    Hi, I am very new to developing and have been reading Rui Batista's COFFEE book, which is excellent.
    I am trying to write a pluggin that will export rotation data of one axis of an object to a servo driver, so that I can animate a model. My plan so far is to get the rotation info, convert it to a servo range(-23 to 230) then export the info in realtime as the animation plays in the timeline.
    Is this possible with COFFEE or should I be looking at C++.
    Any pointers greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
    Conor

    This should be possible with C++. You need of course some software interface to the servo driver.

    Thanks Matthias, the servo controller comes with a variety of software drivers, one which is written in c++, does that mean I can use the c++ script that they have supplied within my c4d plugin to operate the servos from c4d.

    cheers
