Hi @Fowdy , thanks for reaching out to us.
I prefer to answer inline to your points:
when I opened the link, it redirects me to a wall of code. Do I copy + paste it in Python's IDLE and make a .py out of it? how do I install it exactly
You can save the page straight from the browser as a .py file (let's say you save it on the Desktop)
I am confused which one I should download here
No need to download anything: Cinema 4D R23 already ships with the c4dpy executable (c4dpy.exe
by "Cinema 4D folder" which one do you mean? like the exact path?
I do something like this right?
Assuming that Cinema 4D has been installed in the default path proposed by the installer in
C:\Program Files\Maxon Cinema 4D R23 just open you the Command Line (not PowerShell) and type:
C:\> "C:\Program Files\Maxon Cinema 4D R23\c4dpy.exe" %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\get-pip.py
Upon the pip installation ends gracefully, you can install your pynput module typing
C:\> "C:\Program Files\Maxon Cinema 4D R23\c4dpy.exe" -m pip install pynput
Finally with regard to the question about the code, I can't judge since we don't support or advice external python modules, but by a brief look I doubt that code will work in a script. It could be much better if you could better explain your final goal and see if it can be achieved with native C4D API toolset.
