C4D V14.025 broke something in Render Elements, causing the app to hang on startup on the mac. I have recompiled the plugin using the R14 SDK as a base, just for the mac (no new features, just a recompile). As far as I know V0.7.14 should be working ok on PCs, but if not I will work on getting a PC compile of it going.
You can download the mac update here.
There’s an issue with the latest R14 update and Render Elements. It is related to some stuff apple did that affected some builds of C4D. I am aware of the problem and will do my best to fix it within the next few weeks. Should just be a re-compile, but my understanding is that there is some additional setup work that needs to be done with the new version of C4D. Boring technical details, blah, blah, blah. Will update when I have progress to report.
Should be fixed, here: https://adamswaab.wordpress.com/2012/10/16/render-elements-v0-7-15-r14-only/
I am thrilled to announce my first tutorial produced for CMIVFX! Here is a brief summary:
Houdini is not just for visual effects. With the availability of Houdini for all platforms and the variety of training materials now available, Houdini is making headway into the world of motion graphics. The procedural nature of Houdini, combined with its powerful dynamics system, make Houdini an important player in visualizing data and allowing graphic artists to express themselves in new and powerful ways. In this tutorial series we are going to look at a current design trend – data connections – and build a procedural system in Houdini to accomplish this task while harnessing all the additional benefits Houdini has to offer. We’ll learn how to draw connections between relational points of data (in this case, by proximity), create text readouts of the data, and combine this system with Houdini’s dynamics network. At the end of the tutorial, the viewer will know how to create a reusable digital asset to handle this effect, and hopefully learn a few new tricks along the way!
Mac version of the fix can be downloaded by clicking here. PC version will come shortly and I will post it on this thread.
PC version is now included in the download here.
I hope this fixes the problem. Big thanks to Wilfried Behne of Maxon and Franz at plugincafe for the help tracking this bug down.
