If you ever wanted to work with high and low resolution models in Cinema4D then this tip from Tim Clapham should come in handy.
Using the Instance Object combined with a simple Xpresso setup, Tim shows you how to create an object that allows you to work with a low polygon model and then swap this out for a high polygon version whenever you need to render or preview the final result.
This technique will keep your workflow streamlined, and allow you to perform tasks such as dynamics simulation and caching without the overhead of polygon heavy scenes. Once the caching is complete, you can switch out the object for the detailed version and render away.
Once created, this simple object will become a vital part of your Cinema4D library. You'll never know how you worked without it!
Kudos to Kai Pederson who originally showed Tim this trick.
