How To Install CS Tools In Cinema 4D Version 12 (Also works for 11.5) 53 Comments


I know, I know. It seems like there is a new way to install CS Tools with every new version of Cinema 4D. Luckily, this new way works with almost all of them. In this short tutorial, I show you how to use the Content Browser to install and use the CS Tools.

  4. The CS tools are included with C4D v12. They are scattered in the various preset sections. For instance, the CS cameras are located in Presets/Broadcast/Resources/Cameras.

  11. Hey Nick, I have cinema 4d R12 and when I go into the content browser and select the folder which contains the CSTOOLs (including the smooth cam) nothing is showing up. It is just a blank folder? Why is that? I am following the tutorial perfectly however when in the content browser the folder is empty and will not show the .c4d files. However the folders outside of C4d are not empty?

    Any thoughts or recommendations?

    • There are two panes in the content browser. be sure to select the folder and you will see the contents of the folder in the pane to the right.

  12. Yep i have restarted C4D i followed exactly what you did now a few times and it is not working. I bought C4d with version 12 never dealt with version 11.5 so I dont know if that has something to do with the c4d files not showing up but this is really starting to make me crazy! Help

    Hi nick,
    Currently learning c4d and i have just come acroos cs tools.
    However i am having an issue with the cstools, 3d stroke for example in 13.
    Only the thickness is working, the offset, length and taper do nothing. However i have an old version 11 and it seems to work perfectly in this version. Just wondered if you would be able to shed any light on why this doesnt work? If you know of any conflicts in 13, or get arounds?

    Thanks

      Like an earlier commenter mentioned the CS Tools are now part of the presets in the Broadcast vesion of C4D. I have R13 and can find them in the Content Browser>Broadcast>Presets>Tools ; Content Browser>Broadcast>Resources>Cameras and Content Browser>Broadcast>Resources>Lights

      Cheers!
