Wow, amazing upgrade. Now this looks “professional” plugin imo.
This make me think about that Maxon should now focus on improving speed of view port/object manager, multi-thread everything and add modelling tools (sculpting and basic modelling), and let the plugin creators do VFX tools. Maxon should also do better SDK for supporting plugin developers to use all C4D features without “hacks”, and maybe it would help plugin developers also if physics would have one engine for all.
And i think this only because of new upgrades for X-particle and DPit effex, because those tools will fill the “empty hole”/(most of missing features) in C4D.
This is good time: DPit effex upgrade, Great X-particle upgrade and C4D upgrade in the end of the year, three reasons to live =)
EDIT: And make C4D unlimited. It is bad mistake if plugins will be limited by C4D :S
