Plugin doesn't work if child has tag(tex,dynamics,

I have a test plugin that simply extrudes all polygons from its child object. 
It's working without any problems when the child object has a phong tag or most of the other tags, but seems like certain tags can't be used with it. For example, if I attempt to assign dynamics tag, texture tag, Compositing tag ... it stops working.
I can't see any error messages in the console.

Which part of this code should I change in order to bypass this issue?

Thanks. 🙂

  1. def GetVirtualObjects(self, op, hh) :
  2. #Check child Object
  3. child = op.GetDown()
  4. if not child: return None
  5. #Create clone
  6. cloneGenerator = op.GetAndCheckHierarchyClone(hh, child, c4d.HIERARCHYCLONEFLAGS_ASPOLY, False)
  7. dirty = cloneGenerator["dirty"]
  8. clone = cloneGenerator["clone"]
  9. children = clone.GetChildren()
  10. if not dirty:
  11. return clone
  12. #Crete Connect Generator
  13. connect = c4d.BaseObject(1011010)
  14. connect[c4d.CONNECTOBJECT_WELD] = False
  15. clone.InsertUnder(connect)
  16. #Make Editable
  17. res1 = c4d.utils.SendModelingCommand(command = c4d.MCOMMAND_CURRENTSTATETOOBJECT,
  18. list     = [connect],
  19. doc      = child.GetDocument())[0]
  20. #Extrude all polygons
  21. settings = c4d.BaseContainer()
  22. settings[c4d.MDATA_EXTRUDE_OFFSET] = op[10000]
  23. res = c4d.utils.SendModelingCommand (command = c4d.ID_MODELING_EXTRUDE_TOOL,
  24. list    = [res1],
  25. mode    = c4d.MODELINGCOMMANDMODE_POLYGONSELECTION,
  26. bc      = settings,
  27. doc     = child.GetDocument())
  28. #Return Result
  29. return res1

I had similar issues running the CURRENTSTATETOOBJECT-command.
If I remember correctly, depending on the tags it returns a null-object with the converted object underneath. So you'll need to check if res1 is a null-object and if so if "res1.GetDown()" returns a polygonal object.

Hi,

I confirm the behavior outlined by Phil.
Current State to Object command keeps objects with hierarchical tags and inserts these under a null object that is returned, instead of just a polygon object.
