Maxon Gives Away Plugins for Cinema 4D XLBaker, dirtyNUTS available for download
Baker, as its name implies, is similar to other baking packages for 3D programs. It converts all of an object's texture, lighting and shadow properties into a single bitmap file. This helps make manipulation easier and rendering faster. It can also bake mathematical shaders and works with both Cinema 4D XL 7 and BodyPaint 3D. (Textures from BodyPaint 3D can be baked for use in Cinema 4D or other 3D packages.)
The dirtyNUTS plugin is used to "rough up" a scene. It allows users to place dirt, dust and snow (an similar elements) anywhere in a scene, including cracks and crevices.
The plugins are available for Macintosh and Windows via the official plugin download site for Cinema 4D XL, Plugin Cafe. Maxon has not said whether the offer will expire at any point. To download the plugins, visit http://www.plugincafe.com. For more information about the promotion, visit http://www.maxoncomputer.com.
