    Hi...
    What's the difference with this three lenguajes?

    I think that the greatest differences is the application in Cinema4D:
    Xpress: Only expressions in C4D.
    Coffee: Expressions in C4D and PlugIn's.
    C++: Only PlugIn's.

    Please, someone kick me the ignorance, and especially to this question: To make a PlugIn, Which is Better coffee or C++?

    Greetings and Thank you.

    All your assumptions are right concerning Xpresso, Coffee and C++.

    The last question...well, search functions are lovely! ;)

    Hi!

    It depends on, what you want to do. XPressions are easy to create and Expressions in Coffee have a bigger range of dynamic than a C++ plugin.

    I mean, you are able to edit everything in realtime. In C++ you have to compile each edit, start C4D and take care of memory leaks.

    It really depends on the knowledge of your C++ skins, what you want to create (hole new features or combine already existing ones) and if the plugin is a common one, or only needed for one scene.

    Hope I helped you a little bit to look through the jungle.

    Bye :)

    Well, that´s not really true. For coffee, realtime is only in the sense of 'while c4d is running'. You are not able to really track what´s happening while execution of the script or plugin.

    In C++ you can edit everything in realtime while debugging, line by line, address by address. No need to restart c4d, you can effectively change your code while it executes. And much much more. COFFEE is not even comparable to what you can do in debugging in C++. :)

    Hi and Thanks ...

    I have read the entire Topic that said "3D Design" and I had become clear.

    I also became clear how difficult it is to start with C++, because everyone had problems to start.
    I will continue with coffee that I already have my first PlugIn ...

    Thank you.
