Installing the EPix plugin

  • Unzip the file into your CINEMA 4D "plugins" folder.
    Please check you get a folder called "epixwriter" containing epixwriter.cdl, epixwriter.cdl64 and epixwriter.dylib, and a subfolder called "res". If not, select the option to use folder names when extracting.
  • Restart CINEMA 4D.
  • Using the EPix plugin

  • Adjust the Render settings

    • Add the EPix Writer Effect

    • Set Antialiasing to None

    • Specify the Image Size

    • Optionally, specify a path in the Regular Image section
  • Render to the Picture Viewer

    The EPix writer will produce an EPix file for each frame rendered. If a Save path is specified, the EPix file will be written to the same folder using the filename with a frame number and a .epx extension added. Otherwise, it will be written next to the scene file, using its name with a frame number and the .epx extension.

    Note that the EPix writer cannot produce EPix files for oblique parallel projections, such as the Frog camera.
