Python has really wonderful list sorting tools. So I want to take advantage of that to re-arrange objects in the OM based on attributes. Like object positions.
But I can't quite figure it out.
I can get as far as creating the sorted list like this:
import c4d from c4d import gui def main() : posYsorted =  #This will eventually hold the sorted Y vectors sel = doc.GetActiveObjects(False) #Get the active objects for i, obj in enumerate(sel) : #Loop through the selected objects pos = sel[i].GetAbsPos() #Get their positions(all three vectors) posY = pos.y #Get just the Y position vector now posYsorted.append(posY) #Add the Y position for each object to the list posYsorted.sort() #Now sort the list print posYsorted #Now I have a sorted list to use: "posYsorted = ". #How do I re-arrange the selected objects in the OM #So they appear in the OM in the same order as the items in that sorted list? if __name__=='__main__': main()
But now that I have that sorted list.
I can't figure out how to re-arrange things in the OM to match my sorted list.
Any ideas how to do this?
