This mean that you shouldn't try to use plugin id/pass pairs since this time. Also this system choose one of your licenses if you have many.

If you have C4D startup hangups try to delete these files.

CUDA requirements

Due to a CUDA compiler bug we had switch to CUDA 7.5, which means on Windows and Linux you may need to update your NVIDIA graphics driver to a current version which supports at least CUDA 7.5. On Mac OSX you may have to update the CUDA driver for Mac to a current version supporting at least CUDA 7.5.

BUG REPORTS
I'll be happy, if anyone can be specific on their bug reports.
I need to know that your plugin version/Os/HW and last operations before crashes to reproduce and investigate the same problem.
And please attach a SCENE and BUGREPORT.ZIP.
Please post your reports in topic of version which is related or use bugreports section of this forum
Thanks for contributions

Yes Beta2 is latest. I wrote some changes. Also you know it's two part. Plugin side with lot of codes which create, convert and translates scene to renderer and renderer side which makes render.
It contains beta sdk with all fixes from renderer side. Also each plugin version has big or small changes, fixes, improvements. Mostly i don't write small fixes or revisions because they are too much and takes time. I barely finished a build and gone out of office.

does this mean TFD volumes can have their own motion blur now? do you have an example of how to set that up? or documentation on it?

Hello,

Nice feature with the random colored trails. Just a quick question:
In your xp-trail3.c4d you render the particles in tandem with the trails, both using a random function to pick a color from a gradient. Is there a way to synchronize the two? So that the tip particle has the same color with the trail.

Thanks,
Bogdan

I just wanna say thanks Ahmet!

There are a lot of additions which I personally lobbied for (over-under stereo rendering, Mix icon in mix material, XP improvements)
And the IPR feels so much more responsive and fast!

keep rocking!

In my sample, xp trails works as hairs via object tag. Gets the color with help of their uv coordinates. But spheres are render instances and no way to sync the colors by user. Just possible to use random texture over there. Another possible way to use mograph colors on non-render instances. But soon Otoy will bring a way to create custom texture for render instances. Waiting.....
