I whould like to create a export script from C4D into a self created format for use in a game. I have googled for long time, but I cannot find a place to begin. Maybe some really really basic code to start from whould be great.

C4D uses COFFEE as its script language and it does support import/export scripts (FilterPlugin).
Go to the download page and grab either the COFFEE_SDK_95.zip (HTML) or COFFEE_SDK_95.chm (Windows help file). There are examples to help you get started.

well... now I've got a menu entry like "file -> export -> MyExport", and I even figured out, how to write into the resulting file, but i failed to find out, how to get information about the scene i want to save. I'm using
class MyFilter: FilterPlugin
// many other things go here
I think, the information i need is somewhere inside the MyFilter::Save function parameters, but the filterPlugin class isnt documented in the SDK...

The 'scene' is the 'doc' argument. A BaseDocument represents the scene (objects, tags, materials, shaders, etc.).
So, say you want to save objects from the scene. You take 'doc' and start traversing the object tree:
var op = doc->GetFirstObject();
// Do your thing here (call a function to export data for instance)
// Traverse object tree (scene graph)
op = op->GetDown();
op = op->GetUp();
if (op) op = op->GetNext();
You'll find more useful information in the SDK Help forum.

hm... me again :
I've been working with "COFFEE SDK 95.zip" for a while now, but it seems very incomplete for use as a reference, so I tried out the "COFFEE SDK 95.chm", but that file is corrupt (and even looks too small, 683 KB). Any idea where to get a working one, oder what other reference to use?

I just downloaded the file and it is working without problems. It is a compiled HTML file (CHM) thats why it is so small. If you are a Mac user you need a special CHM reader application to read CHM files.

accuratly speaking, I am a Linux user. C4D runs on windows which runs inside a virtual machine... but neither there nor on a "real" windows it could be displayed correctly. Anyway, I solved the probelm by installing a chm reader on linux, and it works
weird thing... but nevermind anymore *g*, thx
