CINEMA 4D has one of the best documented APIs among 3D applications, as well as working example plugin projects and an active developer community. However, there are some things that are hard to understand for newbies, and even for experienced developers some aspects of the CINEMA 4D API remain unknown.

On this blog, we publish tips, hints, and general example code for C++ and Python, to help plugin developers get started and improve their projects.
