VectorWorks Exchange Plugin version 1 need for C4D XL8 for Mac.

I can’t seem to find it anywhere.

I wanted to import VW files into C4D for rendering.

Does anyone know where I can get it?

Is it still available?

Does anyone sell it?

Would appreciate if someone can contact me about it.

Thanks

I’m not aware that such a plugin exists for R8. If it exists it’s way outdated and will not work with current VW versions.

Hey thanks for the reply.

Actually, I’m not really concerned whether it’s outdated or not. As long as I can import it into Cinema 4D program I have.

It’s just that I had an old copy of Cinema 4D 8XL handed to me, so I decided to install it and try it out. It works on any old PowerMac and even the new Intel platform. Remarkably, the interface looks very similar to the new versions and still accepts older plug-ins out there.

So my real objective is to import Vectorworks drawings and render them in Cinema 4D. It doesn’t matter how old the thing is, as long as I can render 3d architectural floor plans.
I think the new version of Vectorworks is essentially VW plus the render engine of a “light” version of Cinema 4D thrown in. Other than some walkthrough or basic animation capabilities, I’m not really interested in all these advanced features. I just want a nice rendering engine that takes scaled plans and produces good output which exceeds the quality of the Renderworks engine inside VectorWorks.

Apparently, there was a plug-in that worked very well with version 7 and 8. It’s talked about in this website:

http://www.modsynergy.com/review60.htm

And here’s what it looked like:

The VectorWorks CD Plug-In. This includes textures, and some examples. VectorWorks is a CAD based program where you can design, and create real things. For example, when making cars, CAD is used to design and displaying lengths, etc. This is what VectorWorks does and will be covered in a different review…For now here are some examples of CAD created work.

And its compatibility is mentioned on a French Cinema 4D website. Roughly translated it states:

http://forum.cesyam.fr/viewtopic.php?t=108

VectorWorks eXchange R1
The plugin export functions with VectorWorks 9 et 10.
The plugin import functions with CINEMA 4D Release 7, Release 8 and Release 9.
That version is not available commercially anymore.

So if you or anyone else knows about it or where it can be found or purchased, I’d appreciate it.

Thanks very much

Hi Mr. Welter,

great plugins, have you some date release for cinema 12. I think it’s worth to commercialise your plugins !

Youre welcome.

However, there is a big bug: They wont load in mac os 10.5. Cant check for myself but i had some people report it. A fix is on the way.


#192

If you aren’t able to download the Viewfinder, you can also write an email to me
and I will attach the SV Viewfinder to the reply.

best regards,
Stefan

I think the issues with OS X 10.5 are fixed now.

Here is the new package

Since I could only find compiled R12 versions of the
AMa_ChamferMaker plugin for Windows, I decided to
update the plugin for R12 on the Mac.

You can find source and binary downloads at

Hey guys,

just wanted to add my own little plugin I’m currently working on, Grey Cloud. It’s a Python based plugin to generate a particle cloud from an image (sequence). Have a look and play around, would love to hear feedback.

Grey Cloud plugin for R12

I’ve also put up a sample of what to do with it here.

Cheers
Michael

xVBakerPro by Ryan Hussain
http://xvisionstudios.com/xvbaker/

The xVBaker Pro Plugin for Cinema 4D allows you to easily convert rigid body dynamic simulations into key-framed objects that can be exported for use with other 3D applications. Once objects are baked, they can exist totally independent of any dynamics tags in C4D. Baking eliminates the need to save out large cache data or re-simulate at render time. You can export a baked animation for use in previous versions of C4D or other programs such as Autodesk Maya.

-> Free Demo available and a Pro version for $20 USD.
