Activity Forums Maxon Cinema 4D Screen Going Black in Live Selection Mode

  • Screen Going Black in Live Selection Mode

    Posted by Sean Lloyd on December 8, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Hi All,

    When I am in live selection mode and left click to make a multi-selection, my screen goes black so I can’t see what I’m selecting. Any ideas?

    I have virtually the same set up on my laptop, but it doesn’t do it there. Both are Macs.

    Thanks in advance….

    This is a well known problem and it occurs when the version of cinema 4d is not compatible with your desktop.

    I recommend the following:

    1. Go to your preference and try changing your display to openGl.

    2. While booting your cinema 4d hold down shift Ctrl (command) till your cinema 4d comes up.

    If the following does not work. Try installing a lower version for your desktop.
