How can I match the camera settings from Cinema4D in Blender ?


I need to copy the settings from a Cinema4D camera to a camera in Blender.

The main settings needed from Cinema4D are:
Focal Length, Aperture Width and Field Of View.

I’m guessing the lens property of the Blender camera is equivalent to Field Of View,
but I don’t know how to tackle the other settings.


I think I found a solution: the awesome BLenses( script.

I entered the apperture width from Cinema4D. I know image aspect ratio should be 16:9 (~ 1.77777778)
so I used that to calculate the apperture height. Pressed Calculate & Set Image A.R. and that returned the expected ratio. Then I pressed Calculate & Set FOV, which returned the exact FOV the Cinema4D camera had and that was it.

Thanks K. G. Nyman for the great script :slight_smile:

You’re very welcome! Glad to hear it’s getting some use.
