OK hi

i tryed a little bit with coffee and have the following problem

i want show the position of an object of every frame

so easy code:

> <code>
> CallCommand(12414); doc->AnimateDocument(ANIMATE_QUICK); var obj= doc->GetFirstObject(); println(obj->GetPosition());
>
> CallCommand(12414); doc->AnimateDocument(ANIMATE_QUICK); var obj= doc->GetFirstObject(); println(obj->GetPosition());
> </code>

I used that in the console, but the problem is this doesnt invole animations by tags

for example a camera is following a spline

So the camera dont have any Keyframes

Should i use AnimateObject? if, how?

Yours faithfully

I also tried AnimateObject() but this is really curios because

first time it prints the current position of my object

and 2nd time the console outputs the right position

but not of 2 different time but only 2 x the same position

need help 🙂

All you want is get the current position of the object printed in the console?
Put the following in a CoffeeTag (Cinema R11)and press play.

ok maybe i can use the tag temporarily

so that i add this coffetag to an object which returns a value
which i can read from the console but how, and would give me that the right positions of every frame

Object Coffetag

It 's hard to tell what you really want to do.
You say you want to export position and rotation
of an object for each frame.
What exactly is it that you want to export?
And export to what?

currently I write a plugin for exporting a camera

but the problem is that the export dont work with cameras which are controlled by tags, for example a follow spline tag (or which is called, sorry use german version of c4d)

So for testing i use just a console command which shows the problem exactly

by using that with a cameraobject (at first position), animated with keyframes you get the right positions from 2 frames

with a camera with taganimation, you get only 2 times the same position from one position

so if i can fix it, i could take that console command, make a loop and can use it in my plugin

Hope its allowed to link images

so here you can see my problem, i stored the position of each frame in that entryfield

keyframe animation

tag animation

As for getting the animated pos/rot using a script/Menu plugin,
check the thread(CGTalk post #11). that script by Adam Swaab
will animate your document.

Substitute the "CallCommand(12410);//record" line with:

op->GetMg()->GetHPB(); // rotation
op->GetMg()->GetV0(); // position

The export to BHV I have no experience of.
