A look at the Python SDK, documentation and how to write a simple object plugin for Cinema 4D. This isn't so much a step by step instruction guide as it is me commenting on how I wrote the plugin, which files are required to set up your own UI and where to find the right documentation. Together with the source code I hope to give you guys a starting point from where to explore the SDK and possibilities of the Python API.
I've put the source files here: http://www.908video.de/lab_project/tutorial-c4d-python-sdk-and-plugins/
inFORM is a Dynamic Shape Display that can render 3D content physically, so users can interact with digital information in a tangible way. inFORM can also interact with the physical world around it, for example moving objects on the table's surface. Remote participants in a video conference can be displayed physically, allowing for a strong sense of presence and the ability to interact physically at a distance. inFORM is a step toward our vision of Radical Atoms: tangible.media.mit.edu/vision/
