C4D Live link problem

Post by Robert » 17 May 2019, 11:20

Hi devs,

Could you explain what to check when the Live link doesn't works ?
We have an error message saying that Ventuz plugin is not able to find the server...

Regards,

Rob

check in cinema4d in the PReferences window .. -> Ventuz Live Link ... the IP adress / host name of ventuz.. should be empty..
if thats the case try to use 127.0.0.1 or localhost.

usally if its on the same machine this field can stay empty.

if that doesnt work: reinstall the plugin!
Check in %appdata% Maxon Release Plugins folder and delete the Ventuz plugin and the same for the "Program files/maxon/ReleaseNR/Plugins/.."
Delete all Ventuz Plugins in these locations..
sometimes it is copied in 2 loations and may screw up things.

then reinstall the plugin.

Hi Dennis,

Thank's to the IP address setting we manage to use the live link between two computers.
We don't know why it doesn't work on the same machine. This is a workaround we can assume for the moment.

Regards,
