Is the latest production build (361) compatible with the plugin?

Hi Luke, currently the plugin is compatible with 367
When you download the plugin and install it, you can use the Pipeline menu to download the compatible version of HE from within C4D.

Cool. I think I'll wait until the production build updates before trying it out. Looking forward to it though!

Although someone from SideFX would be more qualified to answer this, I think it will not interfere with your working Houdini installation. I have H13 and 4 versions of H14 installed and haven't experienced any interference whatsoever.
Let's see what they say…

This plug-in only works with the version posted on the Maxon site. The next production build will not work with the plug-in - you will need to have more than one Houdini working side-by-side to work with the plug-in.

Note that we have fully QA'ed the 14.0.367 build - even though it is not officially a production build, the quality of the build is the same as a production build. We just didn't want to label it as such because the 14.0.361 production build was produced only days before. Build 14.0.367 has a few important fixes for the purpose of the C4D plugin - please feel free to use this version.

Hi
Install HE module and go to main menu, you will see Pipeline > HE > Get Houdini Installer

Hello

I'm having some trouble installing the open Beta.

I installed the plugin for C4D. I downloaded and installed the installer from the menu in C4D.
After restarting C4D the pipeline menu still only has the “Get Houdini Installer”-option.
I noticed the C4D downloaded installer is called houdini-14.0.367-macosx_x86_64_clang6.1_10.10 But when i open the archive it has the installer for 14.0.374.
Do I need exactly 14.0.367 or is 14.0.374 also good?

I have a Houdini Indi licence. Im on Mac OS10.10.2
