  • New version of AniSplines available shortly.

    At this moment we are working on a new updated version of AniSplines.
    This commercial version will be available shortly.

    If you have any requests for this new version, please let us know.
    If it is a functionality we are going to implement, you will receive the new version for free!

    In the mean time, the current version of AniSplines is no longer available.

  • Toggle Visibility released

    Today we released a new plugin called Toggle Visibility.

    “Toggle Visibility” is a Cinema 4D Tag plugin tool that will speed up your modelling and render process.

    It gives you tools to set / toggle “Visible in Editor” and “Visible in Renderer” with just one mouse click. No need to specify two keyframes (one for Editor and one for Renderer) to put visibility On and two keyframes to put visibility Off.
    Together with the optimized user interface your workflow will benefit extremely.

     

     

    And you can do this for not just one object, but a list of objects if needed.

    If the host object visibility is toggle, the visibility of all objects in the In_Exclude list will follow!
    We also release released a demo version of Toggle Visibility.
    The Toggle Visibility Demo version has the following restrictions:

    • Tag data will not be saved or loaded when opening or closing the scene.
    • Visibility set by the Toggle Visibility Demo Tag will have no impact on rendering.
    • The function “Convert Switch frame to Keyframes” is not supported.

    For a short introduction, have a look at this video:  Toggle Visibility – Short introduction.

    Note: This plugin is the first plugin under the new support arrangement.
    We have changed our policy. Instead of the license check, we now offer a one year support and do not ask for your Cinema 4D serial anymore.
