My new updates aren’t showing up in the Greyscalegorilla HUB. Help!

If your new materials, plugins or other tools aren’t showing up for download try this first:

  1. Open the Greyscalegorilla HUB.
  2. Click “Help/Check For Updates”
  3. Your updates and new downloads should show up in your HUB.

Can I still use these Plugins and Materials if I cancel my membership?

Any previously created scene file or render, made while you were an active Plus member, is still available for you to use, alter, and re-render. However, you cannot use those assets in any new scene files.

If you choose to cancel your Plus membership, you lose your license and ability to use any Assets or Plugins in any new projects. 

  1. You will lose access to all Materials, Plugins, Assets, and Training available in Plus.
  2. You will lose access to the Plus Library and forgo your license to use any new materials or assets in new projects.

You need an active subscription to continue using your Plus tools.

As long as you are an active Greyscalegorilla Plus license holder, you have full access to use all included Plus assets in your Commercial work. We created these Plugins and Assets specifically to use in commercial work

Check out our Plus Licensing FAQ for a breakdown of Plus. You can read the full license agreement here

If you have any questions about your Plus license, please contact support.


Are the plugins included with Plus compatible with Team Render and Command Line Rendering?

The plugins now run without any licensing requirements for Team Render Clients, as well as when run via the Command Line (for render farms). However, we require that networks with 5 or more render clients have an annual Plus account. This means that monthly Plus subscribers may use up to 5 render nodes at once.

This requires that you’ve updated the HUB to v1.113 or higher, and the plugins must be at v1.010 or higher.

To install plugins in your clients using C4D R21 and up: 

  1. Make a plugin folder, copy the plugins from your Greyscalegorilla folder into it.
  2. Copy the HUB plugin folder into this folder as well. 
  3. From the C4D Client, go to the preferences and set the Plugins path to the plugin folder you created. Team Render→File→Preferences→Plugins→Search Path.
  4. Restart the client.

Success!

You can now use the Plus plugins with that render client or for command-line rendering.

To install plugins in your clients using C4D R20: 

To get the plugins working on C4D R20, you just need to make sure the plugins are referenced somewhere by C4D: Either in the plugins folder of C4D’s preferences or in the plugin folder in the application directory.
