    Is it possible to release plugins made with python? I mean, "release" in terms of hiding the source code and let people pay to unlock the full plugin?

    Where should I start for all this?

    Sure, I'm doing this right now.
    Just encrypt the source into a .pypv file inside C4D.

    ...Yea, I know that a determined hacker can 'listen' to the process and catch the brief instant the original decrypted source is in memory, but you'll never stop everything.

    Yes, that is right.
    About the encryption, it is performed by the "Source Protector..." command, in the Script menu.
    I always try to provide .pypv (for releases 15 and 16) and .pype files (for releases pre-15) as there are still many people using older versions.
