I want to do a callcommand - c4d.CallCommand(17013) # Material - from a python node within xpresso.
It does not seem to work.
Is it possible to do a callcommand from within a python node in xpresso?
I want to change the manger using xpressso.

Hi Pim,

it is not possible to invoke a CallCommand() call from a Python Node. The CallCommand() function
must be called from the main thread, just like GUI operations. You can however do this from a C++
XPresso Plugin (still not from the calculation procedure, but right at the next call you receive in the
main thread).
