    Hi,

    I have a custom directx renderer that renders 3d models in realtime and handles pretty much everything including shaders. It's a separate standalone executable that automatically streams assets from a resource file which I am going to add as a plugin for my pipeline.

    This standalone will be executed by Cinema4d upon request and a window will popup but my main question is I want it snap or dock in to one of the C4D's viewports. I know that Maya and Softimage can do this already, I just don't know how to do it in Cinema4d. I've look through the documentation, and I still have no idea where to begin..

    Can anyone help me?

    What I'm looking for is something like HWND that my app can hook on to.

    I don't think this is possible but I have asked the developers.

    cheers,

    You could hide your application window and copy its content into a GeUserArea.
