    Hi,
    I'm using the Melange library to load Cinema 4D files, and I'm looking for a way to convert the entire
    scene to polygons (splines, primitives, etc...).
    I've noticed that the C++ SDK library has a function called Polygonize() in the BaseDocument class, but
    nothing like that exists in the Melange library.  I can't find any conversion tools.
    Any suggestions?

    Melange can't polygonize objects as it is no full C4D installation with millions of lines of code plus external plugins.

    C4D however allows you to write any scene with (additional) polygonal information. Use the option "Save Polygons for Melange" on the Files tab of the R12 prefs to save any scene with the polygonized data.

    Ok, thanks, that's a shame, as having no convert-to-poly support severely limits its usage as a conversion tool
    to other formats.  Being a stand-alone library is what drew my initial interest, but I don't think I can use it now
    without poly conversion.  Hopefully, this will change in the future.
