Fully working plugin for C4D

Hi guys,
I am not getting an answer here (viewtopic.php?f=170&t=45633) so let me ask as general topic:

When do you plan to make Fire fully interactive so there is no need to re-export the whole scene when any of the objects are transformed?
Also would be good to get fire updated every time textures are changes or hdr light texture is modified. With current not fully working fire, plugins like HDR Light Studio are not working properly.

Thanks,
Mac

Plugin developer is centered now on Rhino new version, wich is almost ready to go. After that it will have time to improve C4D one.

Great!
Do you know how long it might take?

Hello Mac,

Do you have any idea of when this was working as you expect? I have tested a MW4 version of the plugin (4.1.9 from 30 Nov 2017) and it was not updating on geometry movement.
In any case, we'll try to see how to fix this.

Best,
Fernando

Hello,
This is first time I was trying to use Maxwell in C4D but Christian from this post viewtopic.php?f=170&t=45633 suggests it was working better in the past.

It’s a shame because I paid almost 400€ for an upgrade from the studio and I still can’t use it :( also I paid preorder so I didn’t know it’s not working as it should. Victor asked for trust here viewtopic.php?f=1&t=45473 but at this point it’s few months after and I still can’t use it in C4D. Would be fair to offer all C4D users studio for free until this issue is solved. Otherwise it’s hard to trust :( and it’s sad cos it’s a best quality engine out there

We hope to have a good Rhino version this September, and start working on Cinema4d.

But if you need something because this inconvenience is making hard for you to work with Cinema4d, please write to sales@nextlimit.com, they use to help in these cases.

Hello,

Sadly, the code of the interactive implementation is ancient and requires to be rebuilt in order to make it more interactive. It's not a quick thing, but we will try to address it as soon as possible. As Luis says, currently, the plugin for Rhino is a higher priority as there are still some important missing features left to be added.

Best,
Fernando

When you will be working on it please try to keep an support for R21. Not everyone went for R22 and R23 because of subscription.
Also UDIM support is missing for C4D.
Thanks!
