    Today my first iPhone app is released in Apple's AppStore. It's a 3D Mouse. The communication with C4D was created with a Python script. This script makes the connection via an UPD socket and REST.

    So, Python and C4D are fine! It's fast enough to handle real time inputs via an UDP socket.😄

    You will find more information and a demonstration video at http://www.dongleware.com/i3dmouse.php

    I'm really really curious about how you've done the communication between Python and the iPhone. But I don't think your gonna show source code, do you ?

    The part of the script which implements a threaded UDP communication is very simple and based on chapter 20.17.4.3 of this documentation: http://docs.python.org/library/socketserver.html

    To use an UDP connection instead of a TCP connection you have just change

    server = ThreadedTCPServer((HOST, PORT), ThreadedTCPRequestHandler)  
      
    to  
      
    server=UDPServer(("0.0.0.0",UDPPort),UDPHandler)  
      
    and e.g.  
      
    class UDPHandler(SocketServer.BaseRequestHandler) :  
      def handle(self) :  
        data=self.request[0].strip()  
        print "%s wrote:" % self.client_address[0]  
        print data  
        cmd=json.loads(data)  
        if cmd['action']=="camMove":  
          ....  
      
      
    So the plugin gets the asynchronous packages in methode **UDPHandler::handle** from where you can handle the json string.  
      
    Very simple.
