    I'm evil. Actually, my users are demanding. Poser allows grouping of dials with group nesting since Poser 5. This helps to break up large sets of dials (morphs or masters).

    Obviously, the only way to recreate this in Cinema 4D is by using dynamic elements through GetDDescription(). Adding control elements is one thing, but adding them to dynamically created groups is another hazardous duty.

    Also, this pretty much precludes any user editing of the groups (adding, removing, reorganizing them or sliders therein) except through a dialog.

    Any clever ideas? :)

    Sorry to dig up this older thread, but I'd like to know if it is possible to add GROUPs dynamically in GetDDescription(). The type can be set to DTYPE_GROUP, but there is no corresponding DESC_CUSTOMGUI setting.

    For now, I'll try it and see what happens. Look forward to better information though.

    Thanks,

    Nevermind on that - forgot completely about the example of doing this in "lookatcamera.cpp". :thumbs up: and away I go. :)
