Happy New Year all,
I was rebuilding all plugins I converted to R20 and came upon this warning.
warning C4305: 'argument': truncation from '' to 'Bool'
Now, this seemed very odd to me. As such I went looking for the reason of this compiler warning, and stumbled upon some code I took for granted, since taken from examples found in SDK as well as posts in the (now legacy) forum.
BaseContainer bcRender = image->pDoc->GetActiveRenderData()->GetData(); ... bcRender.SetBool(RDATA_RENDERENGINE, RDATA_RENDERENGINE_PREVIEWSOFTWARE);
RDATA_RENDERENGINE = 5300, RDATA_RENDERENGINE_STANDARD = 0, RDATA_RENDERENGINE_PREVIEWSOFTWARE = 1, RDATA_RENDERENGINE_PREVIEWHARDWARE = 300001061, RDATA_RENDERENGINE_PHYSICAL = 1023342, RDATA_RENDERENGINE_CINEMAN = 1016630, RDATA_RENDERENGINE_GPURENDERER = 1037639,
I don't think
SetBool is appropriate here. So, I guess the
SimpleMaterial.cpp example in the cinema4dsdk (and maybe others as well) might need to be adjusted.
Compiling with R19 seemed not to bring this warning up (or I must have missed it), but I now think to understand why some renderings failed with my plugins using the hardware renderer.
