Crashes and Unstoppable Previews in C4D R24

I recently upgraded from ver. 1457 on R21 to ver. 1472 on R24, and TFD has become almost completely unusable.

Most of the time, loading in a TFD container causes an application error and crashes C4D.


If it’s able to actually load the TFD container, then there’s like a 50/50 chance that running a simulation will cause a crash. If it somehow is able to do that, then there’s about a %75 chance that the “stop” button on the simulation will become unresponsive and I have to task manager > force quit out of C4D.

Strangely, If I open a C4D project file that already has scene with TFD components built into it (like one of the pre-made examples that comes with TFD), then I am able to actually run the simulation. However, there’s still about a %75 chance the preview will become unstoppable. And if I try to copy and paste the TFD objects into another scene: crash.

For reference, I am running Windows 10, i7-8700 CPU, dual 1070 ti GPU, 32gb RAM

Is anyone else having these issues? Any help would be great.

PS: In case anyone is able to decipher it, I am including the C4D bugreport text file below.

Just made a discovery for dealing with unstoppable simulation previews - hold down esc. It doesn’t work right away, but after about half a second the input seems to slip through and cancel the simulation.

EDIT: I’ve found that this isn’t really reliable.

It would be really great if I could get some help with this…

Having the same issue with R23 1472 and 1471.

Same here, can’t use TFD anymore. Crashes and freezes, I don’t even see the container bounding box anymore … :frowning:

Same problem here with 1472 and 1471. I suspect a Windows update broke it, since this suddenly happened in the last week and it was working fine earlier in the month.

I can confirm that v1465 still works, and that’s what we’re using. You can download it from the “build archive” on the install page.

I tried that version, but I can only download v1465le from the archive…

Yeah - weird. Try contacting support to request a download of 1465 - that’s what I’m doing.

Well at least I’m not alone! I sent this post to support but haven’t heard back yet, but I’ll post their response when they reply (hopefully soon?)

Please try the latest build v1.0 1475. If the issue persists, please attach the new _BugReport.txt.
Thank you.
