Materials don't accept Tags?



  • So is there a fundamental architectural reason why Materials don't accept Tags? In other words, the InsertTag/GetTags/KillTag methods only exist on BaseObject but not BaseMaterial. Why is that?



  • Why should materials accept tags? What do you want to do?

    In Cinema 4D, tags are used to add optional data or behavior to scene objects.

    You can add a material tag to an object - or not. You can add a Python tag to an object - or not.

    But In C4D, there is nothing one could or should add to materials in a similar way.

    If you somehow want to store data with a material, you could store that in the material's BaseContainer.



  • Hello,

    i could ask the question to the dev. There's nothing you can do about it.

    What do you have in mind ?
