How to Create an Automatic Plane Generator for Cinema 4D Using Python

Expresso Mechanic TV shows how to use a Python tag to create planes from images in C4D.

Have you ever wanted to drag an image into the Cinema 4D viewport and have it make a plane and apply that image? You can do this with Python. This new tutorial from the Expresso Mechanic shows how to use a Python tag to create an automatic plane generator.

The generator can make a plane and apply a texture tag to the plane all in one shot. The tutorial also shows how to use User Data to get some control over the positions of the planes along all three axes.
