  1. Stable work. Using File Sequence Exporter you can export any Cinema 4D animaited scene. It works in many cases, when other plug-ins and scripts fails.
  2. Output sequence formats: Cinema 4D .c4d (best for Element 3D), Wavefront OBJ .obj (for Stardust and Plexus).
  3. Level Of Detail (from Cinema4D v20) and Polygon Reduction (from Cinema4D v19). Create sequences with reduced polygon and vertices count to reduce overall file size and processing speed (proxy file sequence).
  4. Command-line mode. This mode provides additional opportunities for integrating the plug-in in batch files and scripts.
