Download & Installation

Download GitHub

Alternatively, head over the the releases page on GitHub and choose the latest release matching your operating system and Cinema 4D version. Extract the downloaded archvie to the Cinema 4D plugins directory and you’re done.

Note: Plugins are usually upwards compatible. An R15 build might work in R17, however, if there is also an R16 build, you should assume that the R15 version will not work in R16 and any newer versions. Native (non-Python) plugins are never downwards compatible.


The main language in English. When you downloaded the plugin, you may find additional downloads for a different language. This download contains a strings_xx (where xx stands for the language code) which you can place directly into the plugins “res” folder (where the strings_us folder already is).
