This thread will be dedicated to any useful scripting and Coding resources.

Plugincafe - http://www.plugincafe.com

To start off with the fundamental one that everyone should use as often as possible is www.plugincafe.com (http://www.plugincafe.com) . This is Maxon's own SDK support forum and resource area! Though CGTalk is a great place to hang out, and often very useful for getting community support, nothing can match the dedicated free support from Maxon itself, if there are ever any questions that the CGTalk community can't answer, then Plugin-Cafe is where to go.

PluginCafe is also the place to go for the COFFEE & C++ SDK Documentation, files, and plugin ID's.

For casual Cinema 4D developers the support is free even if you don't own C4D. Just download the C4D demo and the SDK comes with it, and the support team will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding it (though do note they're not there to teach you how to code).

Bonkers XPRESSO - http://www.bonkers.de

Our very own Srek's website, full of great examples of XPRESSO and dynamics. A must for anyone learning Thinking Particles or XPRESSO. See an XPRESSO master at work!

PerAnders Tutorials - http://www.peranders.com/tutorials/

My personal set of tutorials, including a the beginners COFFEE SDK primer to help you learn how to use the COFFEE SDK and it's Documentation and the COFFEE Node primer (as well as a number of XPRESSO tutorials).

Devmaster - http://www.devmaster.net/

A great resource for graphics coders everywhere

Flipcode - http://www.flipcode.com/articles/articles_summary.shtml

Now sadly closed, the archives remain open though as another great graphics and algorithms resource.

The (I hope) long awaited book teaching C.O.F.F.E.E. is finally finished http://www.3dattack.net/forum/images/smilies/imported/smile.gif
At last, something written in layman terms (as much as possible, of course), teaching you how to use the scripting language of Cinema4D.

You can get it here:

A very special thank you to Tavy and Tank, from 3dattack.net, for their support and help, in this endeavour.

I've now added a Wiki to my website with more Python and COFFEE tutorials, scripts and tips for all to use and edit as a community learning resource.

Great resource from Paul Bourke regarding many bread-and-butter linear algebra/trig questions:

I finally got off my duff and created a web page with some C++ and Python plugins.

The Python R14 SDK Docs are now available on my site for ease of access (I took the liberty of adjusting the CSS slightly to keep the document search bar available at all times during navigation) http://peranders.com/wiki/Python/C4DSDK

hey,

thanks a lot, i really like having the sdk files as an online version and use them a lot,. when
the R13 online sdk on your page stopped working a week ago i thought you had given up
this really helpful service, so i am even happier now, that you brought back this service.

happy rendering,
