Quick Overview

Topcoat is a brand new texturing plugin from Greyscalegorilla that makes reflectance and adding realistic reflection to your scene easy and beautiful.



Manufacturer Part Number: GSG-TC

Everything we see in the real world is a reflection. It's the most important part of any C4D texturing workflow. So, when Reflectance came out in R16 and R17, we were excited to say the least. Finally, a realistic reflection tool that helped us achieve beautiful photo real renders with native C4D tools.

However, the Reflectance interface and workflow left a lot to be desired. It's with this in mind that we made topcoat. We made a texture tool for designers, not technicians. Just click to add the perfect type of reflection to your scene. Or, shift click to continue to layer multiple coats of texture for realistic textures every time.

Add Reflection The Easy And Fast Way
We know that making great looking renders is important to you and your clients. But it also has to be done fast! Your clients rely on you to work smarter. We built Topcoat to help designers and artists make beautiful realistic reflections in seconds, not minutes. Your reflections are the most important part of your render. We wanted to make that process not only easy, but fun too.

Render Fast Presets
We included 14 of our fastest and most beautiful render presets to help you speed up your workflow and your final render. We spent months figuring out how to optimize the Cinema 4D Physical Renderer in order to get you the best looking renders for the least amount of time.

Take The Hassle Out Of Reflectance
If you have tried to add reflection to many textures at once with Reflectance, you may have been disappointed. Topcoat gives you back the ability to add the same reflection to multiple materials. We offer full Copy and Paste functionality for the reflectance channel so you can take a look you built on one texture and apply it to many textures all at once.

Our Topcoat Modifier tools allow you to change settings on multiple textures as well. No more digging through the reflectance menu just to adjust your fresnel or bump settings.

From Dull And Worn To Shiny And New
Topcoat, of course, gives you many beautiful ways to add glossy and shinny reflections to your renders. I mean, it's Greyscalegorilla for crying out loud. But what you may not expect is the ability to add realistic procedural bumps and masks to each specific render layer to add the ultimate in realism. Add custom details to each layer and change them all together with our Modifier tools.

Did We Mention Car Paint?
Make beautiful custom paint jobs in Cinema 4D using our exclusive click to layer system. No more laborious setup for beautiful layered images. Just shift click and layer up to 16 different coats of paint on any of your Cinema 4D models. We even have specialty layers like Metal Flake, specialty bumps, and custom masks to make each layer of Reflectance unique to your scene.
