Re: rigging multiple car in one scene

Can you post a screenshot of your hierarchy? I did a test in Maya 2009 32-bit and it worked for me.

Re: No Craft Shelf Button after Maya Crash

I think Maya might have crashed during the first time you loaded Craft Director Studio and since Maya saves all changes on exit, if it crashes, those changes will be lost.

Re: When burning out, wheels turn backwards

Max 2010 4wheeler ext 9.2.1 I animated everything at 24 fps and it rendered visually fine. Then changed frame rate to 240 for a small segment, which will change the timeline accordingly, I just playback at 24fps for 10x slo-mo effect. When rendered, they definately go backwards. Not just the classi...

Re: No Craft Shelf Button after Maya Crash

Hey Guys, Maya crashed during a session, and now, after rebooting, I no longer have a button in the shelf to relaunch Craft. Does anyone know how to the get the button back?

Re: VrayPhysicalCamera

I tried VRay for 3ds Max 2009 and to me it seemed pretty straight forward for the focus effect. Target Distance to Target Distance.
FOV was trickier since it uses degrees so you have to use some math to convert the value when it's transferred.

Re: When burning out, wheels turn backwards

I tried the Burnout in CINEMA 4D and I'm getting some strange rotation so that's probably what you were talking about. We'll look into it and hopefully we can have it sort for the next release (early 2010).

Re: When burning out, wheels turn backwards

Didn't notice this until i changed frame rate to 240 from 24 so that i could cut to a slo-mo burnout shot. The wheels very clearly are spinning in reverse. It does this both from a stand-still, and also when using the burnout while driving to do a doughnut. Anyone else run into this? I'll manually ...
