Is there any way to detect if the viewport is currently playing an animation (ie, the user pressed the play button)?

I've got a fairly computationally expensive plugin here, and I'd like to switch it into a preview mode when the scene is playing back in the VP, since otherwise things grind to a halt while C4D is waiting for all the tags to execute.

Is there any way to do this?

You can use the CheckIsRunning() function for that. 😉
