Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of CINEMA 4D R18 Essential Training: VFX.
- [Instructor] If your membership includes access to the Exercise Files for this course, you can download those course files and put them on your desktop like I've done here. Inside the Exercise Files folder, you'll find another set of folders that correspond to the chapters that have Exercise Files in them. As we go throughout the course, just simply open up the chapter folder, and the file name you see on screen. That way you'll be able to follow along with me, step by step, with the exact same files that I'm using. There is also a folder called Source Footage, which contains various supporting materials for use in different chapters.
If you open a Cinema 4D project, and you find that there are items missing, and you've received a warning when you try to render, simply come over to the Texture Manager to reveal what will be missing. And then from there, you can choose to Relink, and Replace Textures from either the Source Footage folder, or alternatively, you may need to locate a file that is relevant to that chapter. So just navigate to the name of the chapter folder, and choose Open.
Conversely, if you open up an After Effects project that has missing footage, you can reconnect the media by coming up to here, and typing in, missing, which would actually find any missing footage, and then, anything that's highlighted, you can right-click and choose Replace Footage with File. Then, locate the file in the Exercise Files folder, and click Ok. If you don't have access to the Exercise Files, that's okay too. You can still follow along using your own files, or simply sit back and watch, as I take you through each individual exercise.
