What is an L4D file?

An L4D file is a settings file created by Maxon Cinema 4D, a 3D modeling application. It saves a workspace layout and includes the positions of toolbars, palettes, and the editing canvas. Cinema 4D users save and load L4D files to preserve workspace configurations, including when setting up single or dual monitor configurations.

Cinema 4D is a Windows and macOS app that provides various features for creating realistic images and graphics for games, movies, architectural design, and motion graphics. The L4D format allows you to customize the app layout to preserve and share with other Cinema 4D users. To save a layout as an L4D file, select Window → Customization → Save Layout as.

Additionally, users can create multiple L4D files that store layouts for different editing tasks. For example, while one perspective may be for editing 3D object geometry, another may have a better layout for animation.
