i want to grab positions and rotations from a textfile and use it to change position and rotation of many model in cinema4D.
what the plugIn i am thinking about should do is:
- open a textfile
- read lists of transforms of about 100 models
- set the animations lenght to a length that is stored in the text file
- change the transforms of the 100 models by name as stored in the file on every frame
i create a scene in cinema4D, export it into a different 3D file format that i can use for realtime animations. i do my realtime animations with these models, and store the positions and rotations in a textfile for every model.
in the end i want to import this file to the original c4d scene and get the transforms back on the original models.
i never used coffee till now, but i have some expirience with lingo(programming language of Direcor) and think i could build a coffee plugIn with some help.
maybe someone can give me some advises wich comands i should use or if it is generally impossible to do something like that.
thanks for help!
