Please take a close look at RealFlow | Cinema 4D's list of limitations and known bugs. It is a valuable resource when you encounter problems, crashes, or difficulties:
- Cinema 4D R15, R16, R17, R18, R19 or R20 (64 bit only)
- Windows 7 (or higher) or macOS 10.9 (or higher) operating system.
- CPU 64-bit Intel® or AMD® multi-core processor.
- 8 GB RAM.
- 100 MB disk space for installation.
- Network adapter and internet access for license activation.
- RealFlow | Cinema 4D supports GPU-based simulations and multi-core/multi-processor systems.
Since fluid simulations are computationally expensive and allocate large amounts of disk space we recommend Intel® i7 or Xeon systems (or comparable), 16 GB RAM (or more) and a 512 GB hard disk drive/SDD.
RFCFD-671 - Cache offset does not work for Fluid nodes.
RFCFD-351 - Array Tool: Parameters can't be animated for meshes.
RFCFD-517 - Initial State files created in RealFlow | Cinema 4D 1.0 are not compatible with 2.0 version due to the switch from RPC to Alembic.
RFCFD-356 - When using a multi-segment spline with the spline emitter node the "Prev" and "Next" buttons only iterate through the control points on the current segment.
RFCFD-358 - File paths can't have unicode characters on macOS.
RFCFD-519 - Simulation steps configuration from RealFlow | Cinema 4D 1.0 scenes is reset to Auto mode when opened in 2.0 version.

- RFCFD-353 - Undo/Redo is not working when a control point is added.
- RFCFD-551 - Having two or more k Isolated daemons linked to the same fluid makes the isolation value grow as many times as the number of k Isolated linked daemons.
