Cinema 4D Version: R14
I see that Maxon have released a student/teacher edition to join the free student edition. I think this is new, isn't it? And I think it's a great idea.
But... I have a question which follows on from this thread - https://plugincafe.maxon.net/topic/6410/6875_check-for-free-student-version - in which Matthias indicated that commercial plugins needed to test for the SYSTEMINFO_STUDENT bit if we didn't want our plugs to run in the free student edition. That was fine. Well, fine for new plugs anyway, not so fine for pre-existing ones that would run in the demo version.
But now the student/teacher edition says serial-dependent plugs ARE supported. So presumably the SYSTEMINFO_STUDENT bit is not set in this version. Is the SYSTEMINFO_SAVEABLEDEMO bit set in this version? Because if it is, a lot of commercial plugins won't run in the student/teacher edition, despite it being said that they will, because they are coded not to run in the demo version. Or is there yet another SYSTEMINFO bit for this version?
Could Maxon support provide some clarification please? Otherwise there is the risk of new purchasers buying the student/teacher edition and then finding that the plugins they buy won't work.
