How to enable Muffin Builder for Custom Post Types?

Hi! Strictly speaking - the question in the title. But the details are:
TheBE - wonderful theme, but there is only ONE custom post type, witch can be filtered by categories - PORTFOLIO.
Meanwhile - there are a lot of tasks where everybody needs the post type with filtering capabilities, for example - team is very often: founders, cowokers, editors and so on. And there are many specific subjects: books, movies, receipts and much, much more. The main word - FILTERING possibilities.
Ok - I can easy create Custom Type for example Founders with plugin Custom Post Types UI - no problem. But there are 2 (two) difficulties:
1) and the main: how to INTEGRATE  Muffin Builder for that post type - it is very
convenient! Newly Founders - without it, but I want it very much... May be it is possible? or may be it is possible to double Portfolio to rename it? First of all - for the compatibility features between posts types...
2) filtering the second question - but it can be solved with paid Envato plugins(for example MDTF), this question is not so important, but the first...

    Pablo, thank you for the answer!

    but sounds strange about Custom Post Type UI - about 1 000 000 installations, there are many users recommend it as must have, and... "we do not support third party plugins". Those third party plugin gives many additional features to your theme... working without any problem and "we cannot be of any help to you"
    Twice is strange that above mentioned plugin - that is in fact UI to NATIVE WP custom post function.

    Can you help with a simple question: using NATIVE WP custom post registering hook - I registered Custom Post "Books". How can I add native BE MUFFIN builder inside? I do not believe, that Be has not such function (action hook). And the question this time - not about plugin - about native wp function -> native Be Muffin builder. How to..? Ask, please, developers...
    (Only I have 11 Be licensing + a lot of my friends< I did not ask not needed questions and know about Be almost all...)

    I'm used to create posts with Muffin Builder. Very, very nice and powerful builder.
    Be also uses Custom Types - for example Testimonials or Offer - how to enable Muffin builder on them? also needed very much.

    Will be very much appreciated!

  • Pablo, may be last again:
    forget about plugin! there is no plugin. I use the NATIVE WP function to register Custom Post Type Books:

    --> register_post_type( "books", $args );
    --> and add_action ('init', 'my_function')

    Can I use that? Can I use native wp functions? It seems to me - nobody can prohibit. I created Custom Post Type "Books" within native WP environment, which works well. But the question is different:
    -- if I install Elementor now - there is a settings IN ELEMENTOR - for which post types I want to use it - ELEMENTOR clear can be enabled on my Books and works very well.
    -- how I can do this for MF?

    Something tells me that you yourself do not know the answer, although it is within the usual support, nothing complicated... You can answer then: MF bulder is a complicated builder which works ONLY with pages, post and portfolio.
    But - that is bad... There is no any flexibility...

    Thank you, but this time - support was ineffective.

    I understood how you created and initialized CLASS entity and did my Custom Post types with those initialization. Everything is placed under child theme - and I have Muffin in my custom post type )
    Great!!! Thank you very much.
