    Dear Community, When I import a .fbx from C4D to Unity it has a Cinema4DEditor element, do I need this? What is it for? Can I delete it form the prefab, I seem to have lots of cameras un my unity scene because of that? Thank you!

    Hi,
    use the "export only selected" fbx command in c4d if you do not want to have unnecessary stuff coming into Unity. I do not know what a Cinema4DEditor element is and never encountered it in 15 years C4D so far. Do you have a screenshot from C4D object manager and Unity object manager?

    Cheers

    Thanks, here it is in the Hierarchy Panel, I think like you said it was an export to FBX problem, maybe because I had camera selected? Anyway I redid my exports and turned off nearly everything. Is it better to highlight the piece of the 3d model and export only selected as you suggested, is that normal workflow when preparing FBX files?
