    Although I have experience in writing C, C++, and Java, I'm totally new at trying to write plugins for C4D (R8).  What do I need to download and where exactly do I find the SDK, documentation, etc.?
    I know that this is the right place (Plugin Cafe), but can only find online documentation so far.
    Thanks and expect general confusion on my end... :)

    Hi,
    you need a computer :) optimal would be a PC and MAC if you want to develop with C++.
    In this case you will need MSVC++ 6 for PC and Metrowerks Codewarrior 8 for MAC to compile with highest performance.
    You can also use Codewarrior on PC to compile for PC & MAC (Cross-compilation) but the code performance isn´t as good as on a MAC.
    Then get into the download section of the plugincafe and download the SDK Project files. You want to additionally download the SDK Documentation.
    That´s all you need. To test your plugins it would be an advantage if you owned Cinema 4D ;)
    Best

    Computer (check, I think) ;)
    MSVC++ 6.0 (check)
    Just got the SDK files and docs (check)
    Cinema 4D XL R8 (check) :)
    Alright, I will read through the documentation and fire away questions afterwards... :)
    Thanks, Samir,

    Sorry about that Samir,
    That was me posting as kuroyume to test out a problem that he was saying he had.   I should have checked the context of where I was issuing the test.
