Updates for new EU Data protection laws

The EU's new data protection and privacy law, General Data Protection Regulation, is coming into force soon, and we're making some updates to keep up with those. These are mainly aimed to reduce the amount of data we hold on our servers (we'll keep less data, and delete some data that isn't required anymore).

Read on to find out what changes we've made so far...

Grid Discontinuing

I'm very sad to announce that we'll be discontinuing Grid, and won't be selling any new licences for it. Thanks to everyone who supported it, your existing licences will still work with Cinema 4D R15-19, however Grid won't be updated to work with R20 or receive any other updates.

I've made this decision as Grid is a very big plugin and simply doesn't have enough users to justify the expense of maintaining it. We're announcing this now in the hope that we can give you plenty of time to make plans for any existing projects that use Grid prior to the next release of Cinema 4D.

We've reduced the price of subscriptions to reflect Grid no longer being supported, if you have an existing subscription your payments will be reduced automatically from your next billing cycle. Despite the reduction subscription users will still be able to use Grid with C4D R15-19, but it will be unsupported.

The Age Of Plugins: PolyEdge Spline

Here it is - the sad and inevitable end of The Age Of Plugins. It's not really that sad because it means we're releasing one last plugin - PolyEdge Spline. PolyEdge Spline is free for everyone, and it generates a spline object based on a polygon object's edge selection (kind of like using the 'Edge to Spline' command, but maintaining a live link between the spline and your object).

I've had a lot of fun during The Age Of Plugins, and I hope you have too! I also hope some of the plugins we've released help you make awesome stuff, please let me know if you've found them useful.

Here's a recap of all the other releases we made during The Age Of Plugins - we started with Shadow Falloff, then Cluster Effector, Velocity Effector and Snap Deformer.

That's it! We'll see you again soon.

The Age Of Plugins: Snap Deformer

The Age Of Plugins continues inexorably forwards with Snap Deformer, a new deformer plugin for Cinema 4D that snaps your objects' points to a custom grid.

The Age Of Plugins: Velocity Effector

There are still two months left in The Age Of Plugins, which means two more plugins still to be released! To recap, The Age Of Plugins has seen three new plugins released so far, including Velocity Effector - the other two are and Shadow Falloff and Cluster Effector.

Cinema 4D R19 compatibility

All our plugins are now working and supported with Cinema 4D R19! Some of them required minor updates to work, so you'll need to get the latest versions.

It's free to get updated Curious Animal plugin Activation Codes - just enter your email in our Updated Licence Form here and you'll get new codes via email.

When updating I recommend installing the Plugin Manager in your R19 plugins folder and letting it download the correct versions of the plugins, rather than copying them all from your old plugins folder. You can always find the latest version of the Plugin Manager here, and once it's installed you can find it in your Cinema 4D 'Plugins' menu.
