Frame selected objects correctly in camera



  • Hi Riccardo,

    Absolutely! ☺ (and apologies)

    I want to iterate through all of the scene polygon objects and render it to separate images.
    I want the objects to be isolated from the rest and framed into camera before the render is created.

    Now, the problem I'm having is that the camera framing is not working accordingly with the c4d.CallCommand(12151).
    So all of the renders are done with the objects rendered in the same position in relationship to the camera and clipped, as per the render tests below.

    It could be something I'm forgetting to add, as I couldn't find an example that can help me.

    Here's my example scene: scene_example.c4d

    Thank you in advance! ☺

  • Hi AndreAnjos, thanks for following up here.

    With regard to your question I forward you to this post inherited in the Legacy forum.

    In the proposed solution from Niklas, it's presented a solution to render just one object (the active object). Extending the code to run over all the scene objects is pretty straightforward.

    Best, Riccardo



  • @r_gigante
    Thank you for your help! ☺

    To be honest I did follow Niklas code before and was trying to adapt it to mine. It didn't work at the time and I'm going to give it another go just in case I missed something.

    I will add my conclusion or questions along the way.

    Thanks again! 👍



  • Hi AndreAnjos,

    actually before pointing to Niklas' post I tried it and I tested it and actually worked properly. What issue are experiencing?

    Cheers, Riccardo



  • @r_gigante
    Hi Riccardo,
    Using Niklas script by itself works fine, which it does look like an improvement to mine anyway.
    But before I can definitely check that it works fine inside my code, I'm going to try and add a few other things.

    For example: We have a lot of legacy files that I don't have a clue of how it's scenes are organised. The only thing I know is they're messy. In terms of hierarchy and also how the axis for each object are positioned. So, I'm doing a bit of guess work in trying to frame the objects into a temporary camera where it can been seen in a position and be identify for what it is.

    So Niklas script will help frame the objects, but at the moment is not working well for a position that would show what the object is.
    That's the reason why I will need more testing and come back with the more information. Perhaps than I can actually tell you if my initial issue is valid.

    Sorry for the long explanation, but hopefully it will make some sense!

    Thank you! ☺

    Andre



  • @r_gigante
    I do have a question related more with the way that Niklas is dealing with memory in he's script, if you don't mind.

    If I'm not mistaken, Niklas isolates the object by creating a context document where he will copy the cloned object to, render it and then kill the document.
    While at the moment I'm thinking more in the lines of isolating the object by inserting into the layer and solo the layer instead.

    How would my thinking would differ in efficiency in relationship to Niklas idea, please?
    This would be great to understand!

    Thank you in advance! ☺

    Logically the code makes sense to me in everything is doing, but is still not working accordingly, which lets me to believe that I'm not doing something right that I can't no longer see or understand.

    If you try this code with the file that I've attached to this thread you will probably see that is not actually showing the full model in the view.
    The other issue I'm having is the case of the model being outside of the safe frame, he will continue running the check_if_in_view() function for a very long time and at the end the model is not rendered correctly.

    Thank you again for your help!
    I hope this can be informative for other people as well ☺

  • Hi AndreAnjos, thanks for following up here.

    I've tested your scene and I do see the issues you've mentioned but I don't get the need for the additional code (that's actually causing the issue) responsible for zooming out things that are not completely in the camera frustum.

    But I think that beside moving out on the camera Z-axis, you should consider moving the camera also on X and Y -to re-center the object - otherwise you might get issues with geometry being-clipped since you're simple moving away from the object and zooming back on it to get it in the SafeFrame area.

    Best, Riccardo

    PS. With regard the layer approach, if properly delivered I don't see that much difference in the final result.

    Hi Riccardo,
    Thanks for coming back to me!

    I've tested your scene and I do see the issues you've mentioned but I don't get the need for the additional code (that's actually causing the issue) responsible for zooming out things that are not completely in the camera frustum.

    The reason I thought about adding the zooming out code, was mainly to do with the fact when frame object command runs, it frames on your frame frustum and not your safe frame frustum (if I'm not missing anything). It will clip the object anyway. So the need to move the camera or object is necessary, I think.

    But I think that beside moving out on the camera Z-axis, you should consider moving the camera also on X and Y -to re-center the object - otherwise you might get issues with geometry being-clipped since you're simple moving away from the object and zooming back on it to get it in the SafeFrame area.

    Yes I completely get what you are saying with moving the camera on the other axis. Something i need to learn. ☺

    PS. With regard the layer approach, if properly delivered I don't see that much difference in the final result.

    Awesome! Thank you! ☺
    Will keep this alive until I find the best working solution.

  • Hi all,

    Apologies for the delay, but only had time to revisit this issue this week.
    So I found the solution and thought about posting here for other people. It's probably not the best one, but it works for me and I'm happy with the final results.

    Like to thank Niklas, Scott and Riccardo for helping with this, as a lot of the information came from them, which I just adapted.
    So this is developed to render with Octane, but you can change to whatever render settings you need.

    """
    The script is a blend of techniques that I found to be working at the end.
    It starts by getting all of the polygon object in the scene, iterating through each object and soloing it in a layer.
    Creates the objects, camera, materials and render settings for the environment.
    Focus the object first before calculating if all of the object is in the scene.
    Because the camera has a target tag connected to a moving null that sits under each object is rendering, the position reaches a conclusion when object is inside the camera frame.
    I didn't want to create a new thread to run the script as I prefer the user not be using cinema and let it run. We can't afford to have Cinema crashing at the same time.

  • Thanks a lot @AndreAnjos for sharing the code.

    I'll try to have a look at it and maybe contribute if/where needed. For the time being I'm glad to hear that you were able to tackle with it.

    Cheers, Riccardo
