  1. OK - I really hope you're able to get them back on line somehow / somewhere! They're far too valuable to be sat unviewed in storage!
  2. What has happened to the C4DCafe youtube channel? I thought all the training video were there - now I only see a series on Xpresso - that's all.
  3. I think the other important thing to not is that the relatively new CAd import options into C4D are excellent. Get STEP file and you can mesh that to the level of detail required on import.
  4. Frequently. I sometimes use Fusion, Rhino, FormZ... Another good tool to check out is MOI 3D. It's a simple NURBS based spline modeller created by the guy that originally created Rhino. It sits somewhere between a full blown CAD tool and something like C4D. It also offers 'decent' mesh output - for a CAD type tool. It's a good 'halfway house' for some technical modeling tasks.
  5. Sorry, but you've not got a hope. Think about it for a moment... what colour light is that tree being lit with? Exactly the same colour(s) you're trying to key out.
  6. Maybe MAXON and Adobe could do swapsies : ) Red Giant for Allegorithmic... LOL!
  7. Just for a moment... when he pulled it out of the wrapping.... I thought the box was going to say... new UV tools : ) LOL!
  8. Yes - I agree. Confusing at the best of times. It would be interesting to hear from Mr. McG. if this is just a temporary 'issue' or a permanent and deliberate change.
  9. Given the change of management... this year I did actually read the EULA before purchasing the R21 Perceptual. I did notice this clause - the emphasis is mine: "2.1 A perpetual license grants the user a time unlimited, remunerable, non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sublicensable right to install and use the software...." Unfortunately I don't have the R20 EULA to hand, but the R19 EULA included this clause, which is conspicuous by it's absence in R21 EULA: "3.6 Subject to compliance with Section 3.8, you are entitled to sell the original Software license to third parties in accordance with the terms of this Section: Resale of the Software to third parties is permitted if you identify the third party who will receive the Software and use rights to MAXON before the sale.... " So, my interpretation of 'at this moment...' is... No. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I nearly posted this when I read the EULA, and maybe I should have, but it was at a time when there was a huge amount of upset here already, so I held back. You would think with the '14 day check-in' licencing scheme a licence transfer would be quite possible. Mike
  10. I'm generally reluctant to recommend 'cloth' because I know it's likely to lead to days of torment... but...would inelastic cloth with a tear map work?
  11. WhUteVer it is, I guess it will be for subscribers - since we've just had a service update. If so, I'll try not to cry... : )
  12. OK guys - a process of elimination and think I've got an ID on the culprit : DEM Earth 4.005 Everything works as expected with that removed. Can anyone else on Windows with DEM Earth 4.005 installed confirm this? Rick, Hrvoje - could one of you guys drop Paul E a message and follow up? It's a crazy co-incidence that Paul and I have been having a 'bit of a chat' this morning about a customer service / licencing issue (completely unrelated to this) - and he probably won't want to hear from me again for a while !! LOL!
  13. Guys - it looks like a plugin related issue. I'm investigating and will report back
  14. ...and a follow up: Just powered up 21.115 on my Windows laptop - with exactly the same results. That's running a slightly different version of Windows - Win 10 Home, 10.0.17763 In the C:\Program Files\MAXON Cinema 4D R21\help\ directory I've just got a html redirect file - is that correct?
  15. Rick, Thanks for the follow up. First things first - thanks for listening to us and responding on this! OK: System: Windows 10 Pro, Version: 10.0.18363 Build 18363 C4D: R21.115 C4D prefs are: Online Content: on External Browser: on I've got a new scene, dropped a cube in, right clicked on cube and selected 'show help...". I don't get any browser launch (using Chrome as default). Repeating above right click with Prefs: External Browser: off still results in no action. I've tried this with various parametric object parameters, tool parameters etc - same situation, so it appears to be a 'global' problem at this point. I can launch the internal help window directly using the direct menu : Help > Show help. This also launches my default browser if prefs: External Browser is on. Are there any other C4D prefs / settings that could affect this?
