C4D Materials to Redshift Shader Script

I want to write a script/plugin that converts C4D Materials (Color, Reflectance, Transparency, Lumiance, Normal, Disp) to Redshift Shaders.

Does anyone have experience creating Redshift shaders/nodes with Python?

I just spoke with the devloper from Redshift who does the C4D plugin and he said to look at the .h files in the /res folder and that their SDK is getting updated so it's not the best time to start on this.  But I'll continue to hack around.

As you already found I made a Redshift wrapper arround the current redshift API wich is pretty limited (only usefull for get the NodeMaster) and Cinema 4D (GvPort/GvNode etc... :)

You can find more informations here https://github.com/gr4ph0s/C4D_RedshiftWrapper_API or https://gr4ph0s.github.io/C4D_RedshiftWrapper_API/
Note that I changed the licence, which is now under MIT, which is more liberal than GPL ;)

Basicly I made this wrapper for make a custom converter, which worked fine, but I will not share it.

But excepted you got some request about how to iterate Cinema 4D material / Shader I encourage you to post into the redshift forum since Maxon, can't do more for you.

Hi Matt,

just want to confirm, gr4ph0s is right, MAXON can't help with 3rd party interfaces, sorry.
