    ---------
    I am passing a bunch of pointers to a dialog and open up a new scene, I then insert clones of the objects (that the pointers belong to) into this new scene. At the end I copy them back to the "original" objects with CopyTo() and also use an aliastranlate.
    All this works just fine as long as the user does not use the undo in Cinema 4D. Because if he does, the pointers seem to become invalid... :
    Any chance for a workaround or an explanation?
    Thanks in advance

    Storing pointers is always dangerous. Store a BaseLink instead, because then you'll at least know when it's invalidated.
