Learning python


#1

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.?


#2

Hi, have you checked the Maxon SDK Support page?
developers.maxon.net


#3

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.


#4

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


#6

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.


#7

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