It is included in ArchiCAD 8.0/8.1 and I give a reference to it on the tutorial site. It's not mine, but it is accessible for every ArchiCAD 8 user and is a bit bigger then the projects I use to do, so might reflect real office situation better.

Come on, it's not so bad.

You wouldn't want to see a Skyscraper or dull office building tutorial, do you?

Can you rephrase your question?

You mean billboards: in Cinema4D they can be made by creating a plane, making a material using alpha-mapped pictures.

Addition: I also applied the same picture into the Color channel and disabled the Specular channel.

You might assign it into the Luminance channel to prevent the material being influenced by lighting if you want.

Ok, i will try to explain in tihs way


I created a wall i ac and that wall is wood from all sides. Then i export it to 3ds and open it in c4d. That wall is recognize as wood and thats ok. Now i want to set inner side of wall to be brick, outher side to be green. How will i do that.

In artlantis that task will be accomplish very easy, i will go to "windows" then to "reapply materials" and there i have options:planes, paralel planes, object, materials

Try to set up materials in AC for "inwall" & "outwall" - keep the material name 8 characters or less. Apply them to the walls in AC as inside material and outside material. Export using materials as option and see if you can see them separately in C4D.

It works, and now i can do the magic!

Next question is about sun, I put the sun object and i cant find anywhere citys, north ? i m only able to move sun with "sun expressions" after i press 10000 icons and hit my mouse hard i was able to move it with move command. So how i can move sun without hiting my keyboard and mouse

What is shotcut for zoom all ?

Where i can turn off autolight option. I was looking in general options but i didt find it?

This is for now, I ll be back !

Autolight is only on if there are no other lights in the scene... once another light is added, the autolight goes off. Personally I have never liked the built in sun. I will just create a light and set the type to either Distant or Parrallel. I can then position the light to where it should be. Give the light a slight bit of color and a hard shadow with about 75% opacity in the shadow setting. Then I just fill in with a light dome to simulate some Global Illumination.

I am hoping to get the light dome tutorial up by the end of this week
