Hello everyone!

We integrate with Cinema Node-based GUI for materials and shaders in CentiLeo 0.59 release!
It works for Cinema R21.115 and newer versions.
Maxon Cinema has very cool Nodes engine which we are happy to integrate with! It's a lot more powerfull than Slate editor in Max.

Currently there is no yet converter from old CentiLeo materials to new Node-based.
Note that in these new nodes we have organized materials a bit differently:
1) Emission is moved from CentiLeo Material to a separate own material
2) Displacement is also moved to the root Output Material.

Download here: http://centileo.com/download/

Attention! Must Upgrade to:
- Latest NVIDIA Display Drivers: Game Ready Driver 441.87 or Studio Driver 441.66 (slightly faster).
- Minimum Cinema R21 build is 115

Change Log: cntlc4d 0.593 alpha (2020 May 29)
- up to 2x less noise for some HDR images in interiors
- more stable noise structure for low sample count
- Cinema S22 support (for S22.016+ builds)
- Fixed const color profile interpretation of materials

Change Log: cntlc4d 0.592 alpha (2020 May 12) - currently for all R16-R21
- Fixed broken Absorption property
- Fixed bug for lost frames during animation rendering in PV
- Fixed bug with wrong geometry translation when IPR doesn’t account for some deformers (such as Surface Deformer and few others)
- Fixed few bugs which caused some crashes.

Change Log: cntlc4d 0.591 alpha (2020 April 08) - currently for R21 only
[core] Fixed broken Absorption property
[cntlc4d] Fixed bug for lost frames during animation rendering in PV
[cntlc4d] Fixed bug with wrong geometry translation when IPR doesn’t account for some deformers (such as Surface Deformer and few others)
[cntlc4d] Fixed few bugs which caused some crashes.

Change Log: cntlc4d 0.590 alpha (2020 February 24)
[cntlc4d] Native C4D Node-based GUI for CentiLeo shaders and materials! Only for Cinema 4D R21.115+.

Known issues to be solved (temporarily broken features)
- Dirt shader;
- Absorption property of material;
- Directional/infinite light source;
- Adaptive noise-based image rendering (where pixels are no longer rendered when specified noise level is reached).
- May not initialize if AMD GPU is in your computer together with NVIDIA GPU.
- Very limited material converter tool (diffuse color + texture of C4D material).

Please, test it on you setup and share your renders!
Best regards,
Kirill

Hi Aimar, this is not a complex node, it's an ordinary one. So under some conditions this node was crashing? I am interested to know some conditions: what nvidia control panel settings, driver version, what GPU, what Cinema 4d build version (115 or 207)? Everything.
However, the bug may happen not on CentiLeo side, but on Cinema node side which is still not yet very stable (without CentiLeo).

ok

i test both more .

ok
its Cinema 4d build version 21. 207 crash

gpu 1070

last studio driver

look like nvidia control panel settings doesn't matter

I have similar setup. Please, can you send me this scene and tell what to do to cause the crash? Does it always happen or randomly?
 
c4d crash randomly not CentiLeo

Still not getting any crashes at this model. However, there are no textures there. Can you send them too pls? Eg. a link to email info@centileo.com

What operations were you doing before hang appeared? E.g. did you have opened IPR? Did you have enabled "Auto scene reload"?

yes in these scenes IPR is open .

right now everything works perfect in these scenes .

but i think it's c4d crashing random like that .

I got several crashes while I was developing node editor integration for CentiLeo. Everything was done with Cinema SDK rules. Not too many places to make own bugs. When things were done for 0.58 the crashes during node editing work have ended.

But currently I still get random crashes when modeling (applying boolean operations, deformers, generators, bevels, etc.) while working in IPR with enabled scene auto-reload (IPR button with circle arrows and "auto" label). Will investigate further of course and fix other bugs too.

Hi vblackrender.,
At the moment I am working on improving HDR sampling with that your scene. Describe it in your topic.
