    Animation tuts

    Yes. Thanks. I have done animations in C4D, so I don't think I will have much trouble.

    Animation tuts

    I find myself needing to make a few simple animations. Are there any basic tuts on this? I saw the tips 90 & 76

    Animation tuts

    Thanks. Will be doing both.
  4. I also have the Logitech M510. Been using it for a few years now. Works well with FZ and C4D

    formZ stops Undo

    +1 for the undo bug-a-boo. Happens every once in a while. I don't see any particular pattern to the behavior. Restarting the app solves it for me. Overall 8.5 is much more stable for me than previous versions.

    edit a bezier spline

    This might seem like a simple question, but I can't seem to find the answer in the manual. If I draw a bezier spline, I am presented with a set of control points. But if I click off the object the points disappear, and I can't seem to find out how to get them back.

    edit a bezier spline

    I was not searching for "controls". I used "edit shape" and "edite spline" "edit path" as that is what I was trying to do. All things appear simple after you know the answer.

    edit a bezier spline

    Thank you. As I said I couldn't find it in the manual. I usually draw my shapes in Illustator.

    Sub D shape and map

    See attached: 1. We have a simple subdivided cube with a color applied to the 4 poly faces 2. If you invoke the “grow face” command on one of the faces, all of the colors disappear. 3. Even if you apply “grow face” to a face without color (such as one of the sides), the ones with color will still disappear. 4. In fact, if you apply any sub d command (here offset edges) the colors disappear. Is this expected behavior?

    Insert sequence

    What I was referring to is a way to numerically insert a sequence or "cut". In C4D, there is a way to shift click in a given area, then you can type in a distance before committing to the action. Unless I am missing something "offset segment" won't work on a sub-d object without "swapping". Even then would you not have to do it 4 times for each of the faces?

    Insert sequence

    Is there a way to accurately insert a sequence, other than just where you click? It doesn't seem very exacting.

    Sub D shape and map

    Neura, I am not talking about any drastic change to the geometry. Upon further investigation, I have found that even moving a single control point results is loss of all maps. I never experienced this in any of the other polygon modeling programs I have used. So what this means, is if I have a completed and mapped model, and to need so make even a small adjustment, I will have to re-map the entire model? Wow.

    Sub D shape and map

    Hello? Still waiting on some clarification.

    Texture map entire object at once

    Is this what you are trying to do? Here is a 10" cube with mapping set to "cubic" and "best match per face"

    how to draw carpet

    If you don't have acces to the proper software, then your best bet would be to do a hi res rendering of the room without the bed, and a proxy for the carpet. Then a rendering of the bed by itself. Make a layered file of the 2 images, and photoshop in the carpet. Wouldn't be all that difficult.

    8.5 View menu

    There were tons more crash logs I didn't bother to send because they didn't seem to be of any real benefit to either of us. Like I said, the problem comes and goes. I can create a file, follow the exact same process, it can be just fine or not. It can just crash doing something as simple as moving a control point, or it will let me do a reasonably complex model with no issues. So if no one else is experiencing this behaviour, then it must be my computer. As I have alreasdy stated, I don't have issues with any software on my machine except FZ. Nothing more I can say.

    8.5 View menu

    I just downloaded the 8.5 beta and noticed the "view" menu seems to be missing a few things. See screenshot. Have these been moved somewhere else?

    8.5 View menu

    I am not talking about the bridge tool issue. I am talking about crashes when using the modeling tools. I have sent you numerous crash reports, and exchanged emails with Paul. The only suggestions I got were the standard "reset the preferences". Which I tried (on more than 1 ocassion). This did not solve the problem. As I said, I thought that the OS update had cured it, but that was not the case. I just reset the 8.5 prefs and it did fix the "view menu" issue I started this thread with. So at least that is something positive.

    I will try your suggestions later today when I get time. BTW: The subd tool crashes as back. Apparently my celebration was short lived. When I first updated to Yosemite a couple days ago it seemed much more stable, and I was cautiously optimistic. However yesterday, after installing 8.5, the issues returned. This is beyond frustrating. I am really trying to give this program a fair shake. There ARE things I do like about it. To be completey honest, I have had more issues with FZ during the past couple of years than I have with any of the other softwares I use on a day to day basis. That is not a knock on FZ. It is just a fact.
  20. I agree with many of the points above. Especially the "floating pallets" point. I find that bothersome to no end.

    bridge tool crash

    I was playing around with the subd tools on a simple structure. When I try to bridge the 2 selected faces, it causes an immediate crash. Any idea why? I have already tried resetting the prefs. Didn't make any difference.

    bridge tool crash

    just emailed you the file. I am sure it will work ok for you. As I mentioned several times before, the subd tools are unstable on my machine. I have no idea why. Plenty of RAM. Good video card.

    Augment app

    Thanks for responding. I will have to check on that. Like I said they specifically mentioned collada .dae. I will try the obj format and let you know. It is a pretty slick little app if you haven't checked it out
