I tried not to post until i researched a lot, and I just can't get this to work 😛 ...

I just want to get or set Rotation values as HPB ,with COFFEE,  like the cinema4D works, i can only set rotation with SetRotation, and in vectors, but i want to use the HPB degrees values , as in the c4d interface.

Example: i have a cube,  I want to set Rotation 45° to H... or get the H value (45).

Hope someone can save me from this headache 😛
Thanks in advance.

The BaseObject GetRotation() function returns a vector containing the object's HPB rotation. That is, the returned vector x component holds the H value, y is P, z is B. SetRotation() works in the same way.

Try this in the script manager with an object selected:

main(doc, op)
{
     op->SetRotation(vector(0.0, 0.5, 0.0));
}

This will set the P rotation of the object to 0.5 (note that these functions work with radians, not degrees - 0.5 radians is 28.648 degrees).

Note also that this only gets/sets local rotations. If you want the global rotation, you'll have to use a matrix. See the excellent tutorial on matrices in the COFFEE SDK.

Side note:

When dealing with the SDK, you are hopefully aware that all angles are radians, not °... i.e. H is not 45, but π/4 ≈ 0.79.
