If you have ever brought in a .obj file of a 3D model and find that it’s importing as a single polygon object which would make it really hard to texture, then this tool is for you. It’s called Polygon Islands to Objects and it’s a way to break up your .obj file into pieces that will help you texture and animate faster. It’s a great C4D feature to be aware of, and it’s kind of hidden!
