is the enhanced commercial version of my popular (and free) Riptide
Wavefront .obj file plugin for Maxon's Cinema 4D to extend it's .obj file Import/Export capabilities.
The Pro version was based on the feature-set of version 1.9 of the free plugin, but has been enhanced to include a multitude of new options and features along with some bug fixes and added stability along the way. A 30-day Free Trial
version of the plugin is available in the downloads
section (just enter DEMO
as a license / registration key).
The original Riptide provided a good set of features and allowed a lot of flexibility not found in other implementations. Riptide Pro
takes this idea to the next level, providing a host of new (and reworked) features, more flexibility and the ability to create 'Preset' configurations, allowing you to easily switch between setups for various conditions. You can think of Riptide Pro
as 'Riptide on Steroids'.
The latest version even includes 'Multi-File' export options that can either split the scene up in various ways or export baked animation files (with sequenced filenames). With these options, you can also tell the plugin what to do when a duplicate filename is generated (overwrite, prompt, increment sequence, etc.).
For additional screen-shots and details, see the documentation links and Feature Comparison chart below.

As mentioned above, this plugin is is available from the downloads section (links below) - please note that there are separate packages available, depending on which version of Cinema 4D you are using (starting with R9.6).
