How to make Plugins / Scripts


I’m interested in the creation of simple Plugins for Cinema 4D and I’m wondering how to get into it.

What is the best way to start? Are there any tutorials, learning ressources or books available?

Best regards,


Check out PluginCafe where you will find the SDK documentation for both COFFEE and C++ as well as support forums. The projects for building C++ plugins are in your plugins folder already containing many examples, COFFEE examples are available from PluginCafe, and for simple scripts you will find examples there and here in the scripting subforum.


I recommend this great serie of tutorials done by Rui Batista. Great introduction to COFFEE.


Thank you guys. I think the COFFEE-book looks really interesting :wink:
