    Hi,

    i wrote a small coffee expression that gives a spline some physics like gravity and friction and now i want to convert it to C++.

    Im not sure what kind of plugin to use though.

    I started with a tagPlugin and did the 'main-loop' in the Execute function.

    The spline doesnt update when i press play, but it changes when the init function is invoked = when i change parameters.
    When i use the draw function instead of execute to change the points, it changes all the time, not just during animation. (my addToExecution had EXECUTION_ANIMATION btw)

    Should i use another plugin type?

    The modifyObject-function of the objectClass looks like it could be what i need..

    thanks,
    cineast

    i think im goin for the tag, deformer doesnt seem to be the right choice for me.

    I added a MSG_UPDATE to my execute now so the spline gets updated in the viewport.

    The only problem now is that it gets updated not only when i press play, but also when i move sth and so on..
