    With GetPos I can get the local coordinates of an object. How can I get and set the world coordinates of an object, even if it has parents? Thank you very much in advance.

    The GetMg() function for the BaseObject (looks like COFFEE has this too), then from the Matrix the position is found with GetV0(). (in C++ it is the 'off' member, V0 should be the same thing I think).

    Mmmmm Thank you. And, how do I get the global rotation and scale? Are they also in there?

    Yup, see the COFFEE docs for Matrix, the global matrix contains everything.

    Have a look at the Matrix tutorial in the plugincafe.
    It also includes functions you can copy and paste if you don´t want to get into matrices too much.
    Best
