The title has my question - if I'm compiling my plugin with the 8.206 SDK, what would be the lowest compatible version of BodyPaint?
BP 2.0? 2.5? (I'm not even sure what the available version numbers are :).

You can check the general version number of the BodyPaint module available using GeGetVersionType() to see if VERSION_BODYPAINT or VERSION_BODYPAINT2 is running. I don't see a way to get the actual version number. You may need to use GeGetSerialInfo(SERIAL_BODYPAINT,&sni;) and try to make the determination from the BodyPaint serial number (shrug).

Thanks Robert, but what I'm really trying to determine is...
If I'm using the 8.206 SDK, what is the lowest version of BodyPaint that will work with my plugin?
I guess it depends on when version 2 (and/or version 2.5) was released, relative to C4D versions.
I'm getting ready to release my new BodyPaint plugin set and am trying to fill out the "Requirements" section of the docs - I don't know which (Stand alone) version of BodyPaint is required.

Ah. I think that BodyPaint3D needed to be upgraded to v2.0 when R8.0 was released. v2.5 was either R9.0 or R9.5.

...I seem to have a "BodyPaint Release 2" here on my machine, and in the start-up banner, it says:
BodyPaint 3D V8.206
...in the bottom-left corner, so I guess that links C4D R8.206 with BP R2 but I don't have a serial number for that version, so I can't test my plugin with it.
Do you have a working version of Stand alone BodyPaint R2 (or C4D R8.206 + BP R2) to test my plugin? (I think a demo version would work)

I don't have the standalone version. I have BP installed in R8.503 and above. Maybe you have the remnants of a demo install on your R8.206?
If it were installed, I might take you up on the test offer. But, as you can see by my recent posts here, I'm deep in .... trying to get a tool worked out for interPoser Pro.
BP v2.5 was definitely R9.5 (as noted on the MAXON Shop).
BP v2.0 may have been R8.5 as I've found a reference to R8.2 and BP v1.1:

Thanks for that link/info. Hmmm.. that press release kinda makes me think that BP v1.1 might support R8.206 plugins.
I really want to get this plugin out, but it looks like I'll have to wait for some sort of official answer to this.

Good question. I don't have any old BP standalone installations either, but I've asked the developers if they have a clue.

Thanks... I'll wait as patiently as possible :).

BP2 is R8.2 (8.2 plugins won't work with BP1). BP2.5 is R9.5.
