Cinema 4D Keyboard Shortcuts

September 21, 2009

These shortcuts are based on the default settings in Cinema 4D. If you have edited your Command Manager settings things might work differently for you. Also note that if you are using expose on a Macintosh, things might not work as listed. I highly recommend turning off your expose, at least while working in C4D.
