    I've got a scene with several coffee tags all which use a common .coh include file.  This include file is in the same directory as the .c4d scene.  From the editor, the coffee runs fine.  However, when I render to frames, the coffee stops working.  Apparently, it can't see the include any longer.
    Also of note, if I open the scene from my most recently used list.  The coffee does not work.  If I open the file using the file browser, it works. 
    So, the question is, how do I make it find the include consistently?  Is there a PATH statement or other C4D config that I can set up?  In the mean time, I'll try hard coding the path ... but I should be able to use a relative path.
     
    Thanks.

    It seems to me like C4D searches all directories in the working directory for C.O.F.F.E.E. includes. I cannot confirm the render specific part of the bug.
    Possibly using includes in C.O.F.F.E.E. tags isn't supported. A workaround would be to insert the included file into the code directly. I'll report the behaviour as a bug.

    Yeah, as the document is cloned during rendering this might lead to problems probably.

    I got it confirmed from the programmers that include isn't supported in C.O.F.F.E.E. expressions. So you'll have to either rely on the fragile support there is, or use the workaround.

    I have a similar problem... I'd like to "include" a common function library into a variety of plugins I'm working on- each in its own directory, but I can't specify a path (or can't figure out how to.)
       Mikael mentions above that "C4D searches all directories in the working directory for includes", but as soon as I move my common library out of any given folder, that plugin fails to load with
    COFFEE ERROR!
    (125) Error in 'include'
    File: TheFileFromWhichIremovedTheFolder.cof
    Line: ...

    Creating aliases for the include file doesn't work (makes sense), so do I really need to keep a copy of this common library (still a work in progress) and replace every copy in each plugin's folder everytime I do a minor update during development? Please let me know if there is some way to specify a path for the include or if I'm doing something else wrong.
    Thanks,
    Graham

    Have you tried absolute paths, something like include "c:\myincludes\myheader.h" ?

    cheers,

    I've not tried absolute paths of that style, just the relative "../CommonFile.col" to get the parent directory that Robert suggested. I'll try to start with a clean GeGetRootFilename and will post what happes.

    I've tried some of the above, and nothing has worked so far.
    I'll move details for this conversation over to the more specific thread under
