Hi your tutorial is great. I have been using your technique since last year. But this time my 3d model isn’t as bright as yours. I tried using a light. Too bright. lowered its colour brightness to -200, not much difference

The lack of specular highlights makes the render look really weird. I’m not sure why you would turn that off.

Milan Meiland says:

Thank you for this easy and simple tutorial with a really nice end product.
Some settings were different for me since I use R17 but some scrolling through the comments helped me immediately.

Started a few years ago with Cinema 4D but stopped after switching computers and didn’t had the program on my new one.
Really happy that I found the program again, definitely going to to this in my free time as a hobby.

again, thank you and peace from The Netherlands 🙂

Monnq says:

Doesn’t work for me, I can’t see the lights on my spheres, I followed your tutorial step by step, enabled Ambient occlusion and Global Illumination, nothing works.

jjderosa says:

Is there a way to hide the lit up shapes from rendering but still have them emit their light?
