    Hello,

    I have a simple C.O.F.F.E.E - Script and when I pull play, it works fine but if I want to render it, it does not work anymore.

    The script goes between 0 and 100% of an align to spline tag.

    I get that Error:
    COFFFEE ERROR!
    (17) Invalid description ID of object
    File: expression
    Line: 6

    var k=1;  
    main(doc,op)  
    {  
    var Spos;  
    var fosp=op->GetFirstTag();  
    if (fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION == 0) k=1;  
    if (fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION == 1) k=0;  
    if (fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION >= 0 & k==1) Spos=0.02;  
    if (fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION <= 1 & k==0) Spos=-0.02;  
    fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION=fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION+Spos;  
    }
    

    I have the same 'animation' with XPresso via flip-flop and the render is ok.

    What is wrong with ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION?

    At render Cinema uses a copy of your document.
    (So you can still keep working on your document while rendering)
    That render document has hidden tags, thus "GetFirstTag()" could be anything.

    You need to search for your tag by its ID.
    You might use a function for this like:

      
    GetTheTag(op,type)   
    {   
    var tag = op->GetFirstTag();   
    while (tag){   
    if (tag->GetType() == type) return tag;   
    tag = tag->GetNext();   
    }   
    return NULL;   
    }   
      
    main(doc,op)   
    {   
    var theTag = GetTheTag(op,ID); // ie GetTheTag(op,Taligntospline) or GetTheTag(op,5699)   
    if(!theTag) return;   
    // Your code   
      
    }

    Thank you, but I get the same error.

    Is there an other way to get the tag?

    Maybe, but this is how I and most of us do I think.
    You might check any spelling in the code, sometimes copy and paste can trick you.
    The following works just fine here (having a Cube with an AlignToSpline Tag to it)
    The cube travels back and forth.

      
    GetTheTag(op,type)   
    {   
    var tag = op->GetFirstTag();   
    while (tag){   
    if (tag->GetType() == type) return tag;   
    tag = tag->GetNext();   
    }   
    return NULL;   
    }   
      
    var k=1;   
      
    main(doc,op)   
      
    {   
    var Spos;   
    var fosp=GetTheTag(op,Taligntospline);   
    if(!fosp) return;   
    if (fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION == 0) k=1;   
    if (fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION == 1) k=0;   
    if (fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION >= 0 & k==1) Spos=0.02;   
    if (fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION <= 1 & k==0) Spos=-0.02;   
    fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION=fosp#ALIGNTOSPLINETAG_POSITION+Spos;   
    }   
    

    Cheers

    Happy New Year,

    Yes you are right. I copy and paste and do not really looked at the syntax. Now it works fine. Thank you.
