Forger Export to C4D and back

Hey, I am trying to establish a link from Forger App to C4D on Windows.  From my iPad, the Forger app can see my desktop on the local network but when I export to C4D nothing seems to happen or it’s sending to unknown location.  From my desktop, under Extensions is the “Send Project to Forger” option, but it doesn’t find my iPad.  I am using R25.015.
Any suggestions?  Thanks

Hi Bakerbay,

The manual has not changed, so I assume that this option should be available:
https://learn.forger.app/ios-manual/fileio/

I’m sure you have the Cinema 4D> Preferences> Extensions> Forger File transfer set to on.

I have no Windows hardware here, so would you mind checking with the support?

Sorry, there is something… , I’m not clear what I can communicate here or not, but the support can.

All the best

Thanks for your help.  It seems everything is as it should be. Forger File Transfer is set to allow.

Thanks for confirming, Bakerbay.

As I wrote, I’m sure it is set up correctly. Please check with the support. Thank you.

My best wishes

I submitted a ticket so let’s see what happens.  Anything I find out I will share.  Love your YouTube channel, by the way.  Very interesting and helpful.

Thanks a lot for doing that, Bakerbay!

Very kind of you to give me feedback on my YouTube content. Very kind of you.

I’m really sorry to be that blurry in my reply; I’m not sure what I can say and what not, in this case.

Thanks again for understanding.

Enjoy

Forger new to Maxon family.  I expect the relationship will improve over time. Hopefully Forger will get some great feature improvements in the future.

Thanks for your trust in this, Bakerbay.

If you have ideas, please never hesitate to use the Support ticket option to suggest needed features.

Yes, I can’t say anything, but if one looks at my path in the past, I’m interested in connectivity along a particular pipeline. I can see any iPad app that expands this pipeline as a simple way to instantly set up a team-work-platform on the spot without breaking the budget. wink … or just move the “studio” for a lovely time elsewhere.

Thanks again, and stay safe!
