    ---------Hey, I was wondering if it was possible to keyframe animate using Coffee scripting. ie. If I had a cube at this point, could I move it to that point but it has to reach that point 30 frames later, only using Coffee? Is this possible at all - using C++ or is it just not possible? Thank you in advance.

    Generally it is possible, but I think that keyframing is one of the things that broke in C.O.F.F.E.E. in R8. (Since it uses the new parameter system.)
    In C++ it's possible though.

    What you could do in C.O.F.F.E.E. is of course to implement your own keyframing system, i.e. interpolate the position as necessary yourself.

    To interpolate the position, you mean to divide the final point by the number of frames I wish for it to get there rite? I have done that....just I seem to find a problem when trying to 'store' variables such as the final frame - at each new frame, the value gets reset to nil because it gets reinitialized.  Is there a way to not reset the value to nil at the next frame? I know, this is probably a really simple solution but your help is greatly appreciated. Thanx.
