- C4D_PLUGINS_DIR: Set a path like c:\plugins (or a network path) to load plugins that lie outside of the Cinema 4D program directory.
- C4D_SCRIPTS_DIR: Set a path like c:\scripts (or a network path) to load Python or C.O.F.F.E.E scripts in any Cinema 4D version.
Multiple paths can be separated using a semicolon (;).
