I tried it the hard way...I thought don't ask before you read a lot...but after one week working with the SDK I am quite frustrated.
First I read the SDK examples and tried to get some insight how I really work with the SDK - but my progress is sooo small.
The problem is - where to start ?
Normally it always works this way -> I want to realize something - but how do I find it in the SDK ? It seems to comlex - what I doing wrong (I can program in C++).
I learned programming with COFFEE - and had some quite good tutorials and books, so it was quite easy after the basics were clear - it was explained step by step. The SDK don't help very much, at least not me.
Is there a tutorial where e.g. is explained things in the following way:
1. We want to write a plugin in C++ (C4d API 8.2) that does the following.
2. First we have to know...this we are doing because...etc...
Can anybody help with really GOOD tutorials and well documented source examples ?
