  1. I was in the same situation; I bought both and installed XParticles fine, but could find nothing on why Cycles4d for R20 was not being detected. Would be simple, and handy, if they just included a note on the installation page "R20 users please also do this" for example. That said, reading this topic fixed the problem for me... Thanks Useng, that sorted it for me :-) Just copied the 2 files over, started C4D, and was prompted for the serial. Woohoo!
  2. I have got it working now just adding both a linear field and a random field (set to blend mode overlay); this causes my cloned objects to appear in a semi-random fashion as I animate the effector, just as I wanted :-)
  3. Aha! That's interesting and good to know. The tutorial I'm following is from 2 years ago, so using an older version which is why this didn't crop up. I shall spend sometime this evening experimenting with fields and then go back to the tutorial. It should be a good learning experience :-) Thanks for the pointer!
  4. I bought C4D R19 earlier this year, and have recently upgraded to R20. Following along a GSG tutorial on using effectors with cloners. A Plain effector is applied to a cloner object, and then a Random effector is stacked with the weighting set to 100% (and scale/position/rotate all set to 0). This neatly adds an element of randomness to the Plain effector in R19 but not in R20/ I can replicate this in R19, but not in R20 where it seems to have no effect. I'm assuming this has something to do with the introduction of fields to control the effectors fall-off, but just can't resolve it. I've attached images showing a simple demonstration in both R19 and R20. The plain effector is set to move the cloned objects up in Y. In both cases I've applied the random effector above the plain effector in the cloner effector hierarchy, and the only random effector setting is the weighting set to 100%. As the images show, in R19, the cloned objects are moved up randomly as the effector passes. In R20, the entire row moves up as one objects - the random effector is not being used. I'm sure it's something simple; grateful for any tips! Thanks in advance
  5. As title: interested in buying C4D studio, pref R19 but will consider earlier versions with an upgrade route. Must be UK based I believe to transfer licence within the UK (though if you know different, happy to consider!)
  6. That is a definite plus point for me, and one of the reasons I like the look of C4D (aside from the workflow!). I've got an Adobe CC subscription, and whilst I would like to own outright, the cost for me isn't that great, so happy to keep it subscribed (getting the ongoing updates is great - I guess in the same way as the MSA mentioned below) Ah, brilliant - thanks for the link to their guidelines, and for the MSA advice. I have looked at the MSA briefly, and the cost for upgrading definitely needs to be factored in for me. (along with the cost of XParticles, which look amazing from the demos I've been!) Thanks both, really useful feedback, and some things for me to look into :-)
  7. Apologies if this is has been covered - I searched forum for "buying" and saw nothing. I'm currently using a trial of C4D and finding it much more userfriendly than Maya (although 3DSMax was also much more userfriendly, but somewhat overwhelming). In any case, C4D seems a good combination of power, and usability. The price is still pretty high however, esp for Studio which has some of the features I'd be interested in (mograph tools etc). So I've been browsing the buy\sell forum. Is there a suggested method for buying\selling on this (or any forum I guess). The posts I've seen just have somebody - in some cases, like me to be fair, with 0 post history - seems risky taking a chance and sending money off to them. Just looking for some general advice on buying in this way I guess. I don't believe Paypal cover purely digital transactions such as buying a licence key. The alternative is for me to wait for a decent discount on the software - either Siggraph from what I've read, or hope there is a repeat of last May's 30% off deal (which kept coming in searches when investigated possible discounts). Thanks in advance!
