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.
