UNSOLVED Assignment Grouped

How can I use Python to select the sub-objects for a color assignment for grouped objects zero objects?

Hello @WDP,

thank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately your question is not clear for me. I assume you want to retrieve all children of a null object, so that you can add a material to them (to change their diffuse color)?

It would be best if you could clarify your question. I have posted however an example for what seems likely to be your goal.

Cheers,
Ferdinand

The code:

yes I would like to change the view color for the wireframe model

Hello WDP,

you mean the display color of an object?

It is just a parameter you can set as any other.

import c4d

def main():
    """Sets the display color of the selected object to red.
    """
    if op is None:
        return
    
    # Set the "Display Color" parameter to "Custom"
    op[c4d.ID_BASEOBJECT_USECOLOR] = c4d.ID_BASEOBJECT_USECOLOR_ALWAYS
    # And set the "Color" parameter to red.
    op[c4d.ID_BASEOBJECT_COLOR] = c4d.Vector(1, 0, 0)
    
    c4d.EventAdd()

if __name__=='__main__':
    main()

Ferdinand
