About This File

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.

Select all instances of the same reference object.

  • Ctrl: Selects nested instances.
  • Shift: Also select reference object.

  • Shift: Adds to current selection

 

CREATE

  • Ctrl: Also renames nested instances.
