I created my very first C4D plugin, thanks to 'The COFFEE Book' :) I thought it would be a good idea sharing it with the c4d community.

The purpose of this (very small) plugin is to speed up the creating and applying of a checkerboard texture in Cinema 4D. When adjusting the UV coordinates, I often create a checkerboard material and apply it to the model which makes working with the UVs easier. To do this you have to create a new material and you have to create a new Checkerboard surface in the color channel. This material has to be applied to the object and finally you have to adjust the scale of the checkerboard. Plenty of unnecessary mouse clicks.
With this plugin creating and applying the checkerboard texture will be realised with 1 single mouse click. Adjusting the size of the checkerboard is done with a slider. You also have the possibility to chose between 3 different checkerboard textures.
This screenshot should make it clear what this plugin realizes
I know this sounds very unspectecular and you’re right, it is. But anyway, you might find it usefull so I made it available on my site.
