Any plan or interest at all in compiling a mac version?

Hy FantaBurky,

I will send out a new version shortly. I made a small fix, so it does not crash with SPD (SPD is not yet supported, so for SPD one needs to use the Displacer in emulation mode).

On my homepage, if you click on "Cine-Tools" in the small menu in the header, the following message appears:

Quote: The "tools" will be shipped by email, as soon as the transaction is approved. Please make sure to choose the correct item and allow several business days for processing your request. The "tools" will be shipped fully functional and without the need for a key, so no refunds are possible after they where shipped. The tools are protected by personalization.

I will see, that this is always visible (kind of hidden right now). The delivery is not automatic, so it usually takes a short while, until I can send the plugins out.

looks good
One never knows what each day is going to bring. The important thing is to be open and ready for it.

this looks like a nice alternative to ambient occlusion! I am for a mac version too.

Mac protection software

Hy there,

I am looking for a solid protection solution for the Mac ... but I can't find anything. Are there any Mac users here, that could enlighten me with some links or names of solutions?

Please only send me these links by PM. This is a first step of minor obfuscation

What I am looking for, is a software, that can do the following for a Mac dynamic-library (dylib):
- Watermarks (public and hidden-encrypted/integrity checked)
- Virtualization of code-segments (best is a publicly unknown compiler)
- Run-Time integrity checks
- Anti-Dump techniques
- String-Protection
- API to integrate the solution (like string-protection) into the compile, so protection is done "after the compile"

The tool needs to be able, to run from commandline and must only work on the dylib.

Thank you,

Thank you for the quick response, very pleased with the results and speed of calculation.
I'm impressed with how easily I can dirty up my materials now, choosing the kind of angles I need with little effort vs the trial and error of re-working the dirt shader parameters in vray.

Left side looks like I spent significantly more time painting textures. Right is a dead giveaway that I used just standard ao/dirt.

Another quick example, this time of an oxidized metal or a burnt chrome look.
Complex multi-layered material, with the masking of channels made much easier with the shader. Not perfect, but an enjoyable experiment nonetheless.
