    Hi,
    does anyones know how to change the decimal precision of vector's number? I'm tryng to read a cloud of points from an external ascii document and is very important to have a least of 8 decimals. 
    It seems to me that cinema 4d work always with 3 decimals. Is it possible to increase the accuracy?

    I've found this command "getcontext().prec = n" in a python documentation but doesn't work.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thank you.

    Luther

    Hi, the numbers are just cut off for the user. Internally C4D uses double precision.

    Hi,
    thank you for your answer. I had guessed as much! Is ti possible in python to unlock this limitation, for example when I print the coordinates of a vector?

    Printing the coordinates of a vector should be fine from scratch:

    p=c4d.Vector(1.2345678)
    print p.x #output 1.2345678
