How do I resolve this error? The link to "open Licensing Server" on this modal doesn't do anything. And I've didn't see anything in the Helpdesk when I searched this title.

Have we talked about how, since Chaos, the way Help works from the Corona menu is virtually unusable.
I am keen to learn from the documentation how to use this amazing tooling can't work out why it's all hidden now behind login > jump to a browser page > a nav that has nothing to do with help docs > sod it, I'll just close the help and ask on Twitter.

[C4D] General Discussion / S26 + Corona
« on: 2022-04-24, 10:02:46 »
I keep hearing that S26 doesn’t break any plugins. Does that mean that Corona should work? Because I’ve installed it and don’t have Corona in this version.

[C4D] Bug Reporting / V8. Issues with Cosmos Browser
« on: 2022-04-15, 23:07:54 »
Trying to use the Cosmos assets. Signed in OK. Went to download an HDRI. File reached 90% then stalled (5mins). Then all other assets I tried to DL also failed. Relaunched C4D and now Assts browser is empty.
Specs S24 and S25. Mac 12.3. M1.
Any advice on troubleshooting?

[C4D] Bug Reporting / V7 but with Comic Sans?
« on: 2022-04-01, 10:48:15 »
A bug or perhaps a feature? Whatever it is I've just noticed my Interactive Render window is pretty casual today and the UI font is not what it was before.
R25. Not taking itself too seriously it seems.

[C4D] I need help! / Help outputting for compositing
« on: 2022-03-23, 06:16:16 »
Hi — I've never had to render anything out that needed any post effects in AE, until now.
I have a scene with a tree in the middle-ground. I'd like to be able to add something behind the tree in AE but in from of the background. What are my options specifically for Corona, or will it be exactly the same as if I was doing it in Standard renderer in C4D? (which I also have't done but I'm sure I could google it)

I just installed the Chaos browser update —now any time I use the search field it crashes C4D
Mac 10.15.7

Hard to pinpoint exactly what it is but I think I'm going to have to uninstall v8 RC1. The IR stalls forcing C4d to crash, sometimes, the render region marque stops showing.
(I'm using a Forester multi cloner but even dropping the clone count and hiding everything else in the scene it's not playing nicely – switching on/ off elements I the MultiCloner crashes it too)

[C4D] Bug Reporting / Tone mapping not working v8 RC
« on: 2022-03-16, 01:01:10 »
Hi. I'm noticing that the tone mapping isn't working in two ways:
1. changing the value doesn't change the output image.
2. the fields don't accept keyboard input.

[C4D] I need help! / New Licence server question
« on: 2022-03-15, 20:48:35 »
I'm having problems activating the new v8 build as I'm getting an error that there are no licences n the license server.
Opening the Licence Server link takes me to the browser with a… fixed to my work gmail address, and not my personal one (that I have my sub for Corona linked to). How the heck can I change that/log out of the gmail/log in with the account details linked to my subscription? It's incredibly confusing.

[C4D] I need help! / Can I use the multi shader on clones?
« on: 2022-02-28, 08:11:44 »
Can I use the multi shader on clones? I have a simple roof tile setup and would like to add a small amount of colour and displacement variation. I thought perhaps the multi shader would do the trick but I can't find the right combination of settings. Maybe I need to make instances of the roof tiles instead... It just seems lots more work.
I'm using Corona v7 and R24 — Thanks

[C4D] I need help! / workflow for layers for compositing
« on: 2022-02-15, 23:37:54 »
I've realised that I don't really have an efficient process when it comes to rendering for compositing. I'd like to change that. What I tend to do is render my scene and then render it again with the background with a shadow catcher. Then I use the shadow catcher as a mask to isolate the subject in Photoshop. But this means I have to render everything twice and I've a hunch this isn't the way you all do it. Can anyone share a better process with me.

Can someone shed some light (pun intended… I think) on how to achieve the plastic look in this image. Specifically it's the way the light refracts into the colours (on the flat area, and also on the left side.) Thanks!

[C4D] I need help! / Volumetric's like I'm 5
« on: 2021-12-23, 06:52:03 »
I'd appreciate a little help understanding the volumetrics. I've read the CommonPoint posts ( which made lots of sense while I was reading it, but when trying to apply fog to any of my scenes I keep failing.
I thought I'd set up a super basic scene so I could try to understand how the Absorption and Emissions relate. But I still can't work it out. I just keep pumping in random numbers and crossing my fingers.
What I want to achieve is the ability to make my scenes have foggy atmosphere so I can then play with god rays and stuff, but if I can't understand volumentrics I'm never going to get that working!
Thanks in advance.
