have been working with this effect in many different ways now and from that screenshot I can tell that your glass is too far away from the object you want to reflect, move the glass closer and you win!
that kind of looks similar to what I'm working on right now actually lol :D
