What is it?
Storage Bin is a unique workflow plugin for Cinema 4D that will change the way you work inside of C4D! Storage Bin assists the motion graphic artist by aiding the object creation, modeling, and everyday workflow processes by storing backups of object states as you work. Backups can then be compared and restored for later use if needed. It’s in the bin! Save your Cloner Objects, Motext, NURB/Generator objects, Sculpts, and model states, declutter your Object Manager, and let go of the fear of messing up in the middle of your work! No longer do you have to worry about manually making a copy before making an object editable! With Storage Bin, you can store your object states as you go with the ability to go back to an older state and continue on from there. You’ll never have to start from square one again!
Restoring a State
Hopefully you don’t mess up, but if you do, you can always cycle back through your saved states by toggling your Object States edit field.
Once you’re looking at the object state that you wish to restore, simply push the “Restore State” button. This will create a copy of that state as a new state, thus preserving the original just in case! You also have restore options such as “Keep Current Tag Data” so it preserves your objects applied tags and “Maintain Original PSR” which is useful if you moved the object in any way, when you restore your alternate state, it inherits the PSR of your restored object.
