Update: HNDisabler+

HNDisabler+ is a free Cinema 4D plugin (R13 and +) which allows you to enable, disable and change the visibility of one or multiple objects just by one click.

All objects are grouped by type, so, you can for instance disable all Hypernurbs or Bool objects at the same time, which is useful especially when you work on very heavy scenes.

Minesweeper Test in Cinema 4D

how to create multidimensional array in python ?
that's what I was looking for :)

in java it's quite easy, for instance, to create Integer array ;
int[][] arrayName = { {0,1,2} , {0,1,2} };  
and to do the same thing in python,
arrayName = map(range,[3] * 2)
print arrayName
# [ [0,1,2], [0,1,2] ] 

to test this, I made a basic version of the Minesweeper game in c4d since we can use 2D array to define the grid. 

here's an example :

done just for fun :)

RandomColor Script

I did a quick script to assign a random color to the objects present in the scene. I also added some functions to make it more 'convenient'. now, you can change the color of one/multiple objects, or inversely, disable single/all colors.

 here you can find source of the main Script RandomColor_All :

zManipulator v1.0b


long time since my last post
well, let's start by new plugin, zManipulator
3 in 1:  you can Move, Rotate & Scale your object with the same tool.
you can also, move the object axis to a vertex, by holding Ctrl  and Left Mouse click.
to center the axis again, just hold Ctrl, and click in an empty space.
it's a beta version, and contains some bugs.
of course, i'm still working on it ^^

flipPoZ v1.0b


new post, new plugin...
when i did the walk cycle animation, i spent lot of time doing copy and past to get the mirrored poses... what to do in this case ? well, i really don't know how the confirmed animators do ,  so, i did this plugin to flip any pose by one click.
you can use it only with the Character tool (r13)
i tested it on some characters, it seems working, but i'm still working on it.

with flipPoz you can :
- flip the current pose
- copy the current pose to the other side
- select the opposite controller

hope you'll find it useful!

Twil - Free Rigged Character


Twil : is an old character that i did few months ago. ...i tried to rig it using the new Character tool in R13, to do some animation tests. of course, you can download it for your own use.
i did also a quick walk cycle animation ... i'm not an animator at all, so i think it needs more tweaking :)

Tutorial : Wheel animation, Part II

Hey everyone!

First off, I want to apologize for not uploading the second part of this tutorial earlier.
in this part, i'll show you how to generate particles using our wheel and Thinking Particles.
the idea : The faster the speed, the more particles are emitted and projected back.
you can use any type of generator; it works fine. just play around with values to get more realistic result.
if you have any questions, don't be shy ^^
