Importing .obj files into C4d using riptide
by Brent Newton on Aug 17, 2011 at 9:22:37 pm
Hello everyone. I just purchased and downloaded an .obj file from turbosquid. It would help tremendously to have the materials and mapping import with it. I downloaded Riptide, as it is often referred to as the solution to this problem. Unfortunately I'm having a tremendous amount of trouble getting it to work properly.
When I try to import the .obj through Riptide, all the objects parts appear to be in my objects box. But the model itself doesn't appear anywhere in the viewport. I thought it might be some kind of scale issue, but trying different scales hasn't helped.
Additionally, the textures are not importing. Do I need an .mtl file for that to work? I didn't receive one from Turbosquid when they gave me the files.
I am on a Mac running OS 10.6.7 - My C4D is release 10 - Riptide R9.1+ v1.9 - PC, Mac PPC, Mac UB
Any help you guys could give me would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!
