An Introduction to Assets and Databases in Cinema 4D

Jonas Pilz covers everything you need to know about assets and databases in C4D.

Cinema 4D added a new Asset Browser in S24, giving users a way to browse and search for things within a library. The new browser makes it possible to search online or local asset databases, including a vast library of assets available to C4D subscribers. There is a relationship between the assets and databases, and this new C4D tip shows us all we need to know.

This tutorial from Jonas Pilz (@jonaspilz3d) covers how to create Assets and create and mount Databases and gives new users an idea of organizing custom Databases.
