How do you import multiple .objs at once

Recommended Posts



I've been trying unsuccessfully for the past hour to import multiple files into one project. The only way I have found is to use Merge, but that is one at a time. It won't let me select multiple files, and when I drag and drop files into the Objects tab (top r) it makes each one into its own window.


I'm with a neuroscience lab and our meshes are quite complex - C4D seems to default import them to >1 km long, so I manually decrease the size, also for each mesh. There must be a better way! Trying to get a hundred neurons or so into one window. Any help would be appreciated! 


Here's a screenshot from an in-browser reconstruction tool of some of the cells we're trying to showcase. This is called the central complex and it comes from a fly brain. 




Thank you!
