Reinstall No File Preview Thumbs (macOS)

Recommended Posts

my very first installation of C4D the preview thumbnails of a saved *.c4d file worked just fine

had to reinstall macOS and after that C4D I can do what I want in the settings but the file preview in Finder windows macOS isn't showing up

it just shows like this




Finder window settings





the settings pane inside Cinema 4D


don't know what to do



Cinema4D settings

settings C4D.png


wherever the file is saved it shows the preview in C4D but not anymore in Finder window



Finder settings to show previews (it works with all sorts of files like jpeg but not the c4d anymore)

    Seems that for some reason OS is not registering it properly. Do you maybe have other C4D installations on same machine?



    nope, only Bodypaint R19


    I could reinstall Cinema but... all the settings I don't try to think of that nightmare (preferably not)
