    Hi all,
    I have a new Problem ;.}
    I want to set a layer to an objekt depending on the Material-Name of the objekt:
    In words like this:
    run through all ojekts
    If "Material-Name" = xxx
        then
          set  Layer to the object = "YYY"
    ende 
    An other problem for me is to set the material-projekttion.
    In words like this:
    run through all ojekts
    If "Material-Name" = xxx
       then
         set material-projektion = cubic
    ende
    Thanks so much for all your help.

    Hi Mathias,
    thanks for your replay.
    Problem is, that we diddn't  know the structure of the databases in C4D.
    So the programmming is to much try and error.
    If there would be a stucture-diagramm it would be verry helpful.
    The problem in the upper question is, that we want to set an existing layer to an existing objekt in case of it´s material-name.
    So first we have go to the first objekt,
    then read out the materal name,
    then, set a Layer to the objekt.
    For example:
    Material = "Wood 01" asign object to Layer "01"
    Material = "Metall 01" asign object to layer "02"
    .
    .
    .

    The problem we have is, that we do not know how to read out the material-name from the current object.
    i seams verry simple, but we don't get the current material Name ;-}}}
    cheers,
    Ronny

    hier unser aktueller Stand. Die rote Stelle macht mir probleme wiel ich nicht auf das Materialtag und den Namen des Materials komme.

    Since you want to get the material of each object you simply have to get the material tag for each object and going from there to get the material assigned to the material tag.

    Here is a little example printing the name of the first material of each object.

    Dear Mathias,
    thanks for the help.
    Now it becomes clearer how to jump from the objekt to a Tag!!
    Tkanks so much
