is it possible to use a video over the screen instead of static image?
Dear ZOMGsheikk, thank you very much for your purchase. Yes, there should be no problem in using a video instead of a static image.
ok i am having trouble while importing, after effect just crashes each time, i am using CC2015 and elements 1.6
Dear ZOMGsheikk, the model is made in Elements V2 with its new physical shaders. I think that might be the problem – since 1.6 doesn’t have them.
How it looks in C4D file? Is it single mesh, or editible many pieces?
I`m going to animate in C4D, does it have materials in C4D also, or it`s just for element 3d use?
Dear penkiametis, .c4d geometry file consist of separated pieces (around 25-30 parts for each model) – It is not a single mesh.
You can open it in C4D, delete some parts, change them, move them or else and reload the model in E3D to update the changes.
As a note though, included C4D geometry parts are subdivided so they are not really suitable for hard editing – it was meant to be used as it is in E3D, but in parts so you can hide what you don’t need. Anyway, if you ever need non-subdivided models – I have them as well and can send them your way in case you decide to purchase.
does it have proper materials in C4D?
Not all materials are included in C4D file – only those that have UV maps and textures. Plastic and metal materials / colors are not inside – only in E3D. But that should be a quick work even for a beginner C4D user (load C4D metal or plastic material preset and change the color). Other harder parts with textures (screen, flash, touch keys) are included in C4D so you shouldn’t worry about doing UV-s or anything.
That should do the trick. Just will add some credits to envato and will buy one
Alright thank you in advance. If you need any help don’t hesitate to ask. Kind regards, Tom
Looks good in C4D. just bought it:) I know, this is question will be out of this competence. But still, maybe you can help me… So the scene will look like, there are falling balls, thats surrounds the phone, they fly one by one and attracts to the phone, after a while, they fly away. I made it with emitter and attractor. Is it possible to transfer this animation to element 3d? I`ve tried to make balls also with a cloner, and with Reptide plugin exported obj sequence to element. But it`s slow.. Thank You again for a model
Thank you really glad that you like it.
Hmm, about that animation question – To be completely honest with you, I’m not much of an animator. Have you checked C4D Lite plugin for AE? Maybe it transfers animation? Yeah, cloner is way too slow in most cases – I would avoid it.
Ye I do have that plugin, but it renders at the same speed as C4D. I will figure something out. Thank You for good work, take care
Alright, hope you figure it out. Sorry that I couldn’t be much of a help, but I am not into animation at all unfortunately. You are very welcome – you too.
Wow, this looks incredible. Congratulations on being the featured item!
Thank you CrashBangMusic
If I open the ”.obj” file within Photoshop is there a way to load in the phone’s texture?
Dear pisarius_entertainment, first of all, thank you for your purchase. Unfortunately, I am really not aware of how Photoshop is handling 3d files or textures. I do all my 3d work in either Cinema4D or 3DSMax.
Hi there- Im getting a LOT of texture tearing on elements that are fairly far away from the camera from the “screen backdrop layer. Tried reloading and tried pushing the mesh. Is there anyway I can update this? As it is now its unusable from far away.
I was running a grid of 300 iphones with optimized meshes, but i cant even run 10 of these from a distance. otherwise its a great model. What are my options?
Dear StanLube, its a know issue with Element3D renderer. Sometimes, when the two objects are close together (in this case the screen backdrop layer and the glass) tearing appears from far away. As soon as you zoom in closer, problem goes away. My solution for this would be spreading those two objects slightly more from each other, so the tearing doesn’t appear. I will check it out more closely. Regards, Tom
