This plugin is officially dead.
Maxon released a “take system” that finally provides proper implementation of scene states. Only took them about 10 years from when I personally showed them my plugin and told them they need something like it in their package 😉
Anyway, I haven’t used it, but from what I see, it looks like they did a fantastic job.
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/
