    is there R16 version?

    • Sam Welker on October 31, 2014 at 11:10 am

      Hey Michael, the preset should natively work in r16. If you find that it doesn’t then email EJ and a fix will be sent out.

    Good Morning EJ, I am interested in purchasing your product. I just want to know if free updates will be available for upcoming versions if I purchase this now or will I have to buy them separately if and when they are released.

    Thank you Kindly.

    Hi, im interested with Text Edge Pro but i dont have much knowledge using Cinema 4D, would it be easy to use this tool following only the online tutorials? My version of C4D is R12.016 (32bit), can it run on this version? Hope to hear from you soon.

    • EJ Hassenfratz on March 27, 2014 at 4:34 pm

      Hi there Romeo,

      You should be able to get up and running pretty well with the tutorials. I will be posting more tutorials using Text Edge Pro in the near future! As for compatibility, it’s fully compatible and the R12 compatible version is called “Lite”, same functionality only it’s made for R12. Since a handful of the presets are made in R14, some of the presets that utilize “Inner Bevels” won’t work.

    I am running R13 and I get a “Normalizer” plugin missing error on a few of these. Is this correct? Doesn’t 13 have this? Any help?

    • EJ Hassenfratz on March 13, 2014 at 4:45 pm

      Hey Bob!

      Normalizer error is due to using an older copy of Cinema 4D, it in no way affects performance of the preset so just ignore it! Thanks!

    Has Text Edge FX Pro been updated for R15?

    • EJ Hassenfratz on November 4, 2013 at 6:38 pm

      Not yet, but a version for R15 will release soon. The current version works just fine with R15, it just doesn’t utilize the kerning but if you purchase TEFX Pro now, you’ll get a free update when the R15 version comes out.

    I bought htis product and I´m not that satisfied.

    I was interesetd especially in the “Drum Text” Pattern and tried to write some simple words in those letters.

    Always when changing one letter, the letter get´s thinner, without even changing the font and the legs and fittings move out of place. There is no way to replace it.

    Is there a tutorial that shows, how it works? Maybe it´s me who´s wrong but I couldn´t find any advice to fix the problems.

    Kind regards…

    • EJ Hassenfratz on November 4, 2013 at 6:37 pm

      Hi there!

      Sorry you feel that way, but the Drum Text preset needs a bit of manual work to get it to adapt to your text. The reason why the text jumps from the get go is due to you not having the font I built the preset in, meaning you’d have to manually reposition the legs and fittings back into place to adapt to your new word.

      TEFX is a bevel preset, so outside of the actual letter bevels & treatment like the wood extrusion material, the chrome edges, the rest is just me actually putting the legs & fitting additions on top of the base TEFX beveled text, so please keep that in mind when working with TEFX. It’s not a bug or problem, it’s just the nature of that one preset having a lot of custom additions to it that will need to be repositioned to fit your text.

    Bought this yesterday to do some logo work, but having trouble with the position of the logo in the render dropping down compared to what is in the viewport. Any thoughts?

      did you ever figure out the problem because I’m having the same issue
