Hello mates.

I am woundering how i can get the texture path(s) & filename(s) from the selected material.
im trying to return a list containing the path+filename foreach channel in the material.
Anyone got an idea how i can do this ?


will only reurn the filename, but i need full path + filename
i tried my luck on c4dcafe, but no one seems to know this.

You will have to get the document path and add it to your filename. This should do what you want.

dPath = doc.GetDocumentPath()
print (dPath+"	ex"+filename)

Hi and thanks for your reply.

NameError: global name 'doc' is not defined

This is my plugin code.

import c4d  
import os  
from c4d import documents, gui, plugins, bitmaps  
PLUGIN_ID = 1011310  
class MyDialog(gui.GeDialog) :  
   def CreateLayout(self) :  
     self.SetTitle("My Plugin")  
     self.GroupBegin(id=1013,  flags=c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT,cols=2, title="Texture")  
     self.GroupBorderSpace(10, 15 ,10 , 5 )  
     self.AddStaticText(id=1003, flags=c4d.BFH_LEFT, name=" Drag the Material here:")  
     self.linkbox = self.AddCustomGui(3000, c4d.CUSTOMGUI_LINKBOX, "", c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT|c4d.BFV_SCALEFIT,0 ,0)  
     self.GroupBegin(id=1013,  flags=c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT,cols=1, title="Channels")          
     self.GroupBorderSpace(10, 15 ,10 , 5 )          
     self.AddCheckbox(2001, c4d.BFH_LEFT, 0, 0, 'Color Channel')  
     self.AddCheckbox(2002, c4d.BFH_LEFT, 0, 0, 'Specular Channel')  
     self.AddCheckbox(2003, c4d.BFH_LEFT, 0, 0, 'Normal Channel')  
     return True  
  def Command(self, id, msg) :  
      # Check if its the id of the link box  
      if id == 3000:  
          tex = self.linkbox.GetLink()  
          # check if the link box obj is a material  
          if tex is None or tex.GetType() != 5703:  
              gui.MessageDialog("No Texture selected")  
              return -1  
              filename = tex[c4d.MATERIAL_COLOR_SHADER][c4d.BITMAPSHADER_FILENAME]  
              #dPath = doc.GetDocumentPath()  
      return True  
class MyPlugin(plugins.CommandData) :  
  dialog = None  
  def Execute(self, doc) :  
      # Create main dialog  
      if self.dialog is None:  
          self.dialog = MyDialog()  
      return self.dialog.Open( dlgtype = c4d.DLG_TYPE_ASYNC, pluginid=PLUGIN_ID, defaultw=450, defaulth=200, xpos=-1, ypos=-1)  
if __name__ == "__main__":  
  path, fn = os.path.split(__file__)  
  bmp = bitmaps.BaseBitmap()  
  bmp.InitWith(os.path.join(path, "res/icons", "icon.tif"))  
  okyn = plugins.RegisterCommandPlugin(PLUGIN_ID, "MY Plugin", 0, bmp , "OSM", MyPlugin())  
  if okyn:  
      print "MyPlugin started"   

i got it to work. i had to include this.

doc = c4d.documents.GetActiveDocument()  
dPath = doc.GetDocumentPath()  

Altho i dont like this method since one have to know the name of the texture dir.
Making the plugin useless on projects where textures are not saved in a common dir, Ie: tex

but anyway. thanks for your help
