Andrzej SkibaAEGP plugin calling idle hook while rendering

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if it's possible to run any code in a AEGP plugin while something is rendering. My plan was to have a separate thread that would call CauseIdleRoutinesToBeCalled every couple of seconds, and that in turn would run my code. The problem is that my idle hook isn't called while something is rendering.

I'll add that my idle hook is called as expected when AE is idle. So the question is am I understanding this wrong, or am I doing something wrong? If my idea is wrong is there any other way to accomplish what I want?

Best regards,
