View Python: Finding Plugin IDs
Sometimes you’ll need to find the ID of an installed plugin or built-in C4D module. For instance, you might want to save/export using a format other than the ones for which there’s specific FORMAT constants.
FilterPluginList offers an easy method to get all the plugins and ids for a specific type currently installed in CINEMA 4D.
To get all the SceneSaver (3D export format) plugins, use this code:
for p in c4d.plugins.FilterPluginList(c4d.PLUGINTYPE_SCENESAVER,True): print p.GetID(), " = ", p.GetName()
