  1. Oh whoops! Should have seen the Mac interface
  2. Or just change it from a relative path to an absolute path. So instead of /users/accountname/desktop/... it would be c:/users/accountname/desktop/...
  3. I've been using XParticles for a while now, mind you, not in a production environment at all. I've been using it in my freetime to do some abstract artwork and get used to the plugin before I am willing to offer it as a skill to clients. I think it's a great Plugin, it hasn't crashed on me once and every single time something didn't work and I rebuilt it I noticed that I screwed up some setting. So no, I can't confirm that rebuilding stuff from scratch magically fixes some scenes, but I don't deny it either. I haven't used their tech support either, except once when I bought my license (used) and it didn't show up in my account. I got an answer in less than 4h every time. I think some of XParticles systems are very obscure and badly documented though especially since a lot of functions have been depracated and moved to other parts of the plugin. It's sometimes hard to get a clear answer to very simple questions. Their videotutorials are great though, learned a lot just by watching them. I haven't used the forum for the sole reason that it seems to be dead so I never bothered even registering so I can't comment on that. All in all though considering that's a plugin and not a dedicated software and the amount of features it delivers it's fine for me. As I said, I haven't really encountered any severe bugs or issues.
  4. Looks like he's using X-Particles. Not sure if you can emit particles from splines in C4D without plugins, but I don't think so.
  5. Have a look at this and see if it helps S&T_Glass.c4d
  6. I haven't contacted support yet, no. R20 is good enough for me right now so I don't worry too much about it, but it's on my to-do list. I know my way around PCs so of course, I did that. No process is running after it crashes, it's just gone completely and won't start again. The interesting thing is that the process actually starts up again, it's just stuck at something around 8% CPU and 250MB RAM usage.
  7. https://quixel.com/megascans/library?search=grass https://source.substance3d.com/allassets?q=grass https://www.poliigon.com/search?query=grass&type=texture Maybe you'll find something there
  8. Let's hope this fixes my random crashing issues. The worst part about those isn't the crashes themselves but that I cannot start C4D again unless I sign off my windows user account and sign in again or do a complete reboot. I've switched back to R20 for this reason for the time being.
  9. Set shading to "none" in the rendersettings of Sketch & Toon and then just use Alpha on your materials.
  10. Good luck! Let us know if you find something.
  11. Insydium has 40% off selected products: https://insydium.ltd/ I don't know what exactly "selected" entails but it's at least X-Particles & Cycles. Getting Cycles as we speak :3
  12. That's sounds like something OS / Hardware related. Are all your Chipset Drivers, BIOS and other things up to date? Have you looked at CPU temperatures during rendering? Normally if something get's slower over time I'd say there's a temperature problem because the CPU throttles itself.
