Hello, how to adress the Mograph cloner offset (cloner is set to object (spline) and i want just to edit the part in the code
mat[c4d.TEXTURETAG_OFFSETX] = traveled / 500.0
and make it work, but i am affraid i will need to edit more, for example to find the object. I am noob about python or any language, so could you help me someone please :)

Hi @Ofcourse88 welcome in the plugincafe community
I didn't understand what's your problem, can you try to explain what you exactly want to do, and in which context are you (script editor, Python generator, python tag?)
If you want to change the Mograph Cloner offset parameter value, then doing
op[c4d.MG_SPLINE_OFFSET] = 0.5
Will set the currently selected cloner to 0.5.
To know parameter id, you can use the console for more information see Console - Drag and Drop.

I just answered this on CGSociety, as the thread was started there:
