1. Working with Visual C++ is there a easy way to secure downward compatibility to C4D 6.3 ???
2. Which Plugins are faster/more efficient : C++ or Coffee Plugins - and where do I get a compiler for Coffee ??? And what is it with Expressions ? They are only interpreted and slow, right ?
3. Sorry, for this question (I will read soon more when I finished the priorities) but, can somebody give me an impression about Xpresso ? Is it a real alternative to C++ plugins ? Is it just interpreted (slow) or compiled (fast)...etc...
4. Even after convertying the sdk/api files from Unix to Dos format I can't successfully compile the sdk plugin examples with C++ - there is still one bug. I don't know what the line is doing, but I commeted it out and now it works - but still I have a bad feeling. Will there soon (when ???) be a new C4D point release fixing this problem ??? How much energy does Maxon use to care for the Plugin Development - because it still looks slightly buggy and not optimal documented...I still haven't found a hook to get into it, despite the fact, I know C4D very well...
