On the problems of C + + novice

  • I want to write the simplest plug-in in C + +

    But I've already configured the SDK

    I went through some tutorials and found that the vs version is updated a lot. I don't know how to configure it

    I would like to ask vs2017 and R21 for a tutorial on writing the simplest plug-in

    It's better to have a video tutorial so that I can understand my English faster. It's not very good

  • Hello and welcome,

    before posting, please make yourself familiar with this forum's rules: How to Post Questions.

    Did you already have a look at Getting Started: Introduction?

    best wishes,

  • @dada I would not recommend using the C++ SDK for a C++ novice. The Python SDK is much easier to get something done quickly and get used to the API.

  • @s_bach Thank you in advance for your reply
    I refer to what you said and went to the SDK documentation
    I can't successfully create a cheapest plugin of my own
    I want to ask
    Are there any tutorials that are particularly suitable for newbies in C ++, I found links to some resources on this forum
    But the tutorials that are clicked are older versions and are not applicable to c4dR21 and Visual Studio 2017
    I hope there is a video tutorial that teaches me how to configure Visual Studio 2017 and successfully create the first plugin of my own
    I can pay to buy this video tutorial
    I would like to use what I learned to write my own C ++ plugin

  • @rsodre
    I will already use python to create scripts and my own plugins
    But I want to write my own script in C ++
    Thank you for your reply

  • Hello,

    there aren't any official video tutorials regarding plugin development.

    If you are new to C++, I strongly suggest to learn the language and how to use Visual Studio before diving into Cinema 4D plugin programming.

    When you are familiar with C++ and Visual Studio, the first thing you should do is to compile the provided example projects. Especially the "microsdk" show the basics of a simple project. How to build the example projects is described here: Getting Started: Introduction.

    What specific issues do you encounter while compiling the examples?

    best wishes,
