Clean Up Database

This option compresses internal databases and other elements. Normally, though, databases will be compressed automatically once an internal limit is exceeded. You can also compress databases before they exceed this limit.

Call up this command if you want to create a library or catalog (i.e. files that will be saved to the library / browser directory) while running Cinema 4D. All changes will be applied to the corresponding elements.
