Cinema 4D S22 - What is in this Surprise New Version?
Show Notes: * Maxon Cinema 4D S22 * Arnold and Otoy collaboration * Arnold GPU on their RNDR service * Otoy to support Arnold's standard surface Our Thoughts on the New C4D S22 Features: Automatic UV's Chad * super easy to use, very convenient * not bad but no real control over distortion settings * I like the overlap mirrored geo, nice way to save space * cant reset to default settings Shawn * 3 Impressive out of the box automatic solutions licenced from Quel Solaar. * Easy to use! New UV Workflow Chad * Great start, way better layout * good enough for most * slightly confusing workflow * couple of quirks * decent auto packing and auto unwrap * needs a relax brush * no UDIM support * overlap mirrored geo is nice * no ability to right click and reset your settings to default * tad slow on complex meshes Shawn * Wonderful new UV layout * Love all of the view modes (Show tiled texture) for example * Would love to see a nice grid in UI beyond 0-1 UV space. * Need Alignment tools (Snapping does not seem to work) Modeling Improvements Chad * Steps in the right direction, but a long ways to go to compare to Maya + Max * bridge is ok, but still far behind what other DCCs are doing * untriangulate works well Shawn * Love the new mirror selection! Huge * Vertex normal via the phong tag is great * Untriangulate Command is much improved * Close Polygon Hole function is much better * Fix non-manifold geometries command very welcome Nodal Material Export to FBX Chad * not really anything here that interests me Shawn * Seems great for those who still use Physical and Standard Renderers GoZ Bridge Chad * I don't use Zbrush but this seems useful Shawn * Works great! Was not possible in R21 officially and now supports Polygroups! Viewport Enhancements Chad * viewport enhancements is a step in the right direction but doesn't work with redshift. Was hoping it would be closer to what Maya and Blender have. * viewport filters are a great quality of life feature. BUT the individual presets are not found in the customize commands options and cannot be turned into a button or shortcut. However, the preset selector can be docked in the UI, but this is not ideal. * would be easy to set up for play blasts Shawn * Viewport filter icons rule * Setting up Viewport filter shortcuts DON'T work as expected * Love the new viewport resolution option * Instances now show full geometry * Hair now looks amazing and much closer to final render gLTF Support (Export Only) Chad * I don't do AR, but this seems very useful to those that do Shawn * Another great exchange format. * Great for WebGL needs * Is a one-size fits all file format (SketchFab)
