A newbie question:
I have [ imageplane ] script, which "...his script will import an image into C4D and automatically create a material with the image in the luminance and alpha channels of the material, and then create a plane with -z orientation and apply the material to it. Basically, it's a way to import a bitmap image into Cinema's 3d space without having to do all the manual labor."
But how can I add "Look At Camera" Tag to the new created object within the script? And turn off Pitch Rotation and set angle P=0?
Whith Script Log I have this:
CallCommand(100004788); // New Tag
How can I add Look At Camera TAG with script?
Thanks a lot.

Tags can be created with AllocTag(tagID), where tagID is the plugin ID of the tag to created.
In case of the Look At Camera tag it's 1001001. IDs for tags, objects etc. can be read out with GetType(), for instance op->GetType() returns the ID of the object.
var op = object();
op#ID_BASEOBJECT_ROTATION:VECTOR_Y = 0.0;
var mytag = AllocTag(1001001);
mytag#LOOKATCAMERA_PITCH = FALSE;

Thanks! Works fine here!
For CompositingTag and Object Buffer=1, I used this code below:
var obj = doc->GetActiveObject();
var comp = new(CompositingTag);
Adding Tags can differ from one to another in the way they are added?
Where I can find this kind of information? SDK?

Please always use AllocTag(tag plugin id) to allocate tags. The tag plugin id can be obtained for every tag (or object, material etc.) by calling GetType() , see image below.

Thanks. Learning a lot!
Now, I'm trying to set Material Preview to Plane. But no success. I believe this may be very easy.
Something like this?
var preview = textag->GetContainer();

Changing the material preview in COFFEE is unfortunatly not possible.
