3D Studio Import

General

Scale

This factor can be found at numerous locations throughout Cinema 4D when importing or exporting foreign formats. Therefore, don’t be surprised if the term ,export’ is used if this factor is seen in an import function (this factor is explained as a whole here).

This factor lets you scale files upon import/export, i.e., practically all relevant numerical values saved in the file or those to be saved will be multiplied by this factor and then saved - or interpreted when loaded.

The unit at the right in turn defines how upon

More information about units and scaling can be found in the Project Scale section.

Adapt Textures
Suffix

3D Studio does not support as many graphics file formats for textures etc. as Cinema 4D. Its main format is TIFF. If you enable this option, all texture filename extensions are changed to that which you have specified in the Suffix box (for example frame.jpg becomes frame.tif).

This option is for import only. Only the name is changed. You still need to convert the image, which can, for example, be done in the Picture Viewer.
