Update Render Engine [SOLVED]

    The _R_SOFTWARE_mark">renderer is changed, but the Videopost elements stay the same and do not update. How do I notify cinema to update the VideoPost?

    maybe adding after only c4d.EventAdd() or both   _doc.Message(c4d.MSG_CHANGE)   _and  _c4d.EventAdd()

    _ If do not open render dialog, use __ doc.Message(c4d.MSG_CHANGE) - open it and c4d refresh it(something like it)

    Thanks for the input Ilya, I tried that initially, but it still did not work.

    Here's what I just figured out:

    RenderID_<_gs_>_ = 300001061 #Hardware Renderer
    RenderD_<_gs_>_gs> = doc_.GetActiveRenderData_k">() # Get the currently used Render Data
    _rData_ARE_mark">[c4d.RDATA_RENDERENGINE] = RenderID # Change the Renderer
    Render_VP = c4d.BaseList2D_ER_SOFTWARE_mark">(_OFTWARE_mark">RenderID) # Add the renderer as VideoPost
    _SOFTWARE_mark">RenderData.InsertVideoPost(Render_VP) # Insert the VideoPost
    c4d.EventAdd() # global Update

    I'm not sure if this is the correct way to achieve this being you can accidentally double up your renderer by adding it multiple times.

    I test at winOS and 16.050 - all works for me

    Took another look, it works as you said through a script, however, it doesn't seem to work in a plugin.  Doc. Message (c4d.MSG_CHANGE) returns as True, but does not seem to do anything.

    I am also adding a new RenderData () is that could be what's causing it.

    From Niklas's great tip

    I test without opened render dialog, i don't how to update custom gui if it will be open. If even it will open, user click at name of preset, it will be renew

    (i feel that needs to cut script from unused segments)

    import c4d  
    from c4d import gui  
    from c4d.documents import GetActiveDocument, RenderData  
    #Add renderData  
    doc = GetActiveDocument()  
    TEST_RD = RenderData()  
    TEST_RD.SetName('TEST playblast')  
    if TEST_RD.IsAlive() :  
      print TEST_RD.GetName()  
      if TEST_RD[c4d.RDATA_RENDERENGINE] is not 300001061:  
          TEST_RD[c4d.RDATA_RENDERENGINE] = 300001061  
          Hardware_VP = TEST_RD.GetFirstVideoPost()  
          if not Hardware_VP:  
              vpost = c4d.BaseList2D(300001061)  
              if vpost:  
                  vpost[c4d.VP_PREVIEWHARDWARE_ANTIALIASING] = 16  
                  TEST_RD[c4d.RDATA_FRAMESEQUENCE] = 3

    as show by Ilya, changing the renderer parameter won't automatically create the needed video post. So you have to insert the needed hardware video post yourself. The code could look like this:

    TEST_RD = c4d.documents.RenderData()             
    # edit  
    TEST_RD.SetName('TEST playblast')  
    TEST_RD[c4d.RDATA_RENDERENGINE] = 300001061  
    # add vp  
    vpost = c4d.BaseList2D(300001061)  

    Only the video post can filter the parameter groups of the render settings. See VideoPostData::RenderEngineCheck().

    Best wishes,
