Greyscalegorilla Plugins for Cinema 4D (P3): Creation

Greyscalegorilla is a team that has 10 years experience in making training and tools to help motion designers and 3D artists. Greyscalegorilla plugins and tools are developed as must-use workflow solutions, used daily in real studio environments, on feature film titles, commercial animations, broadcast graphics, and experiential displays, for popular 3D programs like Cinema 4D, Redshift, X-Particles, and much more.

In this week’s article, let’s find out about Greyscalegorilla’s Creation plugins for Cinema 4D.

1. SOCIAL FRAME

Social frame is a plugin created to help you visualize and adjust your framing for various aspect ratios for a single render. All will be done inside your C4D viewport. With the visual guides in Social Frame, render one image that you can crop for all your Social Media needs. With less time spent rendering and more time spent posting, you will help your client please the algorithm gods.

Key Features

VISUALIZATION FEATURES

Use masks to get a better sense of how various crops will look on your main image. Activate square mode to visualize multiple variations of crops in both horizontal and vertical aspect ratios on a single square image. Render out one iteration and crop it in post any which way you like.

OUTPUT TO TAKES

Do you want to just render multiple cropped images out of C4D directly? Easily create takes based on whatever aspect ratios you select. Use C4D tokens to label your renders by take, and render out everything at once.

AUTO-ADJUSTS FOV

Tired of losing your perfect framing when you change aspect ratio? Social Frame automatically adjusts your camera’s field of view (FOV) when you change aspect ratio. You will no more spend time getting your framing back to perfection.

Best Cloud Rendering Service For Cinema 4D and Greyscalegorilla’s Creation plugins

iRender is a GPU-Acceleration Cloud Rendering Service for Multi-GPU Rendering with Powerful Render Nodes: 2/4/6/8x RTX 3090/3080/2080Ti, provides high computing performance on the model of IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service). Cinema 4D users can easily choose their machine configuration from recommended system requirements to high-end options, which suit all your project demands and will speed up your rendering process many times.

High-end hardware configuration

  • Single and Multi-GPU servers: 1/2/4/6/8x RTX 3090/3080/2080Ti. Especially, NVIDIA RTX 3090 – the most powerful graphic card.
  • 24 GB vRAM capacity, fitting to the heaviest images and scenes. NVLink/SLI requested for bigger vRAM.
  • RAM capacity of 128/256 GB.
  • Storage (NVMe SSD): 512GB/1TB/2TB.
  • Intel Xeon W-2245 or AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX CPU with a high clock speed of 3.90GHz.

Let’s see rendering tests with Cinema 4D and Octane, Redshift on servers 6x RTX 3090 at iRender:

Reasonable price

iRender provides high-end configuration at a reasonable price. You can see that iRender’s package always costs much cheaper than packages of other render farms (in performance/price ratio). Moreover, iRender’s clients will enjoy many attractive promotions and discounts.

And much more utilities

To reduce the rendering time more, users can run multiple machines at the same time. You can use the machines separately or connect them by using Thinkbox Deadline. iRender provides Redshift licenseThinkbox Deadline license for Prime customers. Users, who recharge enough points to become Prime customers, will not only be able to use Redshift/Thinkbox Deadline license without usage or maintenance costs, but also enjoy a lot of exclusive benefits.

In addition, users can request extra services to make full use of iRender servers, for example, expand image threshold, increase the size of network drive (Z:), open port, install NVLink, and change hardware. Surprisingly, you get all of these services for free.

Conclusion

Greyscalegorilla’s Creation plugins for Cinema 4D will help you to visualize various aspect ratios, instantly build urban landscapes, or create complex reflectance materials. With all the outstanding advantages mentioned above, you must have found yourself the perfect choice for Cinema 4D projects. We believe together with Cinema 4D and Greyscalegorilla’s Creation plugins, our GPU accelerated servers will bring greater interactivity and speed to artist workflows. What users can get from iRender is not only the best quality products but also the high security and the most comfortable render time.
