Here are the long awaited Text-Nodes.
There is a set of two nodes, Text-In and Text-Out.
What they do is read from a text file and write to a text file.
The can help import text-based data such as converted spreadsheets, any xml file, converted midi, and many more.
The the text-out can be used to store data from anything within cinema4d to a text file so it can be reused in other software.
I made a long in-depth tutorial in the August’05 magazine of 3DAttack with some nice examples.
These nodes are made by Rui-Mac.
Then there is a set of nodes that give the actual time and date, and there is a node that gives the name of the document.
These nodes can be useful to add a “signature” on your renderings.
These are made by Tengaal.
The text-in and Text-out nodes are really for people who know a bit of xpresso. There are some examples on CGTalk and 3dAttack of how the nodes are used to import AE camera positions and more.
