Finally got around to putting out my 2012 (more like 2011) reel. This is a collection of what I’ve been hard at work on over the past year or so. I’ve got to say in 2011 I learned a lot, worked on some of the coolest projects yet, and met a ton of very cool people in the industry, and 2012 is looking to be even better year! I appreciate all of you who have visited my newly update blog over the past few months and I hope you’ll stay tuned in the coming weeks and months. I plan on putting out some Cinema 4D tutorials and some more free stuff! Here’s to 2012! Keep on learnin and hustlin!

While working on recent project, my buddy had an issue with way too many objects with way too many compositing tags. He wanted to figure out a way to be able to solo all the objects with compositing tags on them. We all got to the point where we could go to the Filter Window and select all the compositing tags, but not the objects the compositing tags were applied to.

Make sure you select one of the compositing tags in the Object Manager first before you go to the Filter window and Right-Click “Select All Compositing”.  From that point, it’s as simple as hitting the Up Arrow which takes you from the Tag level in the Attributes window to the Object level Attributes window.  From there you create a Layer, drag and drop that layer to the Object layer property, then go to the Layer window and hit the circle on the far left, which is the solo function.  Viola!

Simple solution to a complex issue!
