    Are there metadata linked to a cinema4d file? 
    How can we extract them in a txt file or in XML or in any other format so that they can be used further?

    to get information like the author, copyright or creation date you can access the document's data via GetDocumentData().

      data =  doc.GetDocumentData(c4d.DOCUMENTSETTINGS_DOCUMENT)  
      print data[c4d.DOCUMENT_INFO_AUTHOR]  
      print data[c4d.DOCUMENT_INFO_PRGCREATOR_NAME]  

    Then you can write this information to a file like you want. If you want to access this data from another application you have to use the C++ Melange library.

    Best wishes,
