Can anyone tell me the proper way to import a Adobe Dimension obj model with color (materials) and textures into Cinema 4d r21 and have it render out of C4D using the Dimension assigned materials. I can create a material in C4D, apply to my Dimension obj import, it appears in the editor window and renders perfectly. Many thanks
BTW the purpose bring the Dimension obj into C4D is to create animation that orbits around the Dimension OBJ...thanks
Try to generate UV maps for created model in Dimension. Maybe that can help.
Thanks for the suggestion...care to share how to generate the UV maps for model created in Dimension?
Here is capture for model that has been imported in Dn..Generate UV in Object menu.
Thanks for showing me the UV Generate...have you tried to import this into Cinema 4D?
There is no proper way because Dimension is not designed to export into out dated software
Why doesn't it work = because the file Dimension exports is a non standard Obj, basically the export will have a small text file that explains how the use the extra materials like Substants files and your C4 software just ignore it
The best workaround imo is to custom build the materials after import of the Obj or even better would be to use up to date animation software like Blender or Iclone
