We will also be making tools for developers. This area will change in future but for now it is dedicated to C4D developers.

Here you will find documentation on all the descriptions that Cinema 4D currently has. You can list them Alphabetically, by Type or Plugin . The sample Python and C++ code is automatically generated and in some cases may not be 100% correct. If something doesn't work then please refer to the official Cinema 4D SDK documentation for more information.

Descriptions listed Alphabetically in Cinema 4D.
