Setting the format options of an OpenEXR [SOLVED]

    I'm trying to automate the setting of the render preferences, but I got stuck at the following.
    I can't seem to find out how to put the openEXR format to "Lossy 16-Bit float, Zip, in blocks of 16 scan lines"

    I found out that you can access the options menu using [c4d.RDATA_SAVEOPTIONS]. But after that i'm at a loss.

    I hope someone can help me.

    Hello and welcome,

    the documentation does not contain the information on the proper IDs. To set the format settings you have to acess the RDATA_SAVEOPTIONS BaseContainer and add a new subcontainer with the details:

    rd = doc.GetActiveRenderData()  
    container = rd.GetData()  
    # OpenEXR  
    container[c4d.RDATA_FORMAT] = c4d.FILTER_EXR  
    saveOptions = container.GetContainerInstance(c4d.RDATA_SAVEOPTIONS)  
    # OpenEXR options  
    bc = c4d.BaseContainer()  
    bc[0] = 3 # ZIP  
    bc[1] = True # clamp to half float  
    # save OpenEXR options  
    # save render data  

    best wishes,

    That is exactly the thing.
    Just started learning python, and like you said, I couldn't find the format settings in the documentation.

    Thanks a million!
