First, I am a complete nube and this is my first post. I have a project where a MoText object is rendered and I want to make the text field configurable programmatically. I would like this to happen preferably from outside of C4D.
From my VERY preliminary poking around I cannot find anything that would do that from the command line. So it seems that I would have 2 options:
1: Use Melange, as I read that it can create / modify C4D project files directly
2: Maybe use python or coffee scripting to read this value in from a text file and populate the text property of motext with the value
Are either of these reasonable approaches, if so are there any examples that you can point me to. Or if neither is a good option, can someone point me in the right direction? I'm currently using R17.
I appreciate any help that you can give me.
