  2. RingLoop

    RingLoop is a small Python plugin which allows to extend selected edges into ring or loop.
    An optional "skip" option can be provided, which will skip the number of edges during creation of a ring or loop from the original selected edge(s)
     
    Original thread:

    New version 0.4 (see changelog)
     
    Does probably work with R16 - R21, not sure about S22, will definitely not work with R23.

  3. Hide non-surrounding polygons

    This script will hide polygons that have no selected points.
    Can be useful if you have an high polycount object which you want to edit, but there is just too many polygons to see what you're doing.
    Select some points you want to work on, execute the script ... and all polygons not sharing those selected points get hidden.

  4. TINA - Texture Importer n Assigner

    TINA (Texture Importer 'n' Assigner) is a Python plugin to automate importing multiple textures into appropriate material channels.
    The plugin was originally created to import the different texture sets created in Substance Painter, into Cinema4D's native materials before the node-based materials where introduced in R20.
     
    Plugin is compatible with R17 - R21. Hasn't been tested on S22, nor with node-based materials.
    Will definitely not work with R23.

  5. UVisland Outliner

    UVisland Outliner is a Python plugin which does detect the UV island boundaries and turns them into edge selection. The plugin will process all selected polygon objects.
    A new option introduced in version 1.1 (available via cog wheel) provides a way to ignore the outer edges of an open-ended mesh.
     
    In general you would want to turn all UV seams into edge selections. In case of open-ended mesh objects, the mesh boundaries would be detected as UV boundaries ... while these aren't actually UV seams. The new option will (by default) allow to ignore these boundaries.
    On the other hand you might want to turn all UV island boundaries into edges, no matter if these are UV seams or not. You can do so by unchecking the new option.

  6. Set New Selection

    I have been using "Set Selection" on many occasions. Be it to create selection tags to apply different materials to an object.
    Or simply as kind of a clipboard to temporarily hold a set of selected polygons during modeling.
    However, in most cases I do not have enough with a single selection tag. It can happen that during a modeling session I need a few temporary selections, to be picked up later in the process when I need to work here and there on a model.
    As such, in the past I had a love-hate relationship with the "Set Selection" command. It was a very useful tool, except that it required me to always deselect the newly created selection tag before I could create another one. Reason for this is that if you perform a "Set Selection" with a selected tag, the newly selected items would be merged into the selected tag ... instead of being created in their own separate tag.
    I mostly use the Commander to quickly type "set se" and press enter. Or I would add the "Set Selection" icon into a modeling palette and dock it in the layout.
    Still, in order to be able to create multiple selection tags, I would need to execute the command, deselect the tag, and proceed with creating a new selection.
     
    NOT ANYMORE ...
    It finally annoyed me so much that I spend some time writing a script to provide the functionality to perform a "Set New Selection" ... NOT overwriting the current selection tag. This script will create a new selection tag of its own, use an appropriate unique name (just as the native "Set Selection"), store the selected items be it polygons, edges or points.
    I call it: Set New Selection.
    The good thing is, that you can execute this script from the Commander, or drag the icon into a palette and dock it into the layout.
    AND it can coexist next to the native "Set Selection". Which means you can still use the original behaviour if you want to overwrite a selection tag, or use the new one to create separate tags each time the script is executed.
    Isn't that neat? Yes, I thought so too!
     
    Does probably work with R16 - R21, not sure about S22, will definitely not work with R23.

  7. Points to circle

    I don't think this one needs much explanation, the title says it all.
    The script repositions selected points into a circle.

  8. InstanceMan

    InstanceMan is a plugin for Cinema 4D that helps to make life with instance objects a little easier.
    Before R20, there was another plugin around - InstanceVault, that used worked well in prior versions of Cinema 4D. Unfortunately, that plugin wasn't of much use in R20, so I decided to write a similar plugin - InstanceMan.
    Besides having all that functionality in R20 again, I managed to extend and improve the overall functionality and stability.
    All functions are explained below.
    Happy instancing.
     
    SELECT
    Select all instances of the same reference object.
    Ctrl: Selects nested instances. Shift: Also select reference object.  
    SELECT BROKEN
    Select all unconnected instances.
    Shift: Adds to current selection  
    CREATE
    Creates new instances or copies existing ones.
    Ctrl: Converts current object selection to instances and sets the last selected object as reference. Shift: Moves all children into the new reference object.  
    RENAME
    Renames all selected instances according to their reference object.
    Ctrl: Also renames nested instances. Shift: Enumerates the selected instances.  
    SPLIT
    Relinks selected instances. The last selected instance is converted to a new reference object.
    Ctrl: Pops up a dialog to rename the new reference object.  
    MAKE INSTANCE EDITABLE
    Extends Cinema 4Ds Make editable. Converts render- and multi-instances.
    Ctrl: Converts nested instances directly to the root object. Shift: Removes children of the instance. Alt: Don't inherit children of the reference object.  
    SWAP
    Swap a selected instance with its reference object and back. Allows to edit an instance in place.
    Ctrl: Additionally swap children.  
    FRAME SELECTED OBJECTS
    Replaces Cinema 4Ds Frame selected objects. Render- and multi-instances are also respected.
     
    FRAME SELECTED ELEMENTS
    Replaces Cinema 4Ds Frame selected elements. Render- and multi-instances are also respected.
     
    SETTINGS
    Open InstanceMan settings
    Default instance mode: Set your desired instance mode for newly created instances.

  10. ABCLoop Tool

    Hello
     
    ABC Loop is a very simple Xpresso tool that allow us to loop an abc file inside Cinema4d. 
    Sometimes we need to loop only a certain portion of the abc sequence. With this simple tool we can create that sequence by selecting the starting frame in the alembic and a loop time span. The Xpresso does the rest. 
    I've tested the tool and so far is working fine.
     
    Instructions: The scene file contains two null with additional controls. A simple and a more complex version. 
    Each ABC file needs one of command null to generate a loop.
     
    Hope it helps
    Cheers
    Joao Batista
