Baking Nurbs into PLA

I found out a way to bake out any NURBS object to PLA in Cinema 4D. Found out this process on a project I did a couple of months ago involving a lot of spline animation with dynamics. I needed to make a small change in the spline animation and instead of doing it all over again and hoping it would turn out the way I wanted, I instead looked for a solution to bake out the Sweep NURBS on the spline to PLA and then edited the vertexes with a correction deformer. Hope you find this useful!

Skate edit in the works...

About a week ago I brought my camera to the skatepark for a quick video experiment I had floating in my head. I got to shoot the experiment with a friend of mine that I've shot before, I didn't plan on shooting him at all but he ended up showing up at the right time. While we were shooting the one clip I needed, one clip led to another and we ended up shooting enough clips for a small edit. So now a skateboarding edit in the works now. Here is quick peek.



This clip is actually two takes. One with a 16mm lens and the other with a 50mm lens. I stitched the two clips together by laying the 50mm over the 16mm shot and animating a fake "zoom-in" effect in After Effects. This effect is usually done in movies with two cameras but I don't have two cameras so I did it the cheap way that is probably not the easiest for the other peson performing the tricks but Steven is a champ I was able to get the job done.

Some examples from movies:
