I’m rather excited about a plugin I’ve created. Because it’s not like anything I’ve seen anyone do before in C4D plugins.
It uses what I call a “Smart Dialog System with Local Storage”.
The user can stay right in the dialog and use the Tree GUI. Or select items in the scene view. And the Dialog is smart enough to change it’s GUI. Depending on what object is selected. And if it has a special storage tag on it.
Plus all of the data is stored locally in the scene file, in tags.
No messy external files and folders to deal with. I absolutely love this way of working.
I developed it in C++ mainly because the Tree GUI is not available for Python users yet. So the plugin is only PC compatible. Sorry mac people.
But as always. I’ve included the C++ source code with it. That’s really the most important thing I wanted to share with you guys.
That way you guys can learn from the code. And change it as you like.Or make your own plugin based on the plugin framework I’ve setup for you.
The plugin can be downloaded from my plugins page:https://sites.google.com/site/scottayersmedia/plugins
Here’s a quick video using it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wq22fMK3EU
