After three days working with Python I'm making good progress, but have hit a wall. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
I'd like to add layers to my shader properties and assign images to them....
I'm having a difficult time figuring how exactly to do this. I'm Working in R16, so possibly this is not supported in this SDK?

using the API it is only possible to read the existing layers of a Layer shader but it is not possible to add layers or reorder layers. See also "Adding a layer to the mat color channel"

Thank you Sabastian,
Do you know if this is resolved in R17?
Online documentation suggests that there is added support for Layer Shader Layers, and I see the following function exists:
Your time is appreciated...

as described in the documentation, SetParameter() is used to edit the parameters of an existing layer, not to add a new one. This hasn't changed with R17.
