Hi Jops,

Sorry, forgot to tell you about it. :) That may be due to the symbolcache Cinema 4D generates. If
you change your plugin resource, Cinema might not be able to detect this and the symbolcache
won't change. The symbols in this file are loaded and then embedded into the c4d module, instead
of parsing all resources once again (which would delay startup time). You can manually delete the
file from your plugin while developing, but make sure your plugin does not delete it when you have
released it.

The file is located at %appdata%/MAXON/Cinema 4D RXX/prefs. It is called coffeesymbolcache in
R12 and symbolcache in R13+.

Best,
Niklas

Hi Niklas,

but then it seems to me that handling the way I do is more stable?
if I release a new version of the plugin I have to take care about the cache on every computer the former version was installed?

best regards

ok maybe I have to explain something... that might be the root of the problem.

I have to find out If the scene is rendered in the picturefiewer or in the editorview. therefor I check:

if doc == documents.GetActiveDocument() :

this works fine for the picturemanager and the editor view but maybe not for the renderfarm.

the plugin is installes on every client.

You should get the correct doc with:
doc = mytag.GetObject().GetDocument()

Thanks lennart,

that was by the way something I was looking for, as GetOrigin doesnt work for a plugin :)

but:

I actually was looking for a possibility to find out if the szene is rendered in the pictureviewer, the renderfarm or the editorview.
this little function works good for the editor and pictureviewer, but not for the netrender (unfortunately :(

  
          def is_render() :   
               # find out if rendered in Pictureviewer   
               if doc == documents.GetActiveDocument() :   
                    return True   
               else:   
                    return False   

best regards

ok one step further:

this code works for pictureviewer and batchrender but not for netrender :(

  
          def is_render() :   
               # find out if rendered in Pictureviewer, batchrender and net   
               if c4d.documents.GetBatchRender().IsRendering() : # finds out if batchrender   
                    return False   
               if doc == documents.GetActiveDocument() : # finds out if pictureviewer   
                    return True   
               else:   
                    return False   

so maybe someone knows how I can find out If the scene is rendering with netrender?

thanks a lot

Have you tried to call c4d.CheckIsRunning(c4d.CHECKISRUNNING_EDITORRENDERING) and c4d.CheckIsRunning(c4d.CHECKISRUNNING_EXTERNALRENDERING)?

Hi Yannick,

thanks again. unfortunately I didnt find it in the SDK searching for render and rendering :(

but now you told be :) thanks

c4d.CheckIsRunning(c4d.CHECKISRUNNING_EDITORRENDERING)
not working ... but I dont need it anyway

c4d.CheckIsRunning(c4d.CHECKISRUNNING_EXTERNALRENDERING)
working for pictureviewer and netrender but not for batchrender

so to include batchrender the function looks loke this:

  
          def is_rendering() :   
               if c4d.CheckIsRunning(c4d.CHECKISRUNNING_EXTERNALRENDERING) or c4d.documents.GetBatchRender().IsRendering() :   
                    return True   
               else:   
                    return False   

it seems to work. great!

thank you all for the help
