In the viewport I would like to draw a line from one vector to another vector.
At first I used the BaseDraw::Line3D, but the thickness of the line is not stong enough and makes it hard to see over existing lines in the C4D viewport.
So I have decided to write up my own line drawing routine, and use the Handle2D or Polygon3D method to plot the line points.
The problem is I don't know how to convert a vector from world space onto the screen space. I thought using the supplied function BaseDraw::WS() would be it, but I get unexpected results from that.
What I want to do is, get two points from an object. Convert those vectors into a suitable screen space, then use a 2D line drawing algorithm to draw a line from the two converted vectors. This is so I can highlight an edge of a polygon.

Please ignore this post, I made a typo and was using BaseDraw::SW() and not BaseDraw::WS()
It works now
