R12 plugin round-up

It has been said that all plugins need to be alot of work to be ready for R12 (which of course is worrisome as some of our best plugs come from busy solo devs), and I was wondering about my favs (as well as plugs I'm considering buying). Here are the plugs I was wondering about - anybody chat with these devs about R12 versions? Maybe you devs can chime in if you have any release news? Also, should all Coffee plugs still work in R12?

Z-Blur (and other Biomekk plugs)
Paint on Surface
Align to Vector (defcon-X)
Xplode
Thrausi
Degamma (I know LWF Is built in now, but I like the options/presets in DeGamma)
XFrog
Dpit
KyamaSlide
Michael Welter's various plugins
Vray (does this need a big re-write like other plugs?)
PathDeformer (Renato)
Drive!
Add-the-Sea
Remotion plugs
Vue xStream connection
Realflow
Other plugs I didn't mention

Blackstar's plugs are already R12 (Reference Shader, Splurf, etc)

Quite a few COFFEE based plugs work fine in R12, including SoloButton and Chestnuts.
Not all though, amongst other things a bug was fixed with COFFEE that means it's properly case sensitive now so scripts that weren't won't work now until fixed up.

I'd love to see KyamaSlide fixed, really handy plugin for tweaking loops on character meshes : )
Copy paste polys is another really handy one.

Cheers,
Brian

Yes, Vray needs to be re-written in order to work with R12 and this will take some time acording to the devs over at the Vrayforc4d-forums. I've read that they are working for some time now on the Vray-for-R12-Version, since Maxon provided Beta Versions, but a lot of functions are still not working at the moment. No timeframe has been provided yet though.

My list:

fusionThing - Steve is working on this one (For all you who do not know, this plugin has ways of putting clones together that Mograph does not do, it welds the child objects together, you can define exactly how the child objects are propagated (By edge, a particular face or side, etc), it also has a great recursive function.

EnhanceC4D
StormTracer
TransulcentPro
CellularShader (Welter Plugins)
Maxwell Render
AdvancedAtomArray
MeshDeformer
NoiseDeformer (Welter Plugins)
PhotoMatch
Reeper
Rockgen

I've heard from at least one user that my MDD-I/O plugin no longer works. It's been discontinued and I really have no plans to upgrade to C4D 12 given Maxon's new price structure.

A handy little workflow plugin that I really like is 'Deformation' by xs_yann(c) 2007.
It's a plugin that creates deformers to fit and orient with the currently selected object.

This is COFFEE based, but didn't work in R12. I opened the .cof file up though and managed to fix it by changing a few lines and commenting out any references to Bone objects (since they no longer exist in R12).

So here's a fixed version, hoping it's ok to post as it was free originally, all credit to the original coder.

Cheers,
Brian

Nice to know. I like this plugin.

Regarding DPIT Effex: Samir sent out an email stating that he is working on it.

Also (adding to list):

Lennart mentioned the other day that SteadyCamPro was in the works for R12, there were some issues that needed sorting out though.

The other one I've grown quite attached to is AIT from totalemersionstudios, hoping that will find its way onto R12 too. And Thrausi, but mike already mentioned these.

Should mention that I wouldn't object to paying upgrade fees for any of these, it's understandable if there's a few days work in re-coding for the new version that there should be some incentive for the developer, especially smaller niche products.

^ That reminds me of Harvester too from TotalEmersion. I use it all the time in 11.5.

And of course Cactus Dans character plugins, and Symmetry and Transfer tools.
I'd say these will take a lot of work as the coordinate system in Cinema is now changed a lot with the introduction of Freeze Transforms, but if anyone can handle that, it's Dan

Not sure how many people out there use my plugins, but it looks like a lot of them are not going to work in R12 until I purchase the upgrade and recompile - which will probably not happen for several months, if at all (I may skip this update unless a client requires it).

Sorry, folks.

So far, all of my free plugins have been rebuilt/tested and are available for Cinema 4D R12, Windows/MacOS, 32/64-bit. Will be working on the three commercial plugins over the next weeks.

Thanks!

Just tried your Batch Rename Objects plug in R12 and it works fine.


Great to see the Kuroyume plugs ported, many thanks.

Hi all,

I received a reply from Per-Anders on the Storm Tracer forum that it would be updated for R12.
