No worries! Thanks for the reply, it was very helpful as a starting point. I ended up using the c4d.GetWorldContainerInstance() and then c4d.WPREF_AUTOSAVE_DEST_PATH to get the custom filepath and then just a SaveDocument with the AUTOSAVE flag seems to be doing the trick. thanks again!
Super new to coding in Python and with C4D. I'm making a script, and I was wondering if there is a way to add a few lines so that when you execute a script, it also triggers an Autosave. That is, the current file will get saved to its Autosave location with the date and time appended, but your current document will stay the same.
