Anybody know the Python command to XRef a given file? I can't turn up anything on a google search, using the search on the Python SDK page doesn't give any meaningful results, and going through all of the main topics on that page and doing a search over the page for "xref" doesn't return anything. Anybody know the python command for this?

This is the only thing I could find that even had "xref" on the page, but that command doesn't seem right...

This creates an empty Xref object in the OM
These are the Xref menu ID#s found in: C:\Program Files\MAXON\Your_C4D_version\resource\res\menus\c4d_m_editor.res
Put the numbers in a CallCommand to execute them.

So XRef is a plugin, not a native C4D command??

Practically everything in C4D is a plugin.
When Maxon adds new things it's usually done with a plugin.
If you use the FindPlugin() function you can see them all. It's a pretty long list of plugins.
All a command really does is execute the proper plugin.

Hrm, any idea of how to actually get to the commands being used by the plugin, or where those scripts are at? If I just give CallCommand the plugin ID, it just opens up the dialog, which is what I was trying to avoid. Same thing with Save Selected Objects As. I was thinking that it would just be similar to a normal file save command, where you just pass it the filename, but no dice.

The IDs for it are here:
I personally never use xrefs.
So I don't really know how much that can be done with them.

Hmmm, it looks like the code for the XRef plugin is in :
C:\Program Files\MAXON\CINEMA 4D R15\resource\modules\ca\characteranim.cdl64
Which seems to be an encrypted file, so you can't see what the actual XRef commands are.
And I'm assuming the "Save Selected Object As" is set up the same way. This makes me a sad panda.
