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!
