  • hello,

    thanks for reaching us and welcome to this forum.
    I've moved your thread to the general programming as there's no question specific to Cinema 4D.

    I would suggest to start to read our python documentation specially our manual list

    If you never learned python, i would suggest to start learning python first. There's is a lot of place on internet to learn it :)

    We also have the c++ help, that contain a lot of manual that explains lot of things.

    There's several place where you can include python, see our documentation.

    For your project you need to think about what kind of plugin you need.
    We also have a lot of examples on github

    Also use our search tool on this forum, you will find a lot of information.

    You can always ask a question on this forum on a specific function like "how to update a vertex map ?".

    Cheers,
    Manuel
