i’m not convinced yet , the meshes looks jaggy and not clean , if only something box cutter and hard ops from blender were in c4d. it would be awesome .

Shi Phm says:

Long time no see EJ, nice video as always 🙂

Mustang says:

Great video. Luv it!

neoqueto says:

What do you mean you wouldn’t know how to make a wedge of cheese like that traditionally? Booles are a thing. However I do agree that they’re terrible in cases like that, especially with bevels. I’ve done similar things like that with metaballs (and cloners) previously and it’s just a pain, nothing beyond a proof of concept.

Encore 4K says:

11:00 what if I want sharp clean edges?

Mike Ben says:

Hm, thats really a good step forward. But how dense is the mesh from the pillar example? I think really dense. And how will you unwrap such a pillar for texturing, or only use as higpoly for normalmap baking on a lowlpoly model?

Manoj Routh says:

hi, how did u get R20, how can I get R20, try version…
plz. tell me


Nice video. Very intuitive workflow. Is the resulting mesh easy to UV map and apply selection tags to after baking? Just curious 🙂

andrearusky says:

cool.. thanks.. the cheese looks cool, but the raspberry is so so, it’s too smooth, it doesn’t look realistic

Martin Diavolo says:

Nice! I would love to see more of this technique, plus I love the cracks effects.

Chosen Idea says:

3:54 “We don’t want to cut the cheese”. Oh, no we don’t. Brilliant video as always EJ.
