Disable SDS Script

Disable SDS Globally!

Here’s a quick and handy little script which will enable / disable all the SDS objects in your scene.  Super handy workflow helper!

Drop this script & icon in your ~/library/scripts/ directory which you can access very easily by opening the Cinema 4D preferences and clicking on the button bottom right of the prefs dialogue.

After you restart C4D, open Script/Script Manager find the disableSDS script and drag the icon into place. (ctrl-click to enable)

Here’s the code in all its beauty!
