Hello,

I´m with a big trouble... and can´t work and Next Limit can´t help me... i already send a mail... but no lucky.

I installed C4D 10 and maxwell 1.7 on my new Mac pro 8-core.

The Mxcl open normally and studio also works ok.

but C4D don´t open if the maxwell plugin is inside plugin folder... if i delete the plugin it opens normally.

Now i just can´t work!!!!

I have snow leopard installed but i also tried on my imac with snow leopard and works... i just don´t understand... and know what to do

Maybe is an issue about 64bit mac pro... i don´t know

PLEASE HELP!!!!

many thanks
best regards

Well, I don't have R10, so I was not sure whether it was 64bit-capable; if the 'Open in 32-bit mode' checkbox is not present then it isn't. You should not run it under Rosetta, even though it can. Unfortunately, I only have R9.6, R11, and R11.5 for OSX, and the plugin is working fine under all of those on Leopard. So I can't personally confirm whether there's a problem with R10 on Snow Leopard.

So what does it mean when you say: "C4D don´t open if the maxwell plugin is inside plugin folder"

- does it crash?
- does it hang?
- have you looked at Cinema in Activity Monitor while it is loading with the plugin? What do you see?
- what does the Cinema splash screen say as it is loading?

It hangs... shows the cinema 4D logo square and i can see loading all cinema 4D parts and stops when says loading maxwell plugin... and must do force quit or else it stays there

Well, it shows CPU @ 100%, so maybe it's working on something. I would try deleting your Cinema preferences folder to see if that helps. If not, use Activity Monitor > Sample Process on the Cinema 4D process, and then email the info it gives you to me at ( jeremy at nextlimit dot com ) and I'll see if there is anything meaningful in the report.

Unfortunately, that doesn't tell me much. Here's what I find odd:

1. you say it works fine on your other mac
2. you say both the v1 and v2 plugins have this problem

Am I understanding this correctly?

Since I am unaware of any known issues here, and because it is strange that two different plugins are causing the same issue, and only on one machine, what I would probably do is:

1. as I said above, delete your cinema preferences. If that does not help then...
2. make sure that there are no old versions of things in the trash. If that also does not help...
3. repair disk permissions. If that still does not help...
4. uninstall maxwell and cinema completely and empty the trash. Reboot. Reinstall the applications. Reboot.

I've done everything you told me to try to do to solve the problem... and nothing still the same.

1. deleted cinema preferences.
2. make sure that there are no old versions of things in the trash
3. repair disk permissions
4. uninstall maxwell and cinema completely and empty the trash. Reboot. Reinstall the applications. Reboot

I ordered yesterday maxwell 2 in hope to solve the problem... and also the same...

With my new machine that i bought just to render... and the maxwell don´t work in cinema 4D...

I don´t what to do i have a work to do...

Are both of these things true?

1. the plugin works fine on your other mac which is running snow leopard
2. on your new machine, both the v1 and v2 plugins show this problem

Was Snow Leopard installed clean on this machine, or was it done by upgrading a Leopard install?
