      Hi Volker Behrens,
      It Seems to works well, but
      the amount of options does not allow me to give the assurance that there are no problems with R15.

    I just purchased your Graph Maker V.3. After I made the purchase thru PayPal it prompted it me to a download link. The folder I downloaded didn’t have any plug-in as your installer link said it would have, it only had a C4D project file with one bar graph in it. I am hoping you could send me the download file with all the content it listed at

    Thank you

    PS the purchase was through Tim Tompkins

    • admin on February 24, 2013 at 3:33 pm

      Hi Glenn, I already answered email, but I’m writing this here again, in case someone else has the same question.

      The Graph Maker is not a plugin in the traditional sense; it is an XPresso preset, which always comes as a project file. You just open and use it.

      But there is a way to install a preset into your C4D content browser. Just follow these steps:

      Hi Dlanor,
      I have to make some other test. For now I can say that it seems to be working.
      Kyle could say the same thing.
      In the next days I’m going to officialize the R14 compatibility.

    i bought this software just to find out it is for MAC only :-( . can i got a refund plz

    • admin on September 30, 2012 at 6:20 pm

      Is it really Mac-only? As far as I know it was even developed on a Windows PC. Let’s wait what the developer says. If it’s really Mac-only you’ll of course get a refund.

    • Gianni on September 30, 2012 at 7:09 pm

      I’m having a doubt… Do you have Cinema 4D in your PC? This is not a stand alone software, it only works with Cinema 4D (for Windows and Mac). In any case, I developed this preset on a Windows PC.

    Hi Gianni, I’ve already bought your graph maker and I need to do a single bar with the value = 40%. I tried to do maximum value = 100 and bar value = 40, but it shows me 100%. How can I fix that? Thank you!

    • Gianni on September 22, 2012 at 11:14 am

      Hi Leandro,
      first of all… Thanks for purchase my GM!
      The apparent problem is due to the multibar orientation of preset. And the Maximum Value fixes only the shapes of bars, so you can animate the values without change of the main shape like the panel and the curves of the bars.
      But you can fix that! Simply go to animation tab, tick the flag on Enable Custom Animation and change the Y value of the right point to 0.4.

    • Leandro on September 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm

      Great!!! Thanks Gianni.

    I am looking for a graph tool, and your Graph maker looks impressive. I have no experience with Cinema 4 D and would only get it to use your plugin. What Cinema produkt do I need to buy – is there a light version of some sort?
    Regards Richard

    • Gianni on August 2, 2012 at 1:18 pm

      Hi Richard,
      I think you can try to download the demo version.
      Take a look to the basics of Cinema 4D and after try to contact me, so we can see if Graph Maker works fine or not.

    Richard Jachimowicz on June 20, 2012 at 3:49 pm


    Great Graph maker. The results are awesome! But am wondering how to enable the following.
    There is an option for ‘enable gradient color for bar’. but this gives me a gradient on the bar.
    Is it possible to have a solid color assigned to the bars based on the value? which then picks the colors from the gradient?
    I hope I worded it correctly.

    Thank You and have a great day!


    • gianni on June 21, 2012 at 2:11 am

      Hi Richard.
      Thanks for buying first and for the GREAT.
      That function, only for bars on the floor and standing up works in the way you have seen. Unfortunately the mode you would like to have is not implemented, but is a great idea. I will think a little bit about it. For any other question do not esitate to contact me.

      Best Regards,

    • gianni on June 22, 2012 at 11:02 pm

      Hello Richard!
      I have a good news… Today I spent my time for this new feature and I got it! I’ll send an email for details.

    • Richard on June 23, 2012 at 10:12 pm

      Hi Gianni

      Thank You kindly for responding so quickly and even more thanks for adding this great new option!

      Am very impressed with Graph Maker and the developer.


    • gianni on June 25, 2012 at 1:21 am

      Just to say that after some time spent to work on and thanks to the costant feedback from Richard I can promise to all of you two new usefull color features in the next update:
      -Color from Gradient
      -Color from Gradient by Values

      I leave the floor to richard.

      PS: Keep in mind that the special materials (GM.Gradient.Bar, GM.Panel.Lines, GM.Random.Bar, and next GM.Solid.from.Gradient, have the settings calculated by XPresso in both channels Color and Luminance, so you are free to activate the one you prefer.

    • Richard on June 28, 2012 at 5:05 am

      Thanks Gianni!
      Where do I start. I have nothing but praise. You really stand behind Your product.
      Not only did You answer my question by implementing that exact feature within just a few days…
      You’re giving us even another great way to create stunning results with Graph Maker!
      -So not only can You now have it pick colors from Your gradient automatically based on the values of the individual bars.
      -You can also have it apply the gradient horizontally across the bars. With each bar a slightly different color.
      This one especially creates nice looking bar graphs with just a simple click of the button.
      I really enjoyed providing the feedback as You added these new features…
      Which in the end resulted in Graph Maker becoming an even better solution for all one’s Graph needs!
      Thanks again!

    Are the values of bars animatable? It’s clear that they can be keyframed, but would that mean the bars would grow?

    • gianni on June 12, 2012 at 10:11 pm

      You must set only the final values and the single bar grows with value from zero to the set value. If you go with keyframing to the values after the last animation frame (before it should be costant) the bars will follow the new values.
      I hope I’ve explained it well.
      Go at the minute 14:55 of the demo video to see the values animation.
