Camera animation

Post by pavoda » Sun Sep 09, 2018 9:11 am

I try to create an animation - just a camera through the interior.

I am surprised that C4D exports the whole scene for each frame again and again.. also each shader bakes into the texture repeatedly. It takes a lot of time and hundreds/thousands copies of same data are made unnecessarily.

How can I optimize this process?

Enable "Skip writing existing meshes".

also for the shaders simply pic the baked shader texture into the material after exporting it first, that should save a lot of time.

Oh, ok it is good tip. Sometimes I use it especially for big textures.

It's under export settings ( at least in Blender :? ).

the C4D exporter does check if a object is used in the whole animation without relevant changes and then exports it only once and does reference to this one mesh through the whole animation.
I bet the baking of shaders is what takes the most time for your export!

I tested it on a large scene without materials. One frame lasted about 10 sec, 50 frames 30 sec. It's really what you say. Thanks
I watch the shaders.
