Frost in Max 2019


#6

Third in the queue - would live to see a recompile for 2019. I’d love to use fluids with Frost and it looks like I’m going to leave 2018 alone and just go with 2019.

As for feature updates - will it be possible to use Max Fluids directly with Frost without having to save out to PRT? That would be a great addition for current and new Frost users.


#7

I am not sure whether this is technically possible, I have logged it as a wish to explore if it is feasible.


#8

Thanks, hopefully it’s possible. Otherwise let us know so we can request this as users, maybe it helps.


#9

+1 for 2019 support…


#10

Is 2019 support added yet?


#11

You guys adding bifrost support or something? :wink: :smiley:


#12

Not that I’m aware of, but we just (three minutes ago) uploaded a version of Frost you’ll probably want to try out. :slight_smile:


#13

Guess my 2.10 license doesn’t support this version? (I have active maintenance) :frowning:

Something interfering with max2019 install

[code]---------------------------
3ds Max plugin installation for Frost

Error installing to D:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2019:
frantic/win32/wrap.hpp:76 frantic::win32::AutoRegKey::create_key() assert condition ERROR_SUCCESS == result failed: Failed to create the key “SOFTWARE\Thinkbox\Frost”

OK

If you contact our sales department (thinkbox-sales@amazon.com) they will be happy to send you an updated license.


#15

Thanks Evan just did.

Please see above Max2019 install issue. It was greyed out when I ran the installer now it is just dropping that error when I run the Add to Max utility.


#16

Try running the installer as an administrator.


#17

Hmm just checked the localized plugin.ini the Frost entry was written so… got me what the heck ever that error was about.

It is working as expected in 2019

Thanks :wink:


#18

It might be nice if we could download the latest license via the website instead of contacting support.

Nonetheless, thanks for the update. I am eager to migrate to 2019 in full force.


#19

@Shawn you can log in with an amazon account and grab it from the downloads page. :wink:


#20

But he wants the LICENSE, not the installer. That is not possible yet. :slight_smile:


#21

Aahh caught speed reading…yet again. Thank goodness no one gives out citations for that, I would be broke. :smiley:


#22

:slight_smile:

Got my license so it’s all good now.


#23

where can I download new frost (and kraka or xmesh) versions as a customer in ‘maintenance’ mode?

best,


#24

You can download them from our new download site downloads.thinkboxsoftware.com/.


#25

Totally missed that update, I’d really appreciate if Thinkbox sent e-mail notifications about new/updated products - I guess I’m not the only one asking for this :wink:

Any other way to d/l the installer, without having to create an Amazon account first?
