Hi guys !
I am in the process of implementing a fairly complex Asset instance management for C4D using our pipeline. I am looking into using C4D's XRef. Very happily surprised it supports referencing Alembics !
I'm fighting with some issues though. Most of them have some references to them on this forum, but the topics are old, so i'm hoping some things have changed.
First, is there still no way to prevent a dialog with import options to show up when changing the path to a reference ? Can we hack around that ?
Second, it seems that deleting a reference using python (deleting the root object with Remove() ) leaves some sort of trace in the XRef Manager. Should i be deleting them using something else ?
Overall it seems XRef are quite finicky to manipulate from code, this is quite limiting from a pipeline standpoint. Would i have more luck implementing some sort of custom command for what i need in C++ or would i have the same problems ?
