Installation & activation
Here are complete step-by-step instructions on how to install and activate Terraform4D:
Unpack the ZIP to
Cinema 4D Rxx/plugins.
Start Cinema 4D. In the Extensions menu (or, in R20, the Plugins menu), you will see the Terraform4D menu. Use the option Activate Terraform4D... to bring up the Activation dialog.
In the Activation dialog, you will see a ‘System Code’. This is a unique code that is computed from your computer hardware. It's used by Terraform4D to lock the plugin license to your machine, but does not contain any sensible data. It's anonymous.
Now you have several options:
- You can click the ‘Request Activation Key’ button. This will take you to Activate page of the Terraform4D website, which will allow you to generate a temporary demo activation key (valid for one month), or request a perpetual activation key after you purchased. Please note, that the online demo key generator will only generate a key for your system code once.
- You can also copy the system code, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will get a temporary activation key back.
- You can also click the ‘Purchase Full Version’ button. This will take you to the Terraform4D web shop, where you can purchase a perpetual activation key.
Whatever way you chose, you will eventually have an activation key. Enter the key in the Activation dialog, click OK, and then restart Cinema 4D.
After restarting Cinema 4D, you will find the Terraform4D menu populated with all the components.
In case you are not sure if the plugin has loaded correctly, take a look into the Cinema 4D Console window. Terraform4D should output some messages here.
