I need a metric size comparison of Cinema 4D and 3Ds Max.
show user profile  Typheus
Currently trying to learn Real Flow 4, but this one tutorial first deals with creating a box in Cinema 4D, before moving onto Real Flow itself. I used 3Ds Max instead, but after importing the box into Real Flow, it was ridiculously huge.

The tutorial said that the box should have a size of 400mx400mx400m, so I just hit 400 for the height, width, and length of the box. Either I'm doing this right and I'm reading this wrong, or 3Ds Max has a different way of defining size.

Anyone care to help me with this?

Thank ya kindly.

And to be honest, mm is making a helluva lot more sense, but I think he just completely messed it up. I'll mess around with it and see what comes out closest. Thanks.

you should set your scaling in realflow, typicall import from max is scale 0,1 i think.
