Twinmotion direct link should work with user origin coordinates



When you work on a georeferenced project, your twinmotion model will be distorted becouse of the high coordinate values. The solution would be using the user origin during the export process instead of internal origin.

As for Cinema4D exports/exchange,

it will always use the VW file Origin - which is good.

And Cinema 4D also does not like geometry far from its internal origin,

for typical accuracy problems.


As Jeff mentioned, model's Z height may stay a problem.

I usually model my Buildings from entry level Z = 0.000 which works fine

for exports. But that needs to move the DTM's Layer in Z or similar.

Also I add an angle in georeferencing (north deviation), to align my Model

to XY in Plan View

I think this whole issue could be solved with an easy direct link setup menu, where you could choose if you want to use the user origin for X and Y, and  you could reduce Z by a desired amount.

I logged a jira bug suggesting the Datasmith Direct Link Preferences dialog have an option to specify the origin in VB-188291 Twinmotion numeric precision issues
