Cinema 4D Exporter Update

Good news for Cinema 4D users! We have updated the Cinema 4D exporter to support animations so you can now use it to upload your FBX files.

The Sketchfab Exporter makes it super easy for you to share your C4D creations and work in progress on Sketchfab. It lets you publish your static and animated models straight from Cinema 4D to Sketchfab in just a few clicks. Here is a quick video:

How it works

  • Open your scene in Cinema 4D.
  • Go to File → Save project with Assets… to collect your model and textures together.
  • Open the Sketchfab Exporter plugin from the Plugin menu.
  • Enter a title, description, and tags, and mark it as Private if necessary.
  • Enter your API token, which you can save for later under Options.
  • Click Publish!

Using the Cinema 4D exporter will tag your model with ‘Cinema4D’ so it shows up in the gallery and will also add an “Uploaded with Cinema 4D” icon to your model page, like so:

As always, we always welcome your feedback, so if you do come across any issues, let us know.

Looking forward to seeing your Cinema4D animations!

If “super easy” means it never works, then yes, it SUPER EASY!
