MergeDocument isn't importing/assigning textures

I'm working on a script to merge a file into my scene. I have polygon objects with materials assigned to them, but when I import using SCENEFILTER_OBJECTS (flag 1), it only imports the objects, not the materials. The SDK says it should import the objects "and associated items, such as materials used". Am I missing something?

Here's what I'm using:

import c4d
from c4d import gui
#Welcome to the world of Python


def main() :
    c4d.documents.MergeDocument(doc, resourceFile, 1)

  1. don't use numerals for flags when there are symbols available
  2. the docs are wrong here, you need to tell it to load objects AND materials

Also, thanks for the tip re: symbols - I'm new to all this and have so much to learn 🙂

Hi theleast,

welcome to the Plugin Café forums.

We'll correct the documentation.
