Work Note 10.03.16 – MOL file into C4D

Vincristine, C4D, drug molecule

Final result rendered from C4D


I was looking for how to import some drug molecules into C4D. If they were PDB files, I could use ePMV to open without trouble; however, they weren’t..

So I did the following:
– found their MOL files downloaded from sites such as
– put them into UCSF Chimera
– did some appearance edit in Favorite>Model Panel>attributes
– exported the scenes as VRML files (if using COLADA format all color texture will be stripped of the atom spheres)
– opened the converted files in C4D
– turned on Sketch&Toon to make some minor adjustments – saved for future use.

It works so far 🙂
