Cactus Dan has passed away


Recommended Posts

Can't believe it. Just got some valuable tips a few weeks ago and now he is gone. I learned again: Live every day like your last and I really admire him for being so helpful till the end. May he live in a better place or rest in peace. A lot of people will never forget him.

Adios Dan! Always a pleasure to work with and amazing tools. I too hope someone picks them up, maybe MAXON could integrate them into their tool set? Safe journey my friend.   Rory.

I am writing plugins myself (not published yet), and I asked a question in the forum. To my utter pleasure, Cactus Dan wrote me a personal message, with tips on how to compile plugins for both Windows

Wow, so sad to hear this. I remember he'd had surgery years ago and was away for months, so maybe not a surprise to him. I bought his CD Tools back in 2007 I think. He was very helpful with support an

This came out of nowhere, as a long time cafe member and user of his plugins, I had nothing but good experiences in my interactions with him. His plugins are what has kept me with C4D in recent years. A loss of a great guy and the Cinema 4D community.

So very sorry to hear about Dan's passing.  This is a sad day for the C4D community.  He was an inspiration to many and to me personally when I was developing plugins for C4D.  Maybe I will get back to that one day.  :(

At first glance at topic title I really hoped that someone was playing a rude joke and it will just result in another ban but I was wrong :(
My condolences to his family and loved ones.

Dan was truly decent, well measured, polite, helpful, respectful, modest.... Even with very difficult health issues he never complained, imposed or made a fuss about it. I knew he enjoyed  riding in the wild and it was always stunning to see how well he balanced his private life and work.
I just hope he found peace and happiness out there in big blue prairie, and all of us can just say thank you, thank you for all the contribution for C4D community, first as a gentleman then second as plugin developer.

Rest in peace

Hi Hrvoje

Unfortunately no joke. When I saw the announcement at CG Talk I quickly came here and checked to see if there was a similar announcement. As there wasn't I thought that it was important that there was one and it was appropriate that I made the announcement since Cactus Dan had been a long time supporter and I think the first one to come on board when I started doing the banner ads to pay for the cafe hosting.

I hope that there is some way that Dan's plugins can live on at least in the short term anyway.

Cheers

Nigel
