I recently had reason to investigate the order in which things are loaded from workgroups, and here’s what I found:
- Workgroup plugins are loaded first.
Softimage goes through all the workgroups, in the order they are listed in the Plug-in Manager, and loads all plugins that are not in an add-on.
- Workgroup addons are loaded second.
Again, Softimage goes through all the workgroups in list order, loading add-on plugins.
What was my motive for looking into this? A plugin that was trying to get the OriginPath of a plugin in the SItoA addon. That was never going to work, because the plugin was loaded before the SItoA addon.
I tested this on Windows 7, not Linux.
