We’ve (my company) have been looking at D5 as potential for some a handful of upcoming projects where we need to render some big city scenes. I tried the D5 live link to C4D which was cool, but limited when it came to bringing animation over.
In unreal you can use datasmith to import animated objects/cameras but in d5 I can only get static cameras with the live link but animation doesn’t come over. This is a huge dealbreaker for us.
We just want to use D5 as the render engine but be able to do all our dynamic camera animation and objects in C4D. I just think my industry and CG/VFX are all searching for faster ways to get our work out but don’t want to have to learn Unreal just to render our work.
