Realistic bee and frog model, both rigged and enhanced by a set of XPresso controls.
Your bee model is fantastic. Really gives me a buzz 9soor for the bad pun).
I don’t understand wxactly how the frequency parameter for the Wings works. If I set it to 180 the wings stop? I would have guessed the higher the value the faster the wings move. I can’t find a manual – can you tell me how this parameter works?
Will you produce any more of these rigs — they are great.
Thank you for the great words.
Keep in mind that at 180 beats per second (or another high value) you can’t see all the movements in 1 second because probably you have only 25-30 fps.
If you set 30 fps you find that 180/30=6 that it is an integer value, so you’ll see
always the same frame in the animation. Indeed set the frequency at that value
could be an optimum choose if you need and you can set a thousand (or hundred)
of frame per seconds.
For now I don’t have a plan for other rigs.
I’m just about to purchase this Bee C4D model from your site. Just a question – does the bee has a low poly count as the details that I see here is pretty high, which means rendering is going to take a lot of coffee breaks for me. Look forward in hearing from you.
thanks for your interest.
The poly count is not too high (662 without hyperNURBS).
The time consuming factor is given much more by the fur, so depends by you.
i like to buy this.
Can i run this model in R15??
If i can run it, get this right now
sorry for bad english
Don’t worry it is a perfect english for ME! :)
I can’t say if it works perfectly in R15. Try to contact me privatly. ;)
I just purchased your excellent Bee and Frog models and am new to C4D. Do you have a project file that you could send that contains the lighting and settings for the renderings you have on your product page? I have R13 Studio and cannot get an image anywhere close to yours. I do not see any hairs, for example, and would like to know how to obtain the results you did with your models.
Thanks very much for your help.
Thanks Jim and excuse me for answering so late.
If you don’t see the hair, probably you do not have selected the ON button in the Fur section of the preset.
My setup for the product images is very simple.
I used global illumination with an HDR image to a Sky Object (the Receive GI is ON for the hair material) and a spot light without shadows and GI off (approximately in front of the bee model).
Hello! Bee model – can be hair simulated by wind?
Sure, the hair can be simulated by wind.
You need only to add the force in the Forces Tab and play with the dynamics properties for your goal.
Well done! One question. Could I replace the Bee with another Character for example a butterfly or fly? That would be nice! Thanks.
my knowledge lead me to say that you could but it is not so straightforward. You should redo all the bind and not only that.
And just an observation: the flight of the butterfly is so different, I don’t think is the right way, in my humble opinion.
I just purchased the Bee & Frog. Is there a Vray version by chance?
No, there isn’t.
Hi, sorry I’m a bit new to C4d, I just bought the bee&frog and I can’t seem to get a render that looks like yours. These modules that you list : Dynamics, Hair, MOCCA they are integrated with c4d already right? These arent 3rd party plugins? My render dosnt show the hair and is rough angled. I’m using r13. I was wondering if you could give me a few quick pointers on what I’m doing wrong. Thanks!
sorry I meant it dosnt show the hair properly.. not as smooth as yours.
and not talking about the anti-aliasing either :) I think its something to do with the number of polygons..
if you can see the hair then you have the hair module. In the case of a module is missing, a pop-up alert will appears on your monitor.
You can send me an email if you go to my blog (press contact tab), so we can manage this problem and understand what’s is wrong. Only one thing I can add: the light setup for the hair is no so simple like for the other material.
sorry, I found it in the user data
I just bought this product
have a question
why I don’t see the hair on the bee
I have the studio c4d bundle
You rock! men, how about a rigged Spider—that would be fantastic!
Very interested in what you are offering. Any chance I can get you to add a butterfly?…
If you’ll work on it, you’ll know.
But if you want, you can make a product request.
sorry… if I will work on it…
Hi! there, I love your work, it would be nice if you a pre rigged Butterfly, that would be awesome! Cheers!
