By default, the archive is created inside your project directory. If you want to use a custom destination, you can enable Archive destination and select your path.
You can specify a custom name using the Archive destination field, by using .vuc as extension.
RANCHecker do support the Take system of Cinema 4D.
You can check several Takes to create multiple projects archive in one go.
RANCHecker will create one independent project per Take with all the assets duplicated. If you want to upload once the assets for multiple projects, please see the next section FTP assets.
If you have a slow internet connection and need to render several scenes which all use the same assets (textures, etc.), you may want to use the possibility of uploading the assets only once, and then include in your project archive only the changing elements (basically the .c4d scene file).
1. Creation of your FTP directory
Please contact us by e-mail if you need a temporary FTP directory for assets storage. We will create it and send you back the information to access your directory.
2. Project preparation
a. Show the option by going into Menu Settings > Show/Hide advanced settings
b. Enable Seperate assest from archive
c. Clik on Check Project
RANCHecker creates a folder containing the assets (the .vuc archive contains only the .c4d file).
You can now upload the .vuc archive using your user account on our website, the project will use the FTP assets. If you want to re-use the assets for another project, you just need to use the correct folder name when you prepare with RANCHecker:
The asset folder will be generated on your computer, but this time no need to re-upload it.
Please note that:
