FastCheck for Cinema 4D

img

FastCheck Plugin 1.1. Free for private and commercial projects. Needs at least Cinema4D Release 9.1.

The purpose of this (very small) plugin is to speed up the creating and applying of a checkerboard texture in Cinema 4D. When adjusting the UV coordinates, I often create a checkerboard material and apply it to the model which makes working with the UVs easier. To do this you have to create a new material and you have to create a new Checkerboard surface in the color channel. This material has to be applied to the object and finally you have to adjust the scale of the checkerboard. Plenty of unnecessary mouse clicks.

With this plugin creating and applying the checkerboard texture will be realised with 1 single mouse click. Adjusting the size of the checkerboard is done with a slider. You also have the possibility to chose between 3 different checkerboard textures.

How to use FastCheck

FastCheck works on multiple objects in a scene but only on 1 single object at a time (the selected object).

  1. Click arrow to unfold a combo box to change the checkerboard texture of the selected object.
  2. Apply or remove the checkerboard texture (a polygon object or primitive has to be selected)
  3. Size slider (a polygon object or primitive has to be selected)

You can chose between 3 different checkerboard textures.

Requirements

FastCheck v1.1 needs at least Maxon's Cinema 4D Release 9.1 on Windows or Macintosh.

Installation

Unpack the zip file and copy the FastCheck folder into your Cinema 4D plugins folder. Don't change the file structure or delete files from this directory. Restart Cinema 4D and you will find a new entry in the Plugins-Menu. That's it!

It's best if you dock your FastCheck dialog window into the Cinema 4D layout. Take a look at the following screenshot to see where I put it.
