How to Determine if an Object Supports Effectors?

What is the best practice to check to see if an object is a MoGraph object and supports effectors? I'm currently manually building a list of object ID's and checking against that.
def is_cloner(obj) : CLONER_IDS = [ 1018544, # Cloner 1018545, # Matrix 1018791, # Fracture 1018957, # MoInstance 1019268, # MoText 1018655, # Tracer 440000054 # MoSpline ] if obj.GetType() in CLONER_IDS: return True return False
This works fine until a new cloner object is introduced (like the new Voronoi Fracture), at which point my plugin doesn't behave as expected and I have to add the new ID and push out an update to all users. Is there a method in the mograph module for checking this?

all these objects are an instance of Obasemogen. Just note, this is also true for the PolyFX, but as it takes effectors as well, it's probably even a desired side effect.

Perfect. Thank you!
"""Is it a MoGraph Generator? """ import c4d from c4d import gui #Welcome to the world of Python def main() : if not op: return if op.IsInstanceOf(c4d.Obasemogen) : print op.GetName() + " is a MoGraph Generator!" else: print op.GetName() + "is not a MoGraph Generator." if __name__=='__main__': main()
It seems like "Obasemogen" isn't documented in the Python SDK, so I'd suggest adding it.
