Add Position Velocity Port



  • Hi all,

    I'm trying to add the position velocity port to a node with it's ID, but no luck!

    POS_VEL_ID = 40000008
    out_port = obj_node.AddPort(c4d.GV_PORT_OUTPUT, POS_VEL_ID )
    

    Is anyone having the same problem or I'm missing something?

    Thank you in advance! ☺



  • Where to you get the velocity port manually?
    I tried it on a cube but I couldn't find any. Is it specific to an object?

    You can find it for the output of any object. I'm using R19 Studio, not sure if that makes a difference!

  • Hi,

    it is probably not what you were looking for, but I can remember quite a few posts in the old forum which dealt with c4d.modules.graphview and its shortcomings when it comes to the instantiation and modification of nodes. I just tested it and it does not work for me too. AddPortIsOK() returns True for your ID, but AddPort() returns then None. Apparently these bugs have not been fixed yet?

    Hi Zipit,

    Yeah that seems about right! I will have another look into the old forum and see if something pops up.
    This was just a quick prototype for show the position velocity of the object in a user data field. Probably going to have to do it another way.

    Cheers for your help! 👍



  • Hello,

    Sorry for the late reply.
    This was a bug (with other ports also) and it's fixed for the next release.
