not possible. annoys me, too.

huh? verbose?

of course not. only settings that are supported by cindigo can be imported. but: im working on a new material helper that will support a bit more stuff (maybe even shaders).

Hi fused,

I think I nailed it down to Extrude NURBS.
At least if I have a test scene with only a extrude with a text spline in the scene and try to export to indigo, Cinema crashes.

There were no problems with cinemas instances - does Cindigo convert them to indigo instances ? If not it would be a real time saver (Please).
No problems with instances under symmetry.

Shouldn't Cindigo convert extrudes and such stuff when exporting ?

You're welcome.

I just found another combination that causes a crash:
The hierarchy
symmetry -> array -> (object + instance) works

but the hierarchy
array -> symmetry -> (object + instance) crashes C4D

I also tested the R11 demo with the heavy scene from the beginning and it crashed, too - even more fiercly without any error message, but it seems to have converted more meshes.

Verbose is the new indigo 1.1.17 paramater

As for the shader, it's just text, if one would allow to import materials just as includes instead of interpreting them we would be able to import them all

I have the "convert palette" function in a palette so I can access it faster, the main problem is that now cindigo doesn't convert materials from it, only when selected from the menu. :(

youll have to delete the palette and create a new one. there were some changes to the converter and obviously this broke backwards compatibilty.

Hi matze, i think r11 is not supported. At the moment only R9 and R10.
