One Liner Console?

  • Hi,

    Is there a way to have a one-liner console docked in the layout such as in Maya?
    You can see an illustration of the feature here:

    For developing/debugging a script, I guess it make sense to open both script manager and console.
    But for my daily usage of just executing script where sometimes I missed out a parameter and what not, I would just prefer a one line of code showing me the problem.

    Is this possible in C4D? Just that simple one line console?

    Thank you for looking at my problem.

  • Hi,

    the term "one liner console" is a bit ambiguous ;)

    1. If you mean by that a console with the height of one line: Well, just scale the window. You cannot turn off all the fluff that comes with the console window to get a ultra compact output like in Maya however.
    2. If you mean by that the ability to use Cinema's Python instance as a live interpreter, then open the Advanced menu on the console and hit Command Line. It will pop out a command line window into which you can type code which is then immediately interpreted when you hit Enter.

    Yes, I was looking for #1 item that "console window to get a ultra compact output like in Maya" :(
    Anyhow, thanks for confirmation.

  • I can only confirm it's not possible in Cinema 4D.

    The thing that matches the more is the Command Line windows.
