SOLVED Is C4D_PLUGINS_DIR env var still working (R20.0.28)?

Hello all,

good job on the new forum, looks really nice.

I was going through the update process from R19 to R20, and I wanted to check if I could get several paths for C4D_PLUGINS_DIR working, since I haven't been able to achive this (see: ).

But it seems to not be working with even a single path? I'm trying to get Arnold loaded in C4D, here are the environment variables:

C4D_BROWSERLIBS=C:\env_manager\packages\arnold_for_cinema4d\2.4.1.2/C4DtoA-2.4.1.2/library
C4D_PLUGINS_DIR=C:\env_manager\packages\arnold_for_cinema4d\2.4.1.2/C4DtoA-2.4.1.2/plugins/

And the folder structure in that path is as follows (normal C4DtoA plugin struct):

C:\ENV_MANAGER\PACKAGES\ARNOLD_FOR_CINEMA4D\2.4.1.2\C4DTOA-2.4.1.2
├───library

        │       ├───description
        │       └───dialogs
        └───shaders

Yet when I launch Cinema4D, the plugin won't load, if I install this same package inside the Cinema4D folder it does work.

So any ideas?

Thanks,

Oscar.

Hello,

in Cinema 4D R20 the environment variable C4D_PLUGINS_DIR has been removed.

It has been replaced with g_additionalModulePath. You can use this command also as a command line argument.

See Environment Variables.

Please notice that you can mark your post also as a question. See Q&A New Functionality.

best wishes,
Sebastian
