    Is there a C4D API call for retrieving the PID given a process name? Our plugin spawns a new process when we do IPR (re-rendering) and we need to figure out if the process is still alive.

    Hello and welcome,

    are you talking about threads or processes? As far as I know the Cinema API does not handle processes so you would probably have to use OS functions.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Sebastian,

    Yeah, I was talking about processes. That's too bad. :(
