cycles4D uses GPU, XP4 is responsive enough without need for GPU viewing...

fak nodes and shit...XP4 is pretty simple no need for nodes...you want nodes and complicated shit go learn Houdini

this version is sweet. no more messing with TFD simz for fire and smoke with the new Explosia engine (formerly used in XSI).... real legit upgrade...

TFD is the defacto standard for Fluids. period. XP has the crappiest workflow you could imagine, cluttering the whole object manager once you start to do more than a simple text morph. By GPU I mean for solving, not viewport. XP is years behind of what RealFlow or TfD can do..
Nodes would be mandatory even for intermediate users nowadays.
You will see, others arent sleeping anymore..

put in the same effort you took to learn antiquated dumpy C4D and you'll learn Houdini. It takes time.

Having used both, there is no way you can equate the learning curve of C4D to Houdini.

Surely it can't be that hard to crack as with most C4D plugins.

I know Nomad cracked version 2 (or some older version).

it depends, when you come to tweaks things... in c4d you're in a closed box, and more you use plug ins, more you're closed,...
It's faster to learn, but when the client is happy and say "you know it's really cool but, can you change that stuff there?" ...YOU ARE (often) FUCKED!
I thought the same about the learning curve... But you can do lot of stuff more easily after little bit of experience with it, and no headache for some modifications on the go...
Btw you choose for you're future! (and money)
X-Particles gave me the chance to think... it was (and it is) really expensive, and I had no chance to try it for more than 30 days as a demo... are you kidding me? then I say, ok, fuck. let's move to houdini.
Really painful transition! but now, no more plug ins or that shitty sort of things like, " let's wait another year for that feature to come..."
... I am done with that!

Fak houdini and TFD as well while we are at it.

XP4 is so much easier than houdini and with the new upgrades, no need to ever open up that crackhead UI houdini.
I talking MGFX particles not visual FX.

Most of the houdini fannuts here are the ones that can't afford XP so they HAVE to like HOUDINI.

Of course you're right, keep telling yourself that Mike Batchelor when you're filing for chapter 11 because you haven't sold enough X-Particles licenses "It's because of them stupid, cheap customers who doesn't understand how superior your product is compared to Houdini"

Houdini is great but investing time in Houdini is even more expensive than Cinema. So I think I will buy x-particles.
In fact 500 - 600$...is not that much if you do 3D animation and have clients.

So much venom for X-particles in this thread! Speaking as long time user of C4D, I really tried and wanted to learn Houdini. When my Indie license runs out I won't be renewing..(could keep learning on apprentice if I decide to).. Is Houdini better in terms of capabilities? Of course it is! -but XP works how I would expect out of the box. XP takes a bunch of complex ideas and makes it easy for "regular" mograph bros. (Not VFX engineers) Long live XP! Haters just want it to be cheap or free...

nah... some people just don't want the shit. Haters don't care if it's cheap or free. They just don't want it. Plain and simple.
Don't try to elevate the reasoning into something more than it is. Besides that, there's probably a good chance it won't be cracked, just like v3.x. That means the whiners will complain it's not cheap or free and where's their free crack.

It doesnt matter if Houdini has everything. A piece of paper and a pen can do everything, yet not everyone can draw.

You buy what you can use. Do you know Houdini like the palm of your hand, and are pretty confident you can do what XP does out of the box? Then go for it.

I use C4D / XP because im feel pretty confident with them when a client ask me for something im not sure how to do it.

If you have to ask....but just in case you are constantly stoned like me....

you BUY XP...cause nomad or nobody can crack it... and it is the best thing for C4D since nomad.

The ONLY people saying learn Houdini over XP are the ones that don't have XP and are still struggling with XP2.1. Only newbie wankers tout houdini on a C4D XP board.

What does it matter to you? Does it make your man boobs swell and dribble milk because someone in the world may have more knowledge than you and will recommend something you know nothing about? Does it really make you that sad? Dude it's a piece of software. No need to berate people offering up other suggestions just because your ego won't allow it.

Then call louder. It is known that n0MAD just needs to look at software and it usually starts cracking itself on its own. If he casts a burial sight, the software probably would start shitting with source code files.

It's technically strange to see how this stays solid, while denuvo is screwed up with having the very same protector in their hands. "Too mass product" issue?

From my understanding the DRM is peppered all over the software and it's something they custom made for their own product. Plus not many people are interested in putting the time and effort to crack it.

XP4...perfect example of software being developed due to it not being cracked.... HOPE THIS NEVER GETS CRACKED!

Nobody releases upgrades like Insidyum. from 2 to 3 and now v4. Legit Feature Upgrades...not just BS fixes...

I am no programmer, but the actual methods of protection interest the hell out of me, started with cubase and AiR.

And I do agree to some extent with the lack of crack and the development, but I actually think it's just a solid product and it is very well proven in its use professionally. I'm only a hobbyist, but have bought Octane, and will be buying XP in the next few weeks too. I would buy C4D but the exhorbant cost is just too much, however if they changed the model a la Adobe (and at a more SENSIBLE price point) I would definitely subscribe. Surely ?50 a month and they would see actual sales shoot up.

I thought n0MAD said he woudn't do anymore after v2, as 80% of the software was protection, and it wasn't worth his time to track that sh*t down.

It's like limitless, imagine how good Xparticles would be, if it used 100% of it's software!

I'd say it's pretty good now. They just coded infinite bullshit in the protection afterwards. Part of development is protecting assets. No one can blame them for trying, and in this case, succeeding.

Couldn't agree more, and yes it isn't the case that somehow it's worse because they spend time protecting their IP. I was making a jokey reference to Limitless, since I'm watching the series (which is pretty great) , that had no relevance to reality.

Well, just bought it... Floating license makes sure that you can share it with other people, i'ts just that only one can work at a time. The best plugin ever. Worths every penny! Waiting for some flow field play, cloth ripping, and explosions

I rely a lot on Octane render... X-particles have draw backs using in Octane currently.. curious to see if that changes..
Cycles 4d have draw backs in C4d and Octane currently... curious to see if that changes..
C4d is the inherent problem I know but we can always hope.
