    Hi all hope your all haveing a great day just a small queston regarding shader nameing in python
    heres a example of script that works
     
        shd = c4d.BaseList2D(XSLANoise)
     
    what im looking for is the same line of script but for the Terrain Mask i tryed this but did not work
     
       shd = c4d.BaseList2D(XSLATerrainMask)
     
    or is the new Terrain Mask not yet supported or is there a totaly differrent name for this after the XSLA???????
     Thank you all in advance for any insight  to this.
     
     Cheers Ray.

    i guess it is XTerrainmask. X is the prefix for shaders and sla a relict from xl 5 times when cinemas 
    noise shaders were a plugin called Smells Like Almonds. you can always do a file search on your 
    c4d/ressource folder to obtain correct ids or namings.

    edit : from the *.res and *.h files

    The X prefix is for 2D shaders that are used as Textures in Materials. Materials have an M prefix. Select a Terrain-shader (which is actually a material) and execute this script. You'll see:

    import c4d  
      
    mat = doc.GetActiveMaterial()  
    tpe = mat.GetType()  
      
    for k, v in c4d.__dict__.iteritems() :  
      if v == tpe and k.startswith("M") :  
          print k
    

    Cheers,

    You can find out the plugin ID for anything (objects, tags, shaders, materials, etc) by calling its GetType() method.

    Or even easier: Create a material, add a Terrain Mask Shader. Click on the shader to see its attributes. Then drag the shader preview (the b/w gradient) into the Python console's input field and press Return. You'll get some information, including the plugin ID:

    <c4d.BaseShader object called 'Terrain Mask/Terrain Mask' with ID 1026277 at 0x10eb41090 >
