hi,

thank for your reply, the console still returns:

> AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'SEENBYBYCAMERA'

for :

	def Init(self, op) :
		data = op.GetDataInstance()
  
		data.SetVector(c4d.LIGHT_COLOR,c4d.Vector(1.0,1.0,1.0))
		data.SetReal(c4d.LIGHT_BRIGHTNESS,1.0)
		data.SetLong(c4d.LIGHT_TYPE,1)
		data.SetLong(c4d.EMITDIRECTION,2)
		data.SetLong(c4d.SAMPLINGMODE,2)
		data.SetLong(c4d.MAXIMUMSAMPLES,128)
		data.SetReal(c4d.ACCURACY,0.65)
		data.SetBool(c4d.ACCURATECOLOR, True)
		data.SetBool(c4d.ISAREALIGHT, True)
		data.SetBool(c4d.SEENBYGI, True)
		data.SetBool(c4d.SEENBYBYCAMERA, True)
		data.SetBool(c4d.SEENBYBYREFLECTIONS, True)
		data.SetBool(c4d.SEENBYBYREFRACTIONS, True)
		data.SetLong(c4d.DISPLAYMODE,2)
		return True

gnahgnahgnah ...

edit : it is in this semi-working state like it is when i remove :

	op[c4d.SEENBYBYREFLECTIONS] = True

	op[c4d.SEENBYBYREFRACTIONS] = True

1-4 correct, 5-7 wrong, 8-9 correct, 10-11 wrong, 12 correct, 13-14 wrong ... oO

not sure what you want to say ? SEENBYCAMERA like the boolean in the compositing tag.

weeh,

its far too late for me 🙂 however, after correcting the typo the console returns :

_ AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'SEENBYREFLECTIONS' _
_

the funny thing is, c4d.SEENBYREFLECTIONS is true and its checkbox is checked. if there is a god, its a cruel one 😞

Perhaps you are having trouble because you changed your descriptions. But didn't delete your coffeesymbolcache file?

That one tends to burn everyone at least once.

To me,

  
    self.InitAttr(op, bool, [c4d.SEENBYBYREFLECTIONS])   
    self.InitAttr(op, bool, [c4d.SEENBYBYREFRACTIONS])   

looks spelt wrong "..BYBY.." but also as Scott mentioned,
the coffesymbolcache file might need to be deleted for
Cinema to update it.

The file is located here on a Windows OS:C:\YOUR username here\user\AppData\Roaming\MAXON\YOUR c4d version here\prefs\coffeesymbolcache

You didn't specify Mac or PC. Or what version you're using.
There are a great many differences between R12 & R13. So please always provide that info in your posts.

BTW: I don't know if you know this or not. But the file link you posted says I need special permission from you to download it. That's not going to get you a lot of help either. 😉

Lol.

That stupid cache file thing is sort of a rite of passage that all python plugin newbies have to go through.
It's sort of like a fraternity hazing...Everyone has to go through it at least once to be in the club.😂
