I'm trying to get some basic animation info from Melange, but I've been having difficulties.
How can I get the start/end frame?
The BaseDocument doesn't have GetMinTime() or GetMaxTime(), unlike the C++ SDK, and the docpref member is private.
// doesn't work
LONG start_frame = c4ddoc.docpref.GetMinTime().GetFrame(c4ddoc.GetFps());
LONG end_frame = c4ddoc.docpref.GetMaxTime().GetFrame(c4ddoc.GetFps());
There are no methods in BaseDocument that explicitly return docpref, so I have no idea how to access it.

Most of the attributes you can set/get with SetParameter()/GetParameter().
(to get the name of a parameter you can drag it from the attribute manager into the edit field of the console window in cinema)
to get min and max frames please try this:
Real start_time = 0.0, end_time = 0.0;
LONG start_frame = 0, end_frame = 0, fps = 0;
// get fps
fps = mydata.GetLong();
// get start and end time
start_time = mydata.GetTime().Get();
end_time = mydata.GetTime().Get();
// calculate start and end frame
start_frame = start_time * fps;
end_frame = end_time * fps;_
