  1. Dear Adam,

    It’s Marco from London and I am a C4D user.
    I have seen you published the book Maya Python.
    Considering I should start from scratch with the code, does it make sense to learn from your book and convert the knowledge to C4D?
    Because at moment I can’t find any Python for C4D book.

    Many Thanks,
    Regards.

    M.

  2. Thanks for getting in touch, Marco! Unfortunately I don’t know how far that would get you. While the first couple of chapters introduce basic Python concepts, they’re really optimized for someone coming from a MEL scripting background. The rest of the book is pretty specific to Maya’s architecture and APIs. You might try asking on e.g., http://tech-artists.org/ but in general just starting with a good, general purpose Python book serves many people well. Even if there’s a lack of C4D-specific resources out there, it would give you some basic literacy to more effectively navigate C4D’s Python APIs, documentation, etc. Good luck!
