InstanceMan for Cinema 4D

Download


What is this?

InstanceMan is a plugin for Cinema 4D that helps to make life with instance objects a little easier.
Before R20, there was another plugin around - InstanceVault, that used worked well in prior versions of Cinema 4D. Unfortunately, that plugin wasn't of much use in R20, so I decided to write a similar plugin - InstanceMan.
Besides having all that functionality in R20 again, I managed to extend and improve the overall functionality and stability.

All functions are explained below.
Happy instancing.
