    I'm feeling kind of stupid right now. I just don't get why the plugin is not loaded. The .cdl is located
    in C4DPATH/plugins/my-plugin/build/my-plugin.cdl and it won't be loaded by Cinema. However, if I
    put it to C4DPATH/plugins/my-plugin/my-plugin.cdl it is loaded.

    What the? What's the matter? 😲

    Thanks in advance

    Seems like Cinema skips directories that are called "build"? Because if I rename it, the plugin is loaded.

    You are right. This is done for developer convenience.
    There are some more subdirectory names ignored on plugin start:
    coffee
    res
    resource
    source
    obj
    build
    api
    every subdir beginning with strings_ or _api
    every subdir ending on xcodeproj

    I'll have this info added to the SDK docs.
