While finding the active Stage-object I get a Problem with the "GetHighest"-commando.
It returns the correct Object, when the stage-object is active, but when its inactive, the program crashes.
My Code:

import c4d   
print doc.GetHighest(c4d.Ostage,False).GetName()

perhaps try to add an if() statement to make sure there is an active object first? 
something like:

import c4d
from c4d import documents as docs

doc = docs.GetActiveDocument()
obj = doc.GetActiveObject()

if obj != None:
    print doc.GetHighest(c4d.Ostage,False).GetName()

The commando is not searching for the highest active object, it is searching for the highest object in hierarchy. The program crashes, when finding a stage object, doesn't visible in renderer.

maybe the code for the commando will become public? This would be nice for working with it 🙂

You can do the iteration by hand like this:

import c4d  
from c4d import gui  
  
def SearchOM(op) :  
  if not op: return  
  if op.GetDown() : return op.GetDown()  
  while not op.GetNext() and op.GetUp() :  
      op = op.GetUp()  
  return op.GetNext()  
  
  
def main() :  
  
obj = doc.GetFirstObject()  
while obj:  
   objtype = obj.GetType()  
   mode = obj.GetEditorMode()   
   if objtype == c4d.Ostage and mode == c4d.MODE_UNDEF: #If the Stage tag has grey dots       
      obj.SetBit(c4d.BIT_ACTIVE)                        #Select it in the OM  
      break                                             #We found the first one. So break out of the loop   
   obj = SearchOM(obj)  
c4d.EventAdd()  
  
if __name__=='__main__':  
  main()

The three modes for those little dots are: c4d.MODE_ON, c4d. MODE_OFF, c4d.MODE_UNDEF.
