Product Details:

Morph Mill is a set of plugins designed to assist in the creation and/or editing of Morph Meshes in MAXON's Cinema 4D.
 
The plugin is designed to work with R10.1 or later, on both Mac and PC (both 32bit and 64bit). A 30-day Free Trial version of the plugin is available in the downloads section (just enter DEMO as a license / registration key).
 
The product includes:

MeshMap - a Tag Plugin to help shape-match / shrinkwrap one mesh onto another, including a feature to help restore the mesh topology when that process gets messy.
UnDeform - a Tag Plugin to help in the creation of Joint-Controlled-Morphs (or Joint-Corrective-Morphs), also known as JCM for short. This plugin is a usefull solution to problems encountered when using Cinema 4D's unwieldy Deformed Editing mode.
Remap Point Order - a Menu Plugin that can be used to re-order the Points/Vertices of one or several mesh(es) to match another.
Split By Group - a Menu Plugin to split a full/welded mesh up into individual body-part group meshes (typically used by Poser for Morph Targets) - while preserving Vertex-Ordering in the process.
Split By Region - a Menu Plugin to split a full/welded mesh up into individual meshes based on Polygon Selections tracked by the Region Tag.
Split By Material - a Menu Plugin to split a full/welded mesh up into individual meshes based on Polygon Selections tracked by the Texture Tags pn the mesh.
Split By Connected Polys - a Menu Plugin to split a full/welded mesh up into individual meshes based on polygon connections (similar to how 'Select Connected' works).
Group Tag - the Group Tag is used by the above Split by Group command to identify which polygon selection tags should be considered groups [NOTE: This tag only shows up if you don't already have Riptide or Riptide Pro installed].
Region Tag - the Region Tag is used by the above Split by Region command to identify which polygon selection tags should be considered regionss [NOTE: This tag only shows up if you don't already have Riptide or Riptide Pro installed].
 

...Detailed descriptions of the various plugin elements (including a tutorial) are available in the online user documentation. This HTML documentation is also included in the package and is viewable via one of the plugin's menu options.
 
Possibly just as important, is what this product (specifically) does not do...
 
As mentioned, this product is designed to create and/or edit morph meshes, but it does not (currently, at least) alter any data inside Morph Tags or PoseMixer Tags or... any other tag designed to store/handle those morphs. Part of this is due to the fact that the Software Developer Kit (SDK) provided by MAXON for plugin developers does not (yet) provide programatic access to some of these tags - so the plugin simply has no means of modifying that data.
 
The other factor of this design is... there are multiple methods/tools available for creating/using morphs within Cinema 4D (Morph Tag, PoseMixer, etc), including plugins from 3rd-party Developers (interPoser Pro, Cactus Dan's tools, etc). Individual artists may have thier own preferences and/or workflows, so the focus of this set of tools is in generating the raw data/meshes that can then be utilized by the variety of tools and methods available to the artist.
 
 
Links:

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. Both Mac (32-bit and 64-bit, Universal Binary) and PC (both 32-bit and 64-bit) plugins are included in the archive.
 
After installation, you will be prompted for a license / registration key. To activate the 30-day Free Trial period, just enter DEMO as a license / registration key.
 
 
Purchase Options:

Once the 30-day Free Trial period expires, you'll need to purchase a license key to continue using the plugin...

NOTE: Due to the nature of the plugin License Key (which can not be canceled, once issued), there is a NO REFUND policy - once I have e-mailed you the License Key, I can not refund your purchase (refunds can only be given before the license has been e-mailed). It is the customer's responsibility to use the 30-day free trial period to evaluate the software prior to purchasing a license.
