How do you view a list or in some way know that a plugin was loaded in Cinema 4D? A friend of mine sent me a plugin he made and wanted me to try it, but I can't tell if it's even loaded.

Not sure if this is the right place for this question.

Thanks in advance!

    There is a plugins folder in your installation directory, all installed plugins are listed there.

  • @poor Thanks for the help! Actually I was wondering if there is a way to see in the application itself because sometimes I put plugins in the "plugins" directory and I don't notice anything different in C4D May 25, 2015 at 1:09

    I'd like to help, but this depends on the plugin and how it is written... If you know the name, search for a tutorial or the manual to find images and you'll see in which area/viewport its used.

There is a plugins folder in your installation directory. Whether you are on mac or a windows machine, all installed plugins are listed there.

Search for a tutorial, the manual or some images to identify in which area or viewport it's used.
