    For some reason, when my plugin is rendered, c4d crashes.   I can do a viewport render with no problem, but when I do a full render with the picture viewer c4d crashes.  Is there something specific I should be looking at to figure out what is causing this crash?   Does anyone have any suggestions for where to begin looking?

    Thanks,

    Keep in mind that when rendering in the picture viewer you render a clone of the document. So for instance if you use GetActiveDocument() in your plugin you get the currently open document and not the actual rendered document. Rendering into the editor renders the actual document and not a clone.

    So when the user chooses to render in the picture viewer and my plugin uses GetActiveDocument(),  then the Active Document changes and thus the crash?

    In general yes, GetActiveDocument() should not be used in a render or object creation context. Usally you get a valid document passed to these sensitive functions. Where are you using GetActiveDocument()?

    Btw. what kind of plugin are we talking about, an object, tag, shader etc?

    an object plugin.

    I searched through the code and I do not use GetActiveDocument()..   I use GetDocument()   but never GetActiveDocument()..    I do use GetActiveObject()...

    would GetActiveObject cause the same problem?

    Probably. It does sound kinda strange to me to use GetActiveObject() in an object plugin. In which context are you using this function? Anyway as long as you always check for NULL pointers and react accordingly it should not crash. But there can be alot of reasons why your plugin is crashing.

    I use GetActiveObject like this

    BaseObject* prnt = doc->GetActiveObject();

    then whenever I need to find objects that are the children of my object I use....

    prnt->GetDown()-GetNext()   etc.....

    It is possible that I have not checked for a NULL pointer somewhere...    I will look around and use some GePrint() to see what is causing the crash.

    yes, you must free all the materials that you have removed. You should check the docs more carefully.

    _<_h4_>_void Remove(v_<_h4_>_/h4>
    Remove this node from its list.

    Note: When you remove a node you become responsible for freeing it, or passing the ownership to another list by inserting it there.

    Furthermore you should check the pointers returned by GetDown() etc. if one of these is NULL, it´ll crash. ALWAYS check your pointers.

    sorry about all the GePrint()..    they are for my own debugging purposes.

    that code I just sent crashes after GePrint("4.2");

    if you remove then surfaceTag->GetMaterial() will be NULL as it is not in the scene anymore.

    do it like this:

    BaseMaterial\* mat1 = surfaceTag->GetMaterial();  
    mat1->Remove();  
    BaseMaterial::Free(mat1);

    Yep.  That was the problem.  I needed to check for NULL pointers for all of the pointers in this member function.   Thanks guys.
