    if i'm still awake in half an hour i'm gonna swing by... 😉

     

    Yeah, it's pretty late for anyone in Europe, I have to think about the USA because they make up the majority of my audience. so I'm trying to balance a time that'll be ok for both.

    i'm mostly still awake at 12 ... today i'm a bit tired though, too much work lately 😉 but i'm confident i can stay awake another hour or so.

    When I got the trial of R21 lately it basically said by starting the trial I was automatically giving my consent to let MAXON collect info on me and my computer and let them do whatever they please with it.  I won't be able to join at that time so I'm mentioning it here.  I liked C4D because it didn't have this that other big companies had.  Now it's horrible.

     

    Previous versions did have the anonymous stats option. Just there was a checkbox to uncheck for opting out from a prompt. It can be changed in some of the preferences. It usually appeared after an installation, but it did pop up at random times in R20 iirc.

    Why would they ever do that, makes no sense? And you can change this here:

    ... you could turn off every option in preferences for communications, but c4d connect to licence servers everytime you open c4d and who knows (from users) what kind of data these are.

    Thanks buddy, I just hope that I didn't ramble too much, it was really late and I was shooting from the hip. I also really hope that it didn't upset anyone at MAXON, that wasn't the intention, and I know those guys work really hard. The software is still as solid as it ever was, I just think the new sub model is a bit of a turn off for some users.

    Even if you can turn it off in the settings the fact that you are forced to agree to it means they can legally do whatever they want even if you uncheck the box in the preferences.

     

    Does "Disable" mean you are disabling being anonymous or disabling the Anonymised Application Activity monitor?
