    I am very excited Tim. I love your fxphd classes and when I found out you were doing a MILG with AE and C4D, I got really excited. Thanks again for being awesome!

    On Video 2 @ 41:00, You say to hold down Control and drag to layer. This should add all objects, sub objects and tags to a layer. I’m using version 10, when I control drag it still only adds the the main object. Is there another way to add all objects and tags to a layer.

    Hi Tim,

    I bought Milg6 and I am in the middle of the lessons and happy with it so far – well done presentation Tim., I´ve learned a lot already. But I have some minor problems rebuilding the project on my own. Now my question is where can I ask or send even my project file to solve the issues. At Motionworks or here on your side?

    I have only watched a few lessons so far but I’m really digging it so far. Nice work and thanks!

    Hi Tim;

    I’m an AE user but 100% a noob when it comes to C4D. Unfortunately I missed the FXPHD C4D 101 course this semester(doesn’t look like its offered in the October session). Is MILG6 geared towards C4D beginners, or does it assume you know your way around? I would love to start learning C4D but wanted to make sure investing in that product will be a suitable move for someone with my experience. Appreciate the info.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question
    I’m following MILG6 using a G5 quad OSX 10.5 4gb Ram, C4d 11
    and the renders are only using 100%, and ignoring the other 300%
    so the times I get for renders are much longer than yours in the video
    I’ve chosen 4 render threads in preferences
    do I need to configure something else to make C4d use all the cpu’s
    Cheers for the cool training

    Thanks for the answer….I made some changes- halved the polygons of the sphere, and doubled the radius of the cylinder, and then i could see that the computer was rendering ok using all cores.. the original settings were completely stalling the machine… thanks again for the awesome training..

    Do you talk about how to eliminate the transparent line that shows up when using multiple object buffers to separate things? This is an issue that’s really been bugging me, and minimax just can’t help on this one, it just makes it worse lol.

    Thanks Tim! I will give alpha add a try, that maybe just what I’m looking for. ^_^ if so, I will be one relieved camper.

    worked like a charm ! Thanks Tim! You wouldn’t happen to have a solution from getting obj sequences into C4d other than epla?

      To be honest you will need some experience with C4D to follow along with the MILG training. I’m sure FXPHD will re-run the c4d101 course again in the future, unfortunately I have no control over when this may happen.

      Thanks for your interest.
