System Requirements

X-Particles requires Cinema 4D R14 or later (R14 to R23*).

X-Particles Build 895 is the last Update that will support Cinema 4D R14 to R18. Future Updates will support only R19 and later and your computer will need a processor that has AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions).

*Our new OpenGL display in X-Particles works in Cinema 4D R14 to R21 and R23. You will need a supported GPU with up-to-date drivers. Due to Maxon removing OpenGL from Cinema 4D S22, this feature is not supported in S22.

Operating System

Windows 7 or later, or Mac OS X Yosemite (version 10.10) or later.

The email address used when purchasing X-Particles will become your registered license email address. This same email address will need to be entered, when requested, in order to use X-Particles.

X-Particles licensing is done online so you need an internet connection and must connect at least every 14 days (you can only be offline for 14 days).

On some Windows systems, you may get a warning that you are missing some runtime files. If so, go to our Knowledge Base where you can download them.

Some Mac OS X Catalina (version 10.15) users may experience security warnings when installing. If so, go to our Knowledge Base for instructions on how to proceed.
