[Render settings] File format Options R19

    Hi all,

    I've noticed that in C4D R19 the file format options have changed, breaking my automated output format script.

    Now I'm trying to fix the script, so it sets my output format to OpenEXR and alters the following options/values:
    > (compression method dropdown)-------[c4d.MEDIASESSION_PROPS_COMPRESSIONMETHOD]
    >
    > (half float checkbox)---------------------[1003,c4d.MEDIASESSION_PROPS_HALFFLOAT]
    >
    > (Layer Numbering checkbox)------------[1004,c4d.MEDIASESSION_PROPS_LAYERNUMBERING]

    These values are just grey in the script editor though (instead of orange)
    Is this not yet covered in the new Python SDK for R19? Or am I approaching this the wrong way?

    Hope someone could help me out.

    All the Best!

    Hello,

    unfortunately there were some internal changes in Cinema 4D R19. These changes were about how Cinema handles image file formats. This has also changed how the file format settings are displayed in the render settings dialog and how they are stored in the BaseContainer.

    So unfortunately in R19 is is no longer possible to edit these settings anymore.

    best wishes,

    Hi Sebastian,

    Thanks for the reply! Do you happen to know if support for controlling these values will be there in the future? I'm trying to make our vfx pipeline as foolproof as possible, and setting the right imageformat settings is quite a big part of this.

    All the best!

    Hello,

    I hope it will be possible to access these settings again in the future but right now I don't know if and when this will be the case.

    best wishes,
    Sebastian
