You can update your INSYDIUM Fused Plugins automatically through Cinema 4D, or by downloading the latest Build from your Customer Account.
If downloading the new build through your Customer Account, this can be installed as normal by following the installation video
If you update your plugin through Cinema 4D and receive an error message (see below), it means that your plugin has been installed in Program Files (Windows) or Applications (macOS), not the Cinema 4D Preferences. Please refer to the video instructions above to move your plugin to the correct folder and try again.
Unable to write to the INSYDIUM Fused folder.
Please ensure the plugin is located in the correct plugins folder.
Please see the manual for more information.
This error occurs for security reasons because both Windows and macOS place access restrictions in the Program Files and Applications folders.
If the Update is still not working through Cinema 4D after the plugin has been moved to the correct location, please remove your current installation and download the new Build from your Customer Account. This can then be installed by following the above video instructions.
NOTE: Automatically updated Builds are only available for licenses with Maintenance or an active Subscription.
I highly recommend anyone using X-Particles to use it in tandem with Cycles 4D. The bridge between the two allows for some amazing effects and control over the appearance of your particle systems. Being a regular Cinema 4D user also meant that Cycles 4D was fairly easy to pick up and integrate into our workflow. - Matthew Encina Blind.com
Cycles 4d is the render engine I’ve always wanted to have as a C4D artist. It’s a feature rich engine that doesn’t ask you to change the way you work to get the render you want. You can render entirely procedurally, or with image textures. It doesn’t feel like a plug-in at all, it feels like an update. - Casey Hupke
Playing with TP and Xpresso is a thing of the past for me now. - Ash Thorp
Territory use X-Particles a lot when it comes to detailed simulations for feature film UI. The ease of use means we can turn work around quickly without sacrificing a demanding quality bar - David Sheldon-Hicks / Founder and creative director / Territory Studio
Designer-friendly and technically advanced, simply powerful and art direction-able, X-Particles is an integral tool of my workflow, always impressed how Insydium are constantly developing and refining the most important toolset for Cinema 4D. - Motion Designer; Director; Brett Morris
X-Particles is an essential tool in my creative workflow - whether it be for creating daily images or commercial client projects. It allows me to quickly and intuitively throw together visual concepts or drill down into more complex, technical setups. The integrated interactive and video manual are outstanding, and if you can’t get the answers there, the support team are personal and very quick to help out. - Joey Camacho, Raw & Rendered
