    Hi Knut

    Great plugin, i use it some days now. Concerning “Camera Icon”. I would like to reduce the icon size below 1. Today its not possible. Any change to implement that ?
    Best , Thomas

      Hi Thomas,

      if you want to change the limit, select the cvp_Camera_Icon, go to “Manage User Data” (Attribute Manager – User Data) and uncheck the “Limit Min” and “Limit Max” option box.

      Now you can type in values below “1″.

      Nevertheless i wouldn’t recommend to work in too small scene scales. The only reason to built the camera icon was the fact, that the render time increases when using C4D’ s subsurface shattering with very small values. In other words, you have to use a larger scene scale to get the same render results in less time.

    Hi Knut

    Any news about the R14 version ?


    • Knut Schroeder on November 18, 2012 at 1:19 pm

      Hi Thomas,

      as mentioned in the “Notes”-Box (above), the version 1.02 added the R14-combatibility.

      CamViewPack now contains a version for R13 and a version for R14.

      Best, Thomas :)

    does this script work in c4d 14?

    • Knut Schroeder on October 30, 2012 at 11:15 am

      Due to some viewport changes in R14 the cvp_CamViewSets 1.01 do not include the new settings of R14. All the other cvp scripts work in R14.

      A R14-compatible version of cvp_CamViewSets will be available in a few days.

    Hallo Knut,

    leider funktioniert bei mir das Script CameraViewSets nicht richtig. Ich besitze die Version R13.058. Das Script erstellt nur einen Python Tag im Nullobjekt. Für die ausgewählten Objekt wird kein Tag erstellt. Das Python Tag für das Nullobjekt funktioniert ebenfalls nicht. Wo liegt der Fehler?
    Vielen Dank im Voraus
    Gruß Marcel Hohenstein

      Hallo Marcel,

      könntest du bitte eine kurze Schritt-für-Schritt-Beschreibung für den Fehler angeben?

      Zum Beispiel:
      - Leere Szene
      - 1Fenster-Ansicht
      - Kamera erstellen
      - Würfel erstellen
      - Kamera selektieren
      - Skript ausführen

      Viele Grüße

      Problem gelöst. Es waren die Pref Files der C4d Installation, wie so oft. Also kein Bug des Plugins. Das Tool funktioniert einwandfrei.

      Viel Spaß damit.
      Gruß Marcel
