    Hello, I'm implementing a plugin in C++ and trying to interact with the VRay plugin. I found that I can't access to the custom parameters of the plugin.

    This is the test code that I am using:

    BaseList2D *mat =nullptr;
    //Get the vray plugin for Vray Advanced Material
    BasePlugin *plug = FindPlugin(1020295, PLUGINTYPE_MATERIAL);
    if (plug && plug->Message(MSG_RETRIEVEPRIVATEDATA, &mat))
    	if ( mat != nullptr)
    		BaseContainer *bc = mat->GetDataInstance();
    		if (bc != nullptr)
    			Int32 i = 0;
    			Int32 id = 0;
    			while (true)
    				id = bc->GetIndexId(i);
    				if (id == NOTOK) break;
    					Int32 dt = bc->GetData(id).GetType();
    					GePrint("ID: " + String::IntToString(id));
    					GePrint("   ->Type: " + String::IntToString(dt));

    Any ideas? Tips? Something I should try?

    Any comments are welcome.

    Thank you.

    Hi GonzaloO,

    what custom parameters are you talking about? And why do you think that
    MSG_RETRIEVEPRIVATEDATA sent to the Advanced Material Plugin gives you a BaseList2D* ?
    What are you trying to do?

    Hi Niklas.

    I'm trying to get the Texture Map on the diffuse layer. I need the path of the texture so i can get all the textures used in the scene and save them in a folder. I already did it with TextureTags that is the easy part, but with the VRay materials I can't get the data that is in the GUI.

    I have used the same code with a diferent plugin and worked giving to me a BaseList2D*. I do it with the FBX exporter and get all the parameters used to export the FBX  just changing one line.

    BasePlugin *plug = FindPlugin(FBX_PLUGIN_ID, PLUGINTYPE_SCENESAVER);

    How can I know what the MSG_RETRIEVEPRIVATEDATA return?
    Thank you for your answer

    PS: Sorry for my clumsy english.

    Never mind, my bad.

    I should use the GetParameter() function to get the parameters I need.

    Thanks anyway guys.
