Turning on the “Enable Quantizing” button found in the “Enable Snap” will move your selected object/poly/edge/whatever by a set amount in steps. No longer do I have to drag and hope it will move up by 30cms I can now get the selected edge to move up in steps of 10cms.

PLEASE READ BEFORE WATCHING: Firstly I want to say sorry again for the poor quality. I recorded this tutorial at a high resolution but compressing it in Adobe Media Encoder produced a pretty poor result. If I get alot of comments saying it’s too hard to see what it is going on I will re-record and upload it in separate parts. The first time this tutorial was recorded it came in at 3 hours so I had to record it again trying to be a bit less aimless. The second time I recorded it I forgot some important pieces so towards the hour mark I will say “thanks for watching” just hold on cos there is another 30 mins or so of information coming.

Next, here is the link to Dropbox dropbox.com/s/k4cg1dvx8uia8cj/BodyPaint%20Vimeo.rar which will have the Pauly_BP UV layout. Put both files into your Layout Folder. There is also a C4D file with the sugar bowl as a low poly object and a “level one” object. Watch the video to see what I mean. Then try adding the tile map and turn the Subdivision Surface/HyperNURBS on and off to see the distortion.

Finally here are some important links.

This started out as a doodle while installing a PC game two weeks ago. I decided to try model and texture them and was pretty pleased with the result so I created a few more objects and tied them together into this project. I used CINEMA 4D, BodyPaint, Corel Painter, Photoshop, VrayforC4D and After Effects.
