R20 Alembic Export Crash



  • Hi,

    I'm trying to use the ExportAlembic.py example in Cinema 4D R20 but the application crashes.

    The same example works in R19.

    Doing it manually via File > Export... > Alembic (*.abc) does work.

    Tried in both Windows 10 and macOS.

    While in macOs the crash reporter makes a log, in Windows, the applications freezes with "Preparing Project for Export" in the status bar.

    Hi @dev-vfxboat, first of all, welcome in the plugincafe community.

    This is a known bug and already fixed for SP2 (the next Service Pack). It's impacting both Python and C++.
    The workaround is to pass the flag c4d.SAVEDOCUMENTFLAGS_DIALOGSALLOWED to the SaveDocument function.

    Moreover, don't worry, but please make sure to read and use How to Post Questions (Especially about tagging system)

    Cheers,
    Maxime.
