New Send to CINEMA 4D Command

Recommended Posts

Just starting with VW 2011. Where is the "New Send to CINEMA 4D Command" or do I need to spend more Money?

Its in the File menu. Note that there is also an Export Cinema 4D command in the Export sub-menu.

From Help:

CINEMA 4D (3D only) (Renderworks required)

Exports 3D objects in the unified view (Vectorworks Design Series required) or active layer to the .c4d format, for use in CINEMA 4D. Vectorworks layers are exported as container objects in the CINEMA 4D scene hierarchy. Vectorworks classes become CINEMA 4D layers, allowing visibility to be controlled across the scene. Layer names, object names, and object types are preserved.

An additional command, Send to CINEMA 4D (3D only) is available from the File menu. When CINEMA 4D is already installed, exports the file (3D objects only) to .c4d format, launches the CINEMA 4D application, and opens the file. During export, the Send to CINEMA 4D dialog box opens. Select whether to create a new scene or merge into the current scene.

I'm looking but I don't see it. Do I need to add it from the "Work Space Editor".

I've tried using both, "Architect & Designer" modes and I still don't see it.

Do you have Renderworks? From the Help text it looks like those options are only available when you also have Renderworks.

Yes I do have Designer w/Renderworks. I'm downloading the update now. Maybe it's installed in the update.

I don't know what the problem is then because for me the options come up in all of the Workspaces - even Fundamentals.

I looks like you've opened the file in VW 2010 instead of VW 2011
