Learning python


I took an Udemy course on python and it as some help, but also there was a lot of info I probably would never use.

So the question is, Is there a source for learning Python as it pertains to C4D? Online, books, etc.?


Hi, have you checked the Maxon SDK Support page?


There’s an fxphd course but it’s for r14 I think. Should still be plenty of relevant stuff in there.

http://www.c4dapt.com/ is another option. Lots of advanced stuff, including a decent amount of python.


Few resources are exposed in https://developers.maxon.net/docs/Cinema4DPythonSDK/html/manuals/introduction/python_resources.html?highlight=resource
And if you don’t know where to look at ask on https://plugincafe.maxon.net/.


Right now my biggest problem is knowing and understanding the differences between coffee and python


Don’t learn COFFEE, it was removed in r20.
The main difference is COFFEE was scripting language made by Maxon while python is a standard and open source one.


I have several files that were made using coffee and i need to change them
