Python is C4D’s second programming/scripting language. Python offers much more access than COFFEE, but not as much as C++. Python runs instantaneously on any available platform. Python has a lot of Internet resources available that make it the first choice for anything database or web-related.
Requirements : No additional tools are needed.
We are constantly working on improving the coverage of our Python API. If there’s anything special missing, please post it in the Cinema 4D Development category in our Plugin Café forum.
