The recommended icon size for DescriptionToolData is 32x32, but it looks very low res in the toolbar.
If I double the size, it will look great on the toolbar, but gigantic besides the mouse pointer.
Is there a way to register a high-res icon for the toolbar and a low-res icon for the pointer?

well, yes, in theory you can register two different icons, I'll get back to this at the end, but it's actually way simpler.
The key is to set the BASEBITMAP_DATA_GUIPIXELRATIO correct (for a 64 by 64 icon it's 2.0) for the bitmap, then everything will work automatically with just one icon. Therefore you have several options:
// when using [AutoBitmap](https://developers.maxon.net/docs/Cinema4DCPPSDK/html/class_auto_bitmap.html), set it directly BaseBitmap* bmp = AutoBitmap("myicon_64x64.tif", 2.0); // Or when allocating a bitmap manually BaseBitmap* bmp = BaseBitmap::Alloc(); if (bmp->Init(GeGetPluginResourcePath() + "myicon_64x64.tif") != IMAGERESULT_OK) return false; bmp->SetData(BASEBITMAP_DATA_GUIPIXELRATIO, 2.0);
But if you want to, you can also register as many icons of various sizes as you like, via RegisterIcon() (with ICONFLAG_2X).
Then you'd need to set the RESULT_CURSOR in the BaseContainer in GetCursorInfo() to the registered icon ID. Remember to use unique IDs to register icons.
