Wishing you and yours the Happiest Holidays.

And in the spirit of giving and spreading some cheer, below you'll find some Cinema 4D gifts in the way of free models, generators, plugins, Xpresso rigs, lighting rigs and materials for Cinema 4D I stumbled upon and thought I would share.

Merry Christmas,
and a Happy New Year to all.

New version of the Lego Generator (Xpresso) by Kucici over at Grafikuj.pl in Polish, English and Spanish.

Download v1.0.67 HERE. (download on the right)
Couple notes from kucici (in English):
If you want make bricks editable, you have to turn on object tree in Layers (M column), then select them all (with childrens), make editable and repeat it few times. Then you will be able to connect it to single object.
I have to find soloution for this ;)

Library should be pasted into the \library\browser folder. Generator will appear in the Content Browser. You can choose english or polish language.

- added building options,
- added automatic naming of the material,
- minor optimizations.

How to add more bricks:
- for separated material for each brick, you need to add a new brick from the Content Browser to a list of objects,
- if bricks have to be with the same material, just copy and paste a brick which is already added to scene.

- for different material for each brick, you just need to copy and paste a brick which is already added to scene,
- if bricks have to be with the same material (but different color), just copy and paste brick, then select those, that you want to change a color and do it in LEGO Generator preferences.

I want to take a little space here to personally thank all that created these great gifts and many others not posted here through out the year and sharing their creations selflessly with the C4D community. I wish them and theirs the Happiest of Holidays.  Again, Thank you!

And thank you to those visiting my meager blog, I hope you enjoyed it thus far and perhaps learned some things here and there along the way as I have.

Happy Holidays everyone,
