node space doesn’t exist

WTH is this?

I’ve spent this afternoon creating a bunch of redshift materials and now *some* of them are inaccessible, replaced with a warning triangle and the message “node space doesn’t exist”

Are they lost for good? Is this going to keep happening now that we’re in node-world? Any old materials may spontaneously cease to work?

Or is there a way to get them back? For now I can copy them from an older version of the scene, but it’s a big trap

C4D R26
Redshift 3.5.4

Hi patrick.nethercoat,

Yes, those moments are not nice to have and let’s have a look to avoid those in the future.

Some nodes are specific to a Render Engine. If you developed something in Standard Render and want to have this in Redshift 3D, it might not be available. All of that said has little value compared to see what happened:

If you could share a project file just with this material alone, I will have a look into it, of course.


I can send you an upload link; just let me know (For security reasons, Adobe, Apple, Amazon, DropBox, Google, and Wetransfer cloud services, please. Thank you)

Cheers

Sure, send the link. I’ll be away from my machine for a while, but I’ll upload it when I can.

Cheers

Hi patrick.nethercoat,

Let me know if you got the link (Cineversity Private Message)

The link was sent today around noonish (PST). Take your time. When it arrives, an email is sent to me. I will look into it.

Enjoy your weekend

Thanks for the file, patrick.nethercoat!

When you switch to Redshift in the Render Settings, the material shows no “!” and is used as intended.

All the best
