Does anyone have a creative way of accessing material "selection"? I couldn't find a method in the Python SDK or in C++ so maybe there's a workaround?
I appreciate any suggestions.

You can LMB click on most attributes and drag & drop them into the bottom the of the Console or into the script manger to get a rough idea how to get at them.
import c4d def main() : obj = doc.GetActiveObject() if obj is None: return false ttag = obj.GetTag(c4d.Ttexture) if ttag is None: return false if ttag: selection = ttag[c4d.TEXTURETAG_RESTRICTION] print selection c4d.EventAdd() if __name__=='__main__': main()

Totally forgot about this! Thanks Scott.

as Scott shows the "Selection" parameter of a texture tag is just an ordinary parameter that can be accessed like any other parameter. It is just a simple string storing the name of the referenced selection tag. You find some C++ examples on how to handle a texture tag in the TextureTag Manual.
