C4D freezes when rendering xpExplosioFX without caching

Hey Guys, I posted this issue to the support team. The IPR window works fine when previewing xpExplosioFX in the scene with Cycles4D update and new shaders. But as soon as I hit render C4D starts preparing and then freezes after a while (minutes). After doing some more testing I discovered that this...

Rendering xParticles 4 - xpExplosiaFX with Cycles4D?

Anybody tried this yet? :)

Not getting it to work properly at the moment.....
Figuring out to setup a shader or what tags are needed.

Some 'smoke' is rendered. But no details like in viewport.

Substance Asset replacement

Hi, Currently I have a nice material setup for loading a Substance asset with Cycles4D. When I replace the asset with another substance asset the selected channels switch back to the first value. This is very time consuming cause I have to dive in to all 9 nodes to select the channel. For example. I...

Re: Cinema4D Voronoi effect not rendering but visible in IPR (only in C4d R19)

Hi Martin, Bob Walmsley at Insidium is checking it:) R18 has no problems. It's only happening in R19. The workaround is clicking the 'save' file button off and on again in the render options window. Then the voronoi is rendered......crazy but true! Also mailed Maxon. But they don't (wanna) check thi...

Re: Cinema4D Voronoi effect not rendering but visible in IPR (only in C4d R19)

The weirdest thing happening here! Suddenly in another scene setup the Vornoi is rendered. BUT.......only when 'Save' is checked under regular image in the render settings. When unchecked the voronoi object disapears.... :shock: I already checked with Maxon. The say...contact Insydium...we don't te...

Re: Spotlight Gobo with Cycles4D?

Hi Mohamed, Physical or not...I'm realy missing the functionality to project textures:) I've tried with an object and emissive material. But this light is to diffuse. Not as direct as a slideprojector or spotlight. Also did a test with blocking the spotlight with an circel object. [attached] This is...

Hey guys, I want to create a spotlight with a gobo. So for example projecting a bright star on a wall. With the cinema4D spotlight this is easy. But I can't get it working in Cycles4D. I added a light tag to the spotlight and also created a lightmaterial. Changing the color within this material work...
