Here's another source for Twinmotion videos -
Do a search on you tube for "askNK Twinmotion".
Some good information there.

Anyone having an annoying pop up saying Twinmotion Plugin is outdated and theres a newer version available evertime they open Archicad....?

We have re-downloaded the plugin and installed a number of times but pop up remains.
Happens for us on both AC21 and AC22.

I can't run the installer, "because Apple cannot check it for malicious software":

Does this mean Cinema has been given notice and will be replaced by Twinmotion in AC24 or is this just a ploy to get users to pay for it in the future like other 3rd party add ons?

Got it sorted....its wasnt the direct link that needed the update.
Open up the 'Epic Games Launcher' and run what ever update is listed....worked for us.

It does not ray-trace though, so until it does, I would doubt it. My guess would be the second point.

I'm still getting the 'A newer version is available' notification. I've downloaded the installer again, ran all updates in the Epic Launcher even installed Unreal Engine and made sure that is up to date.

When I click 'about' in ArchiCAD it says 'v1.5.1, SDK AC=22.265, MT=5410, SD=46'. Any idea if this is the latest version or why it keeps pestering me to update when I can't find any updates? Running it on WIN10.

The 'newer version is available' message for me was just for the plug-in, not Twinmotion itself... downloaded the AC plug-in again from their site and it went away. (The whole thing with their game launcher was a hassle on the initial install, as the download link was to an out-of-date version of the launcher, which then downloaded an out of date version of Twinmotion... so lots of updates later, everything worked.)

...but thanks for the tip about launching the Epic Games launcher... as it is now downloading a Twinmotion update which I wasn't prompted for in-product. It's super annoying on my really low-speed internet connection that it is re-downloading all 8.32 GB vs an incremental updater.
