System Requirements

X-Particles 4 requires Cinema 4D R14 or later (R14 to R20). Any build – Prime, Visualize, Broadcast, or Studio – can be used. Thinking Particles is not required to use X-Particles, unless of course you want to use the X-Particles emitter to emit Thinking Particles (for most purposes this is not required, only if you want to use Pyrocluster or the Hair renderer to render the particles).

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

32-bit or 64-bit?

Version 4 of X-Particles will only run on 64-bit systems.

Operating System

C4D (R14 or later): Windows 7 or later, or on the Mac OSX 10.10.5 or later.

X-Particles 4 licensing is done online so you need an internet connection, and must have a connection at least every 30 days (you can only be offline for 30 days).
