View Full Version : convert data from v4 to v8 ?

Can anybody tell me how to convert Cinema4D scenes from version 4 to version 8 ?
Ive tried the simple way, but only the material was loaded correctly ... the scene was shown as only one object with zero points :cry:

no idea about this...but i'd try and get hold of version 5/6 which has been knocking around on some magazines as a freebie..then open the scene up and resave it..then try opening up in 8... maxons support.

Don't have an answer, but just wanted to add my sympathy.

I had to update about 20 graduate thesis projects done in early Director versions up to 9. Had to have 3 versions of Director installed on the computer I was using!

Cheers and good luck,
