Lite Tutorial Not Current?

I’m going through the Cineware Party tutorial and have hit a roadblock here: https://www.cineversity.com/vidplaylist/cineware_party/cineware_party_adding_balloons.

Apparently there was some significant overhaul of the pen/spline system because what’s shown on the screen in the tutorial doesn’t look remotely like what I’m seeing in C4D Lite R19, so I’m not able to make a Bezier spline. I tried starting with the pen tool to see how far that would get me and it wasn’t far at all. Definitely didn’t seem like what I need.

Hi finalstrife7,

Please start any new question only with the HELP button below the tutorial. Otherwise, people might not find it. Thank you very much.

You can create the Balloon as suggested, with the Pen Tool. It provides you with the option to create a Bezier Spline. IF that looks completely different, I will give you an upload link for a screenshot. (Amazon, Google, DropBox, Adobe, Apple clouds are excellent, anything else, I might not touch, for security reasons.)

Please have a look at this one minute clip I have recorded for you.

All the best

Thanks, I hadn’t seen the options portlet on the bottom right. I think somehow I lost that on my prior attempt.

I definitely did click the Help button. I wasn’t sure what else TO do actually, so if something was done wrong with this first post, I don’t know what. This is what I see when I click the Help button: https://imgur.com/a/Kv4Msqk

If this post is in the wrong forum for instance, then I believe a developer will need to change what the button links to since I didn’t see an option to change it in that screenshot.

Hi finalstrife7,

I hope it is now working for you. If not, please share what you can see. I’m happy to look into it.

Thanks for the screenshot that is indeed weird. The HELP button stets usually the title and that title shouldn’t be changed.
I have reset the title so others can find this thread. If that was all based on a glitch, thanks for the information. If so, really sorry for my input on that. I will have to find now a set up that can reproduce it this flaw. WE try to keep things organized, so any information can be found in a specific manner.

It is the correct forum as the problem you described was related to the version in the tutorial and the functionality needed.

My best wishes
