  1. Wondering if this plugin is still working, supported, and planned to be updated? Due to security reasons in our office, we are only able to use the “Mail” function of this plugin. I agree with other users that a simple “Sound” would be a nice addition and also options to alert only for specific user/machine named submission is complete. With mail systems integrating 2-step verification, not sure how to get the mail option to function properly. I tried with a Hotmail account and the “test e-mail” hung indefinitely. I also tried the Mac OS Notifier but it didn’t work either. Thinking that the “Privacy & Security” enhancements on Apple’s end into the OS might prevent it? I looked under that preference pane but didn’t see it listed. Updated documentation/instructional would be helpful. Thanks!

  2. Does this work with r20? I haven’t been able to get it to work. I’m trying to Copy a file, and email.

  3. Hello & thanks for the PlugIn!
    Since the Mailer doesn’t work in my case, I wrote a Python mailing script that does.
    I now would like to integrate job name and status. Is that possible?

    • You can access them by using ‘job.GetString(c4d.JOB_NAME)’ or job.GetString(c4d.JOB_STATE)’. Feel free to also check the source of the mailer notifier/mail/

  4. We use TRS with many user accounts. Can Notifier be tied to individual user accounts, i.e., if User A submits a job, User A (and perhaps the Admin) gets a notification to User A’s (and in this case, also Admin) specific email address? All other users would not be notified… If so, how would the plugin install be affected?

    • This is currently not supported but a nice addition for an update. I will add it to the TODO list

  5. Sebastian,
    I am having issues with this crashing my R18 Team Render Server setup. The application became unresponsive when this was loaded in the plugins folder and when I removed it the application worked perfectly again. Thoughts? This seems really awesome so I’d love to get it setup.

  6. I keep getting a traceback error when prompting through my email and the associated information

    • I can help you out to make it work. Can I send you a mail on your given mail address?

  7. All of the screenshots appear to be Mac-based. Does this work on a Windows box running TRS? We’ve dropped in the plugin and it appears, but when attempting to use it returns a bunch of errors each time.

    • Windows is also supported. I can help you out to make it work. Can I send you a mail on your given mail address?

  8. Would love to see this for regular picture viewer renders, Server is nice for long animations, but otherwise picture viewer is handy for single frames (who can be long to render as well, and I’ve had to rely on fan noise for years to identify if a render was finished.

  9. OK, now it appears to be properly installed. Even so I do not see it too intuitive. Anyway thank you very much.

  10. This Notifier will be very useful! Thanks! I have the Email Notifier working. For the SMS Notifier, what is suppose to be entered in the To and From fields? Will I be able to use the SMS Notifier without incurring any charges from Twilio? Thanks!

    • Thanks for your feedback! The SMS notifier needs an account at Twilio but it is easy to create. A single text message costs around 0.0075$ and with ~20$ you should be covered for some weeks :-). There is also a demo account available.

      • Thanks for the response, Sebastian! That’s cheap!

        What is suppose to be entered in the To and From fields?

      • From is the number you get from your Twilio Account. Check you settings or their FAQ. To is the number of the receiver. In the demo account this is limited to the phone number which was used to create the account.

    • I added a brief installation instruction. Please let us know, if you still experience problems. Thanks!
