Is there any way to import an .xyz file into C4D? Its from another 3-d program called Spartan. Essentially it is just coordinates on an xyz plot. Or is there another file format that I could save it as instead?


Thanks in advance.

look in C4d's Preferences (or the Help) for file formats C4D will import, what will Spartan export besides .xyz?

Spartan will export a number of Spartan files (Spartan Document, SPARTAN Exchange, SPARTAN Collection, Spartan Database, etc.), which I don't think will be very helpful, but it also can export the following files:

Cambridge
Macromodel
SybylMol
SybylMol2
Brookhaven
MDL SD
MDL SKL
MDL TGF
SMILES
xyz
JPEG
PNG

I was looking to keep the 3-d aspect of it, so a JPEG or a PNG might not be the most helpful, but it can do them.

Thanks!

I don't recognize any of those outside the jpeg and png unless you can find another tool that will let you change one of the other 3d formats to something C4D will import I don't know a solution
