    xplosia and xpEmitter

    Have you given the emitter enough particles ?
  2. Ok the knowledge base confuses me about maintenance. My maintenance is as follows Xparticles - expired 24/11/2019 cycles - expires 24/04/2019 Would maintenance simply add 12 months to both, ie xp - 24/11/2020 and 24/04/2021 for cycles ? Secondly if i want to use team render do i need an extra cycles node - for cycles renders ? for instance 2 machines 1 extra node(inc original node), 3 machines, 2 eatra nodes?

    out of memory error

    What type of scene are you creating?
  4. if you are using an emitter - increase the birthrate.

    Cloth Holes

    also look at the documentation - click on the blue-green ? at the bottom left, also the video doc. The content repository annnnnnnnnd the training section in your account

    Cloth elasticity

    Either increase the iterations or enable the 2nd level constraints .. you may need to play with the settings to get it how you wish it to act

    attach geo to dynamic spline end

    if you create another point selection at the end of the spline, and then add an emiter to create one single particle you can then add objects. I'm currently in xpcache mode so i can't do an example file your

    Licese problem

    @Zoir reset the license in my accounts. I had this problem earlier. The frustrating thing is that you can't release it in c4d in the license manager because you get locked out.

    CyEnvironment is not showing HDR image

    My apologies, I misread what you had said. I have reproduced the same situation. Either its unintentional or its a bug Basically the cyEnvironment camera visibility has no effect if alpha channel is selected in the render settings.

    CyEnvironment is not showing HDR image

    just quickly redid your scene. Notice just like your scene i left materials off of the cubes - hence copying your own scene. There is nothing wrong with your setup - or cycles4d in this instance.

    CyEnvironment is not showing HDR image

    @fealmeida76 its nothing to do with the alpha channel - you didn't apply any material to the cube or disk. In you second example you did add a sphere and then added a cycles 4d material to it. The original scene was showing some of the hdri but the because the material is clay like, you can't see anything

    License seat issue

    resetting the license on the website resolves it. Interestingly xp whilst taking the same mac addy didn't get locked out!

    License seat issue

    Hi, i did email tech support which i felt didn't give me a proper answer. so I will post here. Cycles 4d seems to have taken the mac address of the "VirtualBox Host-Only Network" entry. Which seems fine till you realise it can change and you can't change it back. The computer had crashed either with c4d and Virtualbox running or just c4d or that i upgraded virtualbox with c4d running - i can't remember which. I asked if i should reset the license to clear the above. and i was told just " To reset your License, please log in to your Customer Account and each License will have a “reset” option. This feature will only be available if your maintenance is up to date. " which is an answer but a non answer. so will resetting the license kill the seat count usage ?

    Continuous Ripples

    Not sure what effect you are trying for - but have you tried xpwave ?

    XpTrail ?

    Increase the spline anchor points in "spline path", either in the spline settings or manually adding them. Or another route is to use flow field. Also this might of interest https://insydium.ltd/site/assets/files/1096/xp_cyc4d_traffic.zip
