    Hi guys,

    I'm using an SDK that was written for Python 2.7 and up but Cinema 4D r13 has version 2.6. Is there a way to update to 2.7? Ideally, I'd like to change ONLY the python version to stay within Cinema's script manager. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    I'm afraid it's not possible to change the Python version that comes with CINEMA.

    Hi, any Python replacement wil lead to an unstable C4D or crashes. So please still use Py2.6. Does Py2.7 support something special that you need?

    Cheers, Sebastian

    I'm developing a plugin for Cinema 4D to take advantage of the Leap Motion device (www.leapmotion.com). We see really fun possibilities for VFX and definitely want to find a way to integrate it into Cinema for serious use. The problem for us to solve, it seems, is that their SDK supports python 2.7. I hit a wall but intend on finding another way. We love Cinema too much to let this go. :) lol

    Did you ever figure this out? I had the same issue. Adding the Leap library crashes C4D. One would have to update the Python library to go any further. It too brought my development to a grinding halt.

    You could either make a request in the LEAP Developer Forums, use C++ or check out SWIG and
    try to compile your own Python-LEAP interface (not garuanteed to work, just a thought).

    Best,
