Doesn’t Work, Now Model Won’t Render

Hello, I was trying to find a way to turn a spline extrude into a polygon and ran into a Maxon tutorial suggesting using CV Toolbox and CV Spline. I installed CV Toolbox, saw all of the plugins there and installed them, restarted Cinema 4D and get an error saying “All Installations Failed”. See attachments…

Now when I try to render a single frame to the Render Viewer I wait about 15 minutes and then the program crashes. I can’t think what else would have caused it. Is this a known bug? Should I just uninstall?

I’m on a new iMac, totally up to date and using Cinema 4D R23.

Hi williams.7489,

Your scene crashes as you have set for an already dense mesh a Material Displacement to Subdivision 12. Which based on your mesh and SDS would total to 1.6+ Trillion polygons. The crash and freeze would be expected, even on advanced workstations.

The CV-Spline plug-in, so far, I can tell with my experience in R23.110, is not loading. I leave that to the developers to answer.

All the best
