        Hello,

    I am trying to reactivate an old plugin from R7 in R9.5, but Cinema4D has changed quite a bit. The old plugin could manipulate data of Primitives, e.g. a cylinder, but the whole class and variable structure has changed now. The old

    PrimitiveObject
    

    class does not exist anymore, but

    CylinderObject
    

    ,

    CubeObject
    

    , etc. are now classes of their own ...

    Does anybody know where to get a list of Cinema4D-internal classes and variables and their names for R9?

    Cheers, Juergen

    good idea ... good have thought about that one myself :-)

    thanks!

    (However, a formatted list to be included in the documentation would be an idea as well ...)

    Although COFFEE and the C++ SDK are definitely different, the C++ SDK Docs mention the source file from which each class, structure, constants, etc. can be located. This may help reduce the search time if you can find it in the Docs and then go directly to the header or cpp file. Most of the time, the required values are specified in the headers related to that class.

    That said, each update to the SDK has a list of changes. Sadly, this does require going through the different SDK Doc versions to find where the relevant changes occurred to get the details.

    It is a huge amount of information and it takes quite a while to find and understand it (after about four years, I may have covered 25% of what's there). :)
