News: CINEMA 4D R20 Product Compatibility (Updated 24 September 2018)
News Sep 24, 2018 at 11:50 AM

With changes and updates to the software, many of your plug-ins may be compatible. We have put together a list of products and information to let you know what we know about compatibility. Please let us know if you have any information that should be included on this list. We will be updating it as new information is learned.

 
Updated: 24 September 2018 with news from Redshift, Greyscalegorilla, and CinemaPlugins.

Curious Animal Products

Most Curious Animal products will be compatible with R20. No plug-ins built for prior versions will work with R20, so copying plugins from your R19 or earlier plugins folders won't work for R20.

  1. Download the latest Plugin Manager, which includes R20 support.
  2. Then get your new plugin Activation Codes to work with R20 using our Updated License Form.
  3. Install the new Plugin Manager in your R20 plugins folder, start C4D, and open the Plugin Manager - it will take you through the process of activating and downloading the correct versions of Curious Animal plugins for R20.

“The main change for us is Fields - these are awesome! But they replace falloffs. We've updated most of our falloffs to work with R20 anyway to help you transition old projects - I say most because unfortunately Noise Falloff and Boole Falloff just don't work with R20, Super Source Falloff and our free falloffs are working. Fields pretty well cover all the features available in Fallofftopia so we won't be developing fields versions of these, although we still support them for R15-19. As I mentioned earlier Grid will not be supported for R20. There is also no R20 version of our free Falloff Sampler Shader.”

All other paid and free Curious Animal plugins are working now with R20.

Greyscalegorilla

All Greyscalegorilla plug-ins have a free update.

Signal was the last Greyscalegorilla plugin to be updated due to some existing limitations with R20. Here’s the fix.

Due to a temporary limitation in Cinema 4D R20, when a vector parameter is dragged onto Signal the SHIFT key needs to be held down. Otherwise only a single parameter will be driven, not all three.

MAXON estimates that the upcoming R20 build scheduled for early 2019 will fix this parameter issue, so until then you will need to use the SHIFT key when using vectors. We will make an announcement once the fix is applied.

The latest Signal, version 1.521, is now available in your Greyscalegorilla Account. You will also find all other R20 updates now available, including recent fixes to HDRI Link (Browser + Arnold patches) and new Light Kit Pro 3 installers.

If you are ready for updates, contact sales@toolfarm.com with your information.
