SOLVED Ovolumeloader

Anybody here know how to access the volume grids in a VolumeLoader?



a volume loader is just an ordinary generator. This means the stuff it creates is in its cache. You can access the volumes stored in its cache as usual:

if (baseObject->IsInstanceOf(Ovolumeloader) == false)
  return maxon::IllegalArgumentError(MAXON_SOURCE_LOCATION);

BaseObject* const cache = baseObject->GetCache();
if (cache == nullptr)
  return maxon::IllegalArgumentError(MAXON_SOURCE_LOCATION);

if (cache->IsInstanceOf(Ovolume) == false)
  return maxon::UnexpectedError(MAXON_SOURCE_LOCATION);

const VolumeObject* const volumeObject = static_cast<VolumeObject*>(cache);

ApplicationOutput("Volume Object: " + volumeObject->GetName());

See also VolumeObject Manual.

Thanks Sebastian. I did not realize it was a generator. Couldn't find it mentioned in the docs. However I was searching for VolumeLoader in the docs and on here, and I think the official docs searching system doesn't always return the results.

Anyway, all good now. Thanks again.
