Rock Generator Plugin for C4D by mp5gosu Rock Generator Plugin for C4D by mp5gosu
###
Update: Version 0.92 is now available.
You'll find it here: RockGEN092

Changes in 0.92:
This update is primarily a bugfix-update! There are some new functions though:

- should not crash anymore
- enhanced displacement handling (now shape scale controls the displacement height)
- fixed UV-mapping behaviour
- added direct displacement control
- rearranged in tabs, separating mesh, materials and distribution
- added "real" random seed, increases workflow
- added renderer switch (AR/Vray)
- added two more material presets (Asteroid/Jagged Rock)
- added distribution routines (won't work right now. see readme, why.)


_________________
Hey guys... I found it really hard to create realistic looking rocks in Cinema 4D. People who also tried to create such, know what I'm talking about. Now here is the solution. :)

Quote of the included readme.txt:

RockGen is a free Plugin for Maxons Cinema 4D. With this plugin you can easily create random rocks.
The process of creation is very in intuitive, controlled by a few parameters. Also, RockGen creates
Materials automatically. Those contain one of three included textures in different channels
for creating a maximum of realism.



Download here: RockGEN09beta

Have Fun ;)

Yes. The plugin has been discontinued some years ago. Feel free to download the source and implement additional features. :)

Just a quick info: the version downloadable on my website has been made compatible with R15. For those who had problems getting it to work: It was my fault, I accidentally linked to an outdated version. :stupidme:

I thought I'd try to get this to work on R15 for the fun of it. It turned out to be an easy fix. On line 129 of the RockGen092.cof file there is a tag "TPhong", but since R12 these tags are case sensitive. So to fix it, just change the tag to "Tphong" (change the capital P to lower case p) and it works just fine. I only have R15 to test it on, but I wouldn't be surprised if this fix makes it work for R12-R15.

Hello. Thanks for your input. The fixed version has already been on the server for some years. But good to hear, that the plugin also works on R15.

Please refer to www.roberthitzer.de/index.php?… and download Rockgen 0.92 Source. Then, insinde yout plugins\RockGen directory, remove the RockGen.cob file and copy the *.cof into the same directory. That should fix your problem.

Hi,

please replace the RockGen.cob file in your "<Cinema 4D>\plugins\RockGen" folder with the .cof file from this archive: [link]

(Make sure, you delete the RockGen.cob file before copying the one provided by the downloaded archive).

Sorry for the inconvenience. :)


Cheers!

hi guys, does that work with C4d R14 ? i unzipped the files in the Plugins directory but i still don't see the plugin inside C4D under my plugin list. If someone managed to install it on R14, i would be more than happy to hear how you did it guys.
Regards...

Hi there.

Unfortunately, this does not work in R14. R14 comes with sculpting functionality, so this should be the way to go then.
