    Hey guys!
    How can I import my animation from cinema 4d or blender?

    The only way you would be able to do it as of now is export the animation as a series of PNG's and import them as a regular animation. There is no support for FBX models, only OBJ. There are a couple of super users that have found some little workarounds to animating some 3d objects but it's limited. I have heard people asking for FBX support but I don't know if it is a high priority for the BB team or not.

    The best thing we can do right now is import an OBJ and slap a texture on it. If you know how to use blender you can make an unwrapped PNG texture and apply it within buildbox. Probably why 99% of the main characters and enemies in BB games are squares and balls.

    We are working on FBX support, it will be added in the future.
    Great workaround though @Thud :)

    This is something that we are strongly working on. We know many users want this kind of feature and it is something that we are looking forward to as well.
