    Hi,
    I'm trying to recreate a simple Xpresso setup with COFFEE in which a spline stays pinned to a polygon mesh. My setup appears to be correct, but the spline in my COFFEE setup will only appear pinned to the polygon mesh when it's selected in the Object Manager in point mode.

    My C4D file is available at the link below and I've included some screengrabs of my setup. I would really appreciate it of somebody could tell me what I'm doing wrong...

    As in your other thread I've added what's needed.
    The global calculation and most important the Update
    Message. As stated in the SDK, when dealing with modifying
    , the Update is important

    Cheers
    Lennart

      
    main(doc,op)   
    {   
    var spline = doc->FindObject("Spline.1");   
    var pList = new(array,4);   
      
        pList[0] = 1;   
        pList[1] = 7;   
        pList[2] = 5;   
        pList[3] = 3;   
      
    var i;   
    var pointPos;   
      
    for(i=0; i< sizeof(pList); i++)   
    {   
       pointPos = op->GetPoint(pList[i]);   
       pointPos = op->GetMg()->GetMulP(pointPos); // Global positions   
      
       spline->SetPoint(i, pointPos);   
       spline->Message(MSG_UPDATE); // <- IMPORTANT   
    }   
    }
