    Count of Polygons

    Why can't I see the polygon count in the viewport even though that option is selected in the HUD panel? I can see grid spacing and perspective, but no polygon count.
  2. I now run both an nVidia Quadro 4000 and an nVidia Quadro 2000 in my Dell T3500 workstation. Unfortunately, newer rendering software does not support the drivers in these cards and no newer drivers are being written. Can anyone recommend a newer, more robust card (GTX 1080?) known work with the standard 500 power supply configuration of the T3500? A larger power supply for this computer does not seem to exist. Thanksl
  3. I'm running R19. When I load RealFlow for C4D v2.5.2.7500, C4D hangs on the plugins initialization part of the splash screen. Yet, RealFlow version v2.01.004 runs perfectly. Windows 10, R19, nVidea drivers all are up-to date. Anyone seen this problem. And yes, I have filed a trouble ticket with NextLimit support. Thanks, Dan Kuras Jackson, Michigan
  4. I am having a problem using GSG's HDRILINK plugin. The plug-in appears to partially work with the sample set of HDRI's that come with it. I purchased the entire GSG HDRI collection and installed it (several times) exactly as shown in the HDRILink install video. Yet, when I attempt to use it, only the sample HDRI's appear in its browser, and selecting any of them does nothing. I've exchanged several e-mails with GSG, but as yet none of their solutions seem to work. One difference I noted was that the sample HDRI's come in two folders: HDRIs and THUMBNAILS. All the other GSG HDRI's come in folders: EXR and JPG. This has been pointed out to GSG. I've tried renaming the EXR and JPG folders to HDRIs and Thumbnails. This will cause the HDRI's to appear in the browser, but produce an "asset error" if any are selected. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm running R19 on a 6-core Xeon processor under Windows 10 Pro. I have 24 GB of RAM and an nVidia Q4000 graphics card.
  5. I'm running C4D Studio R19 with nVidia quadro boards and Octane Render for C4D. When I purchased and installed the Road Trip HDRI collection from GSG, HDRIlink worked as advertised. I then purchased the entire GSG HDRI collection and installed all 8 folders. Now nothing works except for the sample collection that came with HDRIlink. Although all 8 folders appear in the dropdown selection box, no thumbnails are seen for any. I'm using latest versions of HDRIlink and the HDRI collection. These have been deleted and reloaded several times exactly following the video tutorial supplied with HDRIlink. GSG people have been very helpful in trying to track this down, but as yet have not solved it. Any Ideas? Any ideas?
  6. Thank you. I replaced the backup cell, then everything worked fine. SYSTEM DEVICES now shows both cards.
  7. I have a Dell T3500 workstation containing a 3.3GHz 6-Core Xeon processor running Windows 10, 24GB RAM, and 2TB harddisk. I currently use an nVidia Q4000 graphics card. I tried adding a Q2000 card from my old computer, but that caused a low-voltage alarm with the Dell's standard 525 W PS. I'm considering replacing the Q4000 with a GTX 1080. Does anyone else run the 1080 with a standard T3500 workstation?
  8. I have a new Windows 10 machine running a 3.3 GHz Xeon 6-core processor with 24 GB RAM and an nVidia Quadro 4000 graphics card. My old computer has a Quadro 2000 card. Can I add that Quadro 2000 to my new machine and take advantage of the added GPU power? Is any special hardware involved? Thanks
  9. I need to customize my desktop by installing a few plugin buttons via the Customization screen. Is there a way to force these buttons to appear in all layouts (Startup, Standard, Visualize, etc.) when they're setup in any one layout?

    renderman use

    I understand that Cineman (R18) can use the non-commercial version of Renderman 21. I have installed the Renderman 21 Server, but Cineman can't find it. Where do I enter the PRMAN.exe path into Cineman?
  11. I recently purchased and installed the subject product. Although it does work, I can't get the actual texture images to appear in the object browser as they do with other texture libraries. All I get is shown in the attached screenshot. The texture images reside in the "tex" folder, but the "PRESET" icons should show them. Any ideas? I'm on R18 Studio.

    Mouse Problems in R18

    MAXON support and I have exchanged lots of emails recently, but the problem still persists (on occasion, C4D will start up normally), If you google "C4D mouse problem", you'll find several references to this problem. I've tried all the proposed solution without success. And yes, I've replaced my mouse with a wireless mouse. I then reloaded R17 which worked flawlessly with Windows 10. Now it too has this problem though no plugins, no nothing was added. Problem does not occur in any of my other graphics programs. Per their request, I sent MAXON a screencast showing the problem. We await their reply. Thankfully I use C4D for a hobby and not as a business, so my livelihood is not at stake. I'm retired from a lifetime in electronic development, embedded systems programming, and IT support.
  13. I've seen a references to this problem on this problem here and in other forums, but no answer that works. In the viewport, my left, middle, and right clicks do not allow me to select anything or move, adjust, etc., any objects. All my clicks only adjust the camera. I'm running Windows 10 Pro with 8 GB RAM and a microsoft basic mouse. I've rolled back mouse drivers; I've downloaded latest mouse drivers from Microsoft. I twice uninstalled R18, manually cleaned out registry, rebooted, reloaded R18 but the problem persists. I reloaded R17, which never failed on WIN 10, but now fails with the same problem. I've checked OS integrity; scanned for viruses, scanned for other malware --- everything OK. If I download and install the complete Microsoft Basic Mouse application, C4D will work normally for 2 or 3 restarts, then fail again. What's really frustrating is that SolidWorks, Blender, RealFlow 2015, and Vue ALL RESPOND CORRECTLY TO THE MOUSE. And yes, I've tried all the fixes I could find on the net --- to no avail. Any ideas?
