    Updated to support SKU 2020. No reference to what else might have changed. Feel free to add any changelog you might come across.
    Product info: https://getskatter.com/

    Protection remains the same as always so if you have it working you can keep enjoying it.

    No renderers for SKU 2020 yet, so I copied over the Maxwell 5.0.1 folder from SKU 2019 and had no problems.

    Updated to 1.4.13.
    Same code bit for bit as in 1.4.12, therefore same protection and fix files.
    There seems to be some minor change in a menu file but I didn't bother to check it.

    v1.4.14 is out and I almost missed it (I thought I had already cracked it :) ).

    No idea of what has changed but probably is only some scripting. The protected files are the same as before, so use whatever fix you already have.

    What was unexpected is that it worked with VRay 5. An early comment I had read, claimed that the API had changed and the plugin would have to be updated.
    Since the plugin code itself hasn't changed, I guess the API changes didn't affect Skatter. Either that, or what I've tried doesn't use the changed API.

    Updated to 1.4.15

    No changelog posted but the files/crack are the same as in the previous version. No need for a render on my Cray computer.

    It looks like the only change is a warning about broken compatibility with proxies under VRay NEXT 4.20.03 (NEXT Update 2.2).
    You should use instead VRay NEXT 4.20.02 (NEXT Update 2.1).

    And the wait for VRay 5 compatibility goes on...

    Updated to 1.4.16

    As before, no changelog posted.
    The only new addition is support for SketchUp 2021. A case of the plugin coming before the main program :)

    The protected files haven't changed so any proper fix you have for the last few years, should still work.
    Even the additional files for SKU 2021 use the exact same protection. You crack one, you can crack all. Can't get easier than that...

    But still no VRay 5 support.

    Up to 1.4.19.

    No changelog posted but it might be related to its Vray initialization.

    Protection remains the same.

    I made a render since SKU 2021 is now available using a modified Shaderlight until a proper version for 2021 comes out.
    Even so, the poor Sketchup panel looks too empty :)

    And now 1.4.20.
    Protection is bit for bit the same as before.

    Changelog (unofficial and based on comments in forums):

    All fixes relate to problems with VRay 5.

    For the fixes to work, you need the latest version of Skatter, plus the latest release of VRay 5.0 (at the moment, hotfix 1 (v5.00.02)).

    -- Fixed render-only setups not working with VRay.
    -- Using VRay proxies as scattered objects works now.
    -- Fixed exporting data multiple times when VRay render starts, instead of only once. Export shouldn't take that long now.
