    Btw: Joren, that’s the second time I’ve posted a comment and out disappeared within a few minutes of posting.. what’s up with that?

  2. Chase, not sure why the first comment didn’t go through, weird! The second one made it. Hopefully it was just a glitch and not something wrong with wordpress. Thanks for posting some plugins, I’ll check them out!

  3. Must be a coding/Wordpress glitch Joren, it’s posting them our showing in the posters browser as being posted, once you leave the page, they disappear.

    I checked the “email me if some one responds”

    You should have more comments showing.

    Lack_DT posted a comment thanking you at 6:43 am est according to the auto responder I received. Their post is not showing either… just disappeared…?

    Can’t debug in this browser or I’d take a peek at the source and see if I could help you out there. You’ll find it I’m sure.

    Hope that helps you a little, at least know you have a bug or a glitch somewhere.

    Look forward to your next Newsletter. And tutorial!

    @ Qaiser – There are several Tuts out there for using Ivy Gen with C4D.

    Plus I found since posting that you can make your own Ivy Gen or Plant Generator in C4D with Xpresso.

    I think there even is a few project files where people have done so… google it – I’m sure you will find what you are looking for.

    Here is a couple tut links on using Ivy Gen with C4D:

    1) http://vimeo.com/21143275

    2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPK1lPUKC1k

    3) http://lesterbanks.com/2011/03/using-the-ivy-generator-with-cinema-4d/

    Hope that helps
