i want to connect an arduino with c4d via the serial port - so i downloaded Pyserial, installed it (no errors in the terminal (i'm using a mac)), but if I just add "import serial" to a working script it says "Importerror: No module named serial"...
The installation seemed to be fine, so i wonder why cinema doesn't like pyserial... 
I use R14 and tried it with Pyserial 2.7 and 2.5. It's a Macbook Pro Retina with Mac OSX 10.8.4

Any ideas? Thanks

are you sure you did install for the c4d python installation and not just your standard python installation ?

I didn't thought that there's a difference... how do i install it for cinema?
(sorry, i spent many hours in googling, but didn't find very much about this topic..)

to use 3d party modules with the c4d python you have to install them to  {USER_FOLDER}/library/python/packages/{osx/win32/win64}.
