I use the following code to find the file Venus_Map.jpg.

elevationData->SetFilename(BITMAPSHADER_FILENAME, Filename("Venus_Map.jpg"));

However it will only find that file if it is in the temp directory for c4d.

I would like it to find that file in a specific location,   namely in the plugin folder in a sub folder called presets and in another sub folder called venus.

so the directory listing looks like this.

#Planet\presets\venus\Venus_Map.jpg

How would I do that in the code I have,, I tried using the path but it won't wok.   Can someone help me?

Thanks,

~Shawn
