    Hello,

    I like to know how I can switch the layout with the CallCommand(56000).
    My intention is to switch maybe from start layout to animation layout or an own layout definition per plugin.

    Thanks
    Marky

    Hi.
    I use python script for this:

    import c4d, os  
    from c4d import gui, documents  
    #Welcome to the world of Python  
      
      
    def main() :  
      c4d.documents.LoadFile(c4d.storage.GeGetC4DPath(c4d.C4D_PATH_LIBRARY_USER)+os.sep+"layout"+os.sep+"layoutname.l4d")  
      
    if __name__=='__main__':  
      main()
    

    Cheers
    Phil

    Oh thanks, it's working.

    One question, it's possible to start an python script automatically if Cinema4d started?

    Hi Marky,

    I think you could use -layout command line argument. 
    This command lets you load a specific layout when starting CINEMA 4D.

    Afaik, there is (or can be) a startup.py in the user preferences folder, is that correct?

    A special script python_init.py can be defined in  {USER_FOLDER}/prefs/python to execute some Python code on startup of CINEMA 4D before any other Python stuff is loaded.
    This information is included in the Frequently Asked Questions of the docs.

    Is there no way to have all C4D applications source from one common python script folder for the facility?  Most production houses have common code development areas, can we not change the python source directory to a central server location?
