    You shouldn't be doing anything in Init() that depends upon a completed scene. For instance, during document load, objects may not have been created yet that you might try to 'find' in Init(). Init() is best left for variable initialization and memory allocations. Use MSG_DESCRIPTION_DOCUMENTIMPORTED or other avenues (such as your own explicit InitMyPlugin() method called when appropriate) for these other things.

    Init() is called whenever a new instance is created. C4D does this automatically at times (renders, redraws). Check this thread:
