How to Post Questions
maxon last edited by r_gigante
When posting questions please make sure to use the correct category.
- Cinema 4D Development for any questions about using the Cinema 4D APIs.
- Melange Development for any questions about using the Melange API.
- General programming and Plugins for any other questions and topics about plugin development not directly related to the Cinema 4D APIs.
Please add tags to your posts to help organizing the forum. Tags can be selected by a drop down list provided by the tagging button on the bottom/left of the composer. Tags are also filtered depending on the category where the post/topic is supposed to appear: different categories offer different tags.
For example, when posting in "Cinema 4D Development", you can add (but not limited to):
- R19, R20 : the used Cinema 4D version;
- microsoft windows, apple macos : the development environment;
- c++, python: the programming language/API;
or more generic labels like:
- plugin migration: porting older plugins to the Cinema R20 SDK;
- project setup: creating new project files using the projectdefinition.txt file;
- project tool: using the Project Tool;
- api + issue: issues with the API;
- documentation + issue: issues in the documentation;
- sdk + issue: issues in the example projects.
For example, when posting in "General Programming and Plugins", you can add (but not limited to):
- general programming: for programming questions not related to the Cinema 4D APIs (e.g. using complilers, libraries, etc.);
- jobs & collaboration : for development jobs or collaboration requests;
- showcase: for presenting completed plugins;
- c++, python: the programming language.
This forum uses Markdown. See commonmark.org/help/
Please use Markdown to format code like
SomeFunction()or a complete code block:
BaseObject* const cube = BaseObject::Alloc(Ocube); if (cube == nullptr) return maxon::OutOfMemoryError(MAXON_SOURCE_LOCATION);
