in my plugin object, I want to evaluate the color channel of the first material attached. It's not about rendering, my object should do certain things according to the texture color.
I saw lots of threads about Bitmaps and even more threads about UV coordinates here, but I still have no clue. I don't even know where to start my research.
Let's say, I have a position on a plane. Any position, maybe it's a vertex point of the mesh, maybe it's a random position on a polygon (determined by barycentric coordinates). How can I find out the color of the applied material at this position?
Textures (and maybe 2D shaders) will be sufficient, no need to evaluate fancy volume shaders like SLA. Also, I just need UVW Mapping, other mapping are not required (well, if they're easy, I will implement them, too ).
Thanks in advance for help!! I really have no idea where to start.

this is just what i found from the doc's so it might not be what you need. (not a coffee expert)
