I need to allow user to select shader in description of TagData plugin. Right now, I have a simple


in my tmytag.res, nothing special in the code. When this is used from AM with only tag selected, everything works as expected, the problem is when I select object (camera in my case) with this tag attached and try to load texture from tag's tab - it won't load anything and, when started with attached debugger, C4D will break debugger with "CRITICAL: Stop" message (file common\basecontainer.cpp(444)).

Is this a bug? Or we shouldn't use SHADERLINK in tags?

indeed, this seems to be a bug. Thanks for reporting this, a bug report was filed.

The only way to prevent a tag from being displayed with the host object is to make the tag invisible (by not setting TAG_VISIBLE) or to allow multiple instances (by setting TAG_MULTIPLE).

Best wishes,
