I REALLY, REALLY,REALLY want to get ClothMotion and tSDisplace

registered. I need the extra features Registration unlocks. But getting

hold of the author (Chikara Kojima) seems nothing short of impossible....

Can anyone help me out? I SHOULD have bought the Calligari aniPak,

fxPak and dePak.... I DID get the rayPak (smart move)! Does the ClothMotion

on the aniPak have the registration on it or do you have to go online

for it? Also, I was on the tsx Archive and got C. Kojima,s Poly Tools!!

Great plugin although, I'm not sure. I think it might have to be registered

too!! Does the version on the archive have the 200 point limit?

I have not tested it yet... But I think it might....

If I could get a used aniPak, dePak and fxPak disc this would probably

help me out.... This really shouldn't be so hard...

I'm also trying to get vcTek (2.0) and vcBlu. Does anyone have the

authors email address???

Thanks.....

Unfortunately, I can't help, all I can say is that your not alone. I regret massively not getting my hands on those plug-ins.


I'm not sure why Caligari pulled the packs, maybe they still have some lying around. I never see them for sale anywhere, ebay etc.

I dont have an email for the Vtek author but his name is Dave Wilson and was a Truespace 6.6 user.

Primitive itch used to sell it at one time try asking at mailto:support@primitiveitch.com (support@primitiveitch.com)

For the life of me I will never understand when developers stop offering thier plugins for sale they seem to just sit on the code,it would be a nice gesture to offer them up free of charge like Greg Basset has with some of his.

So if the devs are reading this how about it? or at the very least sell it to us. :)

anipak has the registration info in the install instructions for clothmotion.

Don't forget some of these authors had licensing arrangements regarding the sale of their products so some of them cannot just offer them up or sell them.


Also, up until 76 was given away the interest in these plugins had waned considerably.

Thats right but if you dont have AnipaK but have a demo of whatever tsx you have to try to get in touch with the developer.

Happily I took the opportunity and bought all the stuff I'm likely to need during

the Caligari sale,but I can sympathise with the people who did'nt.

I think this is probably the most difficult thing about using truespace, many of it's best plug-ins disappear over time, sometimes with no warning. You have to keep legacy features intact if you want to hold on to your userbase imo.

I agree entirely. This seems to be the greatest source of concern for most of us here.

Absolutely - there's a lot of us still using (and liking) the 'model side' architecture and associated plug-ins - I wish I'd got a few more when I had the chance. I have the restricted version of PolyTools for example that would be fantastically useful if I had the registration but no luck...

I have to admit I use 6.6 a lot mainly because of the plug ins and the comfort I feel with the model side, though I also have not had a lot of time yet to cross over and get used to 7x. There were a lot of good plug ins out there at one time and in fact, new plug ins seemed to be popping up a couple times a month. One of the things I loved about the old TS was this fact (I even remember a small catalogue that I think either came with TS 3 or a different disk that advertised these old plugins... thermoclay, treedo (I think) and so on). The lack of plugins now is a bit disconcerting, even though TS has a much stronger user base these days.

There are still sites that promote old TS plugins out there, though again, registration is an issue with many of them. It'd be cool if caligari were able to round some of these guys up and see if they want to do something like a reunion special, placing the products back up for sale or download through Caligari's site (since many of the former venders are now defunct, like Primitive Itch)... providing, of course, there are no contractual obligations that do not allow this.

Just a thought, maybe a stupid one, but it's early and that's how my mind works in the morning. :p

We no longer resell third party software on our site. We will though point people at third party sites where vendors can sell their own stuff directly, as can be seen in our store. Any of the developers of plug-ins old and new are welcome to contact us with the URL of their store and we can add them in there so people can find and purchase their plug-ins.


HTH!
