Looks VERY promissing. It works perfectly in the viewport, but the only thing is I canīt make it work while rendering.What is actually the rBoole tag for?

The tag is just for visual feedback in the viewport. It's a preview tag that does nothing at render time. rBoole is actually an Alpha channel shader. That's where you set it up.

well, if your using c4d, you already are. cut him some slack, hes a dev, not a designer

Just to reiterate - there is some very clever stuff on that site. Wouldn't want my comments in any way to detract from that.

You possibly didn't have the shader in the materials alpha channel. As of v0.24 the shader is optional (gives more control). The rBoole object will be handled at render time automatically. The rBoole tag also has an Auto option so you don't even need to tell it which objects to boolean, it will just boolean any objects intersecting the object/s with the rBoole tag.

A question that sometimes drives me hazy, am I or are the others crazy?

The examples crash my Cinema4D :-(

Sorry to hear about the crashing, possibly it is fixed in the latest version/s. As for the logic within the shader, there is now some documentation available which may help.

The 'Contact' page on your site isn't working. I didn't get a link to the latest release.

Thanks, I've found the problem and fixed it. You should have had an e-mail (to a yahoo address), it was sent on the 17th at 9:10. I've sent it again, it contains the info and link.

This looks like a really exciting plugin. Will it be possible to have this just effect the visibility to camera but all lighting and GI remains the same. Best example I can think of is creating a section through a house that doesnt just cut a hole in the side of it and let all the sun in but respects the windows and designed openings in the house? If that makes sense!.....

the beveling would be a great addition. will this work with vray too?

This is a fantastic plug-in. But the &/or thing and on/off bubble icons are not easy to understand. With the Auto Mode, are these really needed any more?

It's not as elegant and intuitive as the rest of C4D. Maybe this is just me, but I'd love it if it had the same workflow as the normal Boole object (place objects under the rBoole object, select subtract, add, intersect, etc). Maybe a streamlined "Easy Mode"? Like Sketch & Toon, have Intermediate and Advanced options become available if a user needs them.

When using the rBoole object you don't need to do anything else, it is just like using the C4D boolean but without harming your polygons, eating memory and killing your viewport. You don't need to use the shader, it may even become redundant. Try out the object and tag and ignore the shader. The shader is just where this started (and still has a little more control for now), it is still an alpha whilst we try out improvement and workflow
