A new version of the Applink for Cinema4D R13 available. Only for Windows 32/64.

Added two features for Exporter:

- checkbox "Skip Import Dialog" (allows to skip 3D-Coat import dialog, default options will be used);

- checkbox "Skip Export Dialog" (allows to skip 3D-Coat export dialog. Previous settings will be used);

Have a nice day.

I'm playing with the v4 demo and I am also running cinema 4d r14. I installed the latest applink from this thread but when I then click the Export to 3D Coat button and then go into 3d coat, nothing shows up. In the script console in c4d I don't see any errors. Has anyone else gotten this applink to work with 3d coat 4 and c4d 14? Thanks.

Try to change the path for preferences to 3DCoat-V4.

Thanks for the help. I'm not sure if that did it or if it was the fact that I might not have actually had the mesh selected before hitting export... lol. I updated my prefs and tried to export again but nothing. Then I realized I didn't have the mesh selected. Anyway, now it's importing but the applink video for c4d doesn't show dropping a voxel object, only pixel painting and I'm getting some odd results. Please see this video to see what I'm running into. Notice that each side of the cube has these lines that don't exist on the original cube and around the edges it looks like they're doubled. Why is this happening? Thanks.

gswartz, it`is a normal work of 3DC with voxel modeling, not a bug of applink.

So you're saying that when I bring a model into 3d coat that I'll get artifacts on it that I then have to try and get rid of?

I tried the same thing with the applink and got a warning about the size so I chose automapping and got this:

I used C4D 11.5.

It is not plugin problem. Once I seen such problem for one user, but I never was able to reproduce it. Try to turn CUDA off in voxels menu and try again.

I tried turning off CUDA but still it comes through with the artifacts.

I was hoping that the C4d applink would help speed up my dev time but I just get an error when I try to run it. See pic.

 

It doesn't look like there is a preference.ini file at that location. I tried re-installing it but I just get the same.

 

Any ideas?

move your c4d install to a folder outside of program files.

 

i have in e:\soft\cinema4d.

 

unless you run it as admin programs ussually have strict rules about writing stuff into the program files folder.

 

but unfortunately in my experience the applink isn't very reliable. It seems to work once per launch. And that's it. If i want to move stuff back and forward it doesnt seem to like doing that.

 

but i need to experiment more and make a video about my problems..

You don't need to do anything as drastic as move your Cinema 4D program folder.

Cinema 4D has 2 possible locations for plugin install : In the program files 'plugins' folder & in the user's 'plugins' folder.

 

Just open Cinema 4D's preferences from Edit > Preferences.

In the bottom left of the window is a button that says 'Open preferences folder'. I like to create a desktop shortcut to this folder.

Move the App-link folder into the 'Plugins' folder you find here. Then you won't have problems any more.

In general, you should always try to install your plugins here not in the programs folder, unless you're specifically instructed otherwise.

 

I think it's a bit silly the App-link installer defaults to the plugins folder, knowing that most modern operating systems restrict permissions on this folder.

Anyway, I must say the App-link is very nice otherwise, thanks to the coder for the work they put in, & the R15 support.
