User Information:

Cinema 4D Version:    


Is there a way to attach an OpenGL framebuffer to a GeDialog window, similar to the Cinema 4D Viewport?
I could create a framebuffer internally, use glReadPixels() and blit that onto a BaseBitmap, and in turn draw
that on a GeUserArea, but I was hoping there could be a better solution.

Hi Niklas,

I'm afraid I have no better solution to offer. There's no native support for such an endeavour. Sorry.
