  1. So as the original post stated. Functionality is being removed for perpetual owners in a push to get subscriber money. The End.
  2. For the next few months yes. Then after that. No. As per the original post, I am concerned about not being able to re-access some scripts/addons in CV Tools that I consoider essential and should be part of the package. I'm not I that bothered about accessing the tutorials etc.
  3. I asked MAXON about this last week. Their answer is below. Basically Cineversity access is Subscruption only after the end of the year (as the MSA doesn't exist it cant be renewed). Shame. "Since Cineversity is tied to the MSA and MAXON's Cinema 4D Subscriptions, your Cineversity expired on the same date. However, due to the Covid situation, MAXON has decided to give Cineversity subscriptions to all users of Cinema 4D license holders until the end of the year."
  4. Normally you would use a layer shader with AO as a mask to make this sort of thing. (theres no curvature map with Corona unfortuantely.) But if you want to be really specific about the placement, then you'll need to UV unwrap and paint the textures yourself.
  5. Indeed. Blocking access to Cineversity for people with a valid licence is absolutely ridiculous. Taking simple functionally away from people will drive them to other DCCs, not subscriptions. Very sad
  6. I work in a team of one. So it's been a long while since I workd with other peoples files. But the susbscription debacle has got me thinking - what is the the state of backward compatibility these days? Specifically - if I started using a subscrition of s22/23/etc for a year or so but then cancelled my sub. Whould I then be able to open and edit the files that I'd made in s22/23 in R21 or R20? Naturally newer fancy features wouldn't work properly. But a standard sort of file with just a polymodel/camera/lights/mograph cloner for example should work fine? Or will it refuse to open?
  7. Actually I just got an email from my reseller " A. Sidegrade for users with an active MSA... ...Your active MSA does not give you free access to Cinema 4D S22. Therefore you need to turn your MSA to Subscription, which is the new way to be up-to-date with Cinema 4D. When sidegrading your MSA to Subscription you hand in your Perpetual R21. Doesn't look like you keep r21 perpetual to me! Confusion reigns - as it has done for the last year
  8. Why not just publish the information? Is it a secret?
  9. For irridecent effects you could try adding Fresnel shader with a coloured gradient into the reflection colour slot. THe last shot just looks like there s a bump/displacement map of narrow horizintal lines on the glass surface

    I wonder if you could use something from this technique as a starting point:
  11. Without a scene file or more information we have no idea what you're doing wrong. Consider attaching a (simplified) scene and someone will probably look at it
  12. God, i know i’m repeating what’s already been said elsewhere. But it’s really expensive. Actually I’d be happy to pay top-dollar if i thought i was getting the best Product out there. But when you consider that you really need to pay separately for a decent render engine and decent particle system ON TOP, you really have to ask if c4d is what you should spend your money on going forward. I will add myself to the growing line of non-upgraders this year. I would be interested in knowing the breakdown of individuals compared to companies buying licences though. Rea
  13. Corona is very good and is a CPU renderer. It's what I use as I work across different platforms. As the Macpro uses AMD technology rather than Nvidea you're going to be very limited in your GPU renderer options until Redshift supports metal
  14. While I havent specifically looked at your file. There is a brand new tutorial from Niko Schatz using toilet paper below. Take a look at thet first Tutorial Part 1: https://youtu.be/QqdSbPSyn1Y Tutorial Part 2: https://youtu.be/3qjx3iaV6Aw
