Plugin Identifiers

Plugin identifiers are necessity when creating Python or C++ plugins as each plugin must be registered with a unique identifier when Cinema 4D is booting. Scripts and scene elements usually do not require plugin identifiers as they do not have to be registered. Plugin identifiers can also be used to unambiguously store data in a document or scene element data container under the registered identifier.

Plugin identifier management has not yet been ported to the new forum. Please use the existing old Plugin Café system in the meantime. You still can login with your old forum login. New users who never had an account on the old forum must create an account there to be able to generate plugin identifiers. Picking the same user name or not in both forums will be irrelevant for merging your data of such new users in the future.
