i'd like to know what plugins are used in a specific document. Is there a possiblity to do this?

Can you be a bit more specific? Problem is that almost everything in Cinema4D is basically a plugin.

I'm trying to test a project if it is suitable to render on an other Cinema installation in the network.
I know what plugins are installed on the render machine, but like to know if in the active project any other plugins are used for rendering.
so, in short words, i'd like to know if the "several plugins used in this scene are missing" on the rendermachine would pop up if i save the scene as it is now on my modeling machine.

I don't think this is possible. I'll ask the developers though.

i wrote a little plugin now, that outputs all installed plugins with type in a txt file.
on the modelling installation i now check every Material/Tag/Object/VideoPost and Shader if their type is in the txt file.
seams to work for me... till now

some internals are not found with getfirstplugin (f.e. the Phong Tag).
so i constrained the lookup on ids higher than 1000000, cause i thought lower ids are not given to plugins.
but some plugins seam to return the id of the Base class.
f.e. FinalRender returns 5709 as in VPbase.
so it doesn't work that way?

i'm back to this problem again.
so are there any solutions?
a vray material returns 5705 on Gettype(). That's the one of Mplugin.
but i want to know the real id of the plugin...

Ok, some more insights reveil that i only get the base Type (like 5705 Mplugin for materials) if i don't have the plugin on my machine.
so with GetType i get the real plugin-ID if i have the plugin installed, and if i don't have it installed i'll get the base type.
is there the possibility to get the real plugin-ID of an Object? (GetRealType() doesn't do anything different than GetType())
