Blender to C4D?

Recommended Posts

My dear artist friends

is it possible to use the structure of a blender node material and swap it in the cinema4d node material editor? I basically like to use some dds Materials and put it on a 3d spaceship model.

Literally importing the material nodes, no, that generally won't work in any 3d app. C4D has material nodes and an uber material for controlling them though which would be structured 95% the same as in blender.

It would have been possible (to some degree), if the Material Editor was exposed to python scripting.
You can just remap and recreate some connections. 

Unfortunately, After 3 versions of its release, Material Python API is still nowhere to be seen. 
No plans. No updates.
