Cinema 4D Version: 9.6
Platform: Windows ;
first I have to say I´m totally new to Plugin development. As I have a large number of clients who would like to see their products on their web pages as interactive 3D models. I´m thinking of writing my own viewpoint export plugin for Cinema. Viewpoint is now free of fees, you only need to buy Enliven for authoring. Bola vanished some years ago and there is no chance to get models from Cinema to Viewpoint without buying Polytrans. I am aware of other sollutions like turntool but most of them are either expensive or you have to export vrml first. Personally I don´t like to convert content between several file format. Is it possible for a noob like me to start such a project? How would you start?

You should have a look at the C++ SDK project (CINEMA4DSDK) and the STL.cpp example in there. It will show you how to make an export plugin using SceneSaverData. If you have experience in C++ or programming in general this will give you a start. Otherwise I'm afraid that this task will be quite advanced for a beginner's project.
