How can I set up a NormalTag from Python? I can jam a lot of normal data into a VariableTag, but what is the right type? And should it be 4 normals per facet as with UVWs?

Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't appear to be wrapped yet in the Python API. As far as I can tell, it's only possible in C++ currently.

He propably tries to define custom vertex normals for a polygon geometry 😉
If he writes an importer for some kind of geometry format, that is the way to go.

Exactly, what I'm doing includes geometry, and that geometry often already comes with vertex normal supplied.
