    flat Xptrails

    Interesting idea of xptrail inside a sweep. i may play with that later I did want flat-ish ribbon type objects, which of course you can do with sweep.

    flat Xptrails

    how do i create flat xp trails in cycles4d ? or any other shapes for that matter, or is it limited to circles ?

    Cyptomatte and x-particles

    selecting assets only causes the particles per system to become one layer instead of many...

    Cyptomatte and x-particles

    Whats the best way to render x-particles passes? With cryptomatte i ended up with 20k layers which is unusable. Obviously i'm referring to rendering in cycles 4d

    Hardware requirements

    @lothar and @andygp4711 what version of windows are you using (if windows 10 which version). Some problems with the 2990wx is due to the "weird" memory controller issue. windows 10 v1903 is supposed(i'm getting weird freezing issues) to fix some of the crappyness that the windows schedular has. Zen 2 has removed most of the issues with 16 cores and above.

    White Specks on Render SOLVED

    The white specs on the meshed object are specular highlights (unless i'm missing something)

    Why Won't This Render? SOLVED

    Teknow is using r19. Whilst his scene works in r20, without caching the scene, it is not true in r19. When you don't cache you get no crown effect. The above by Martin explains why you do need to cache dynamics for final renders. So the altered work flow for final renders with dynamics is to cache dynamics - it also reduces render times as well. Below is rendered on R19 (i changed the hdri between the two renders) non cached Cached

    So it renders in the real time preview for you and not in the picture viewer?

    same here Lothar, its rendering once i've removed the the sun node - also agree with the hair and the other non cycles needed options. And saves as a tiff that teknow and the same settings. Teknow can you try again but without the sun settings disabled? Crown Splash.tif

    Render Glass with Alpha for Compositing SOLVED

    I would (and i am probably going to ) for cycles renders set that as a default. As without that set, the preview and final renders are actually different. As for n00b moments, we all have them.

    Render Glass with Alpha for Compositing SOLVED

    Because i cant edit my post. You need to up both the ray bounces and transparency depth, with glass you should always use hdr. I've included below a sample scene. If you save it out as a psd it will also have the alpha set for AE glass for forums.c4d

    Increase the ray bounces..
