Merge two objects into one?!

I know that this has been asked before, but I've spent the last couple of hours trying to figure out how to merge/connect two (or more) polygon objects into one, single mesh. A lot of people have mentioned the "Connect Objects"- and "Connect Objects + Delete"-commands, but they don't seem to appear for me:





I'm currently using the latest version of Cinema 4D Lite that comes bundled with After Effects.

that's the places to look so those commands must not be in Lite, the only alternate I know of is MagicMerge but that doesn't work in Lite either.

Not sure if C4 Lite has Connect object.

Try to go to Create>>>Modeling>>>Connect

If you have it, you could drop all your objects inside, select them all and make it editable to create one sigle object.



Good Luck

Imagination is the best tool...

I guess there is no way to achieve this in C4D Lite then...
Not a huge deal though, I can always place multiple objects as children under the same null which produces a similar result.

it still should be possible to just copy/paste the polys from one object into the other, and does Lite have the Boole object? You could do a Boole Union if it's there and then make that editable
