Hi there

Since Corona Decal has been added to the most recent Cinema4D Version 8 Daily build, i am eager to find out how to use it, but i can't find any resources online how this feature works, not even for 3DsMax-

Maybe i'm not good at finding what i am looking for, but that it's burried so deeply?

Help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hello,

as Decals are still a daily build feature, we did not yet create any tutorials or articles on it. I believe the best practice would be to try and play around with it to understand.
From my limited understanding - A material/map applied to Decal is projected onto a surface of an object it overlaps, ideal for e.g. graffiti on a wall or even something displaced, such as man-hole covers or refractive, such as windows.

If you need further info, feel free to ask here.

Thanks,
Jan

Its really simple and works very well. Just add Corona decal from the menu and assign a decal material to it. Then extend the corona decal object to as far you want the decall to project on.
Here's an example I made with Megascans decall and a car model. What is really nice the decal projects on everything like a slide projector. Especially with mud thats cool. The mud appears on the glass etc.
