View Full Version : Not saving radiosity solution

04 April 2006, 09:53 PM
Hi folks.

Seems I have a problem with a scene here.
C4D doesn't save the radiosity solution. I have checked the box 'Save solution', but nothing happens. When I try to copy-paste the scene into another document it renders and saves the solution inside 'illum'-folder in the Maxon program folder, but when I then save that file, and check 'Save solution', it doesn't save it. Any ideas?

It worked before..

cool.. a monologue :)

Found the problem. It seems to me that Cinema 4D doesn't support more than 32+3 characters filenames in total, and seeing that my file was 24+3, and the GI file adds another 9 or so characters, it couldn't be saved.

Why didn't I think of it before..
QuarkXpress had the same trouble, and that bothered me for days.. :)
