    Hi together,
    I'm trying to read the data from a normal tag to export it. But if I try to get the data from the tag an error is thrown.
     
    My current code looks like this:

      
    GetNormalData(normalTag)  
    {  
     var data = normalTag->GetData();//Here the error occures  
     var vectorData = new(array, sizeof(data) / 3);  
     var i;  
     for (i = 0; i < sizeof(vectorData); i++)  
     {  
      vectorData = vnorm(vector(data[i * 3 + 0],  
            data[i * 3 + 1],  
            data[i * 3 + 2]));  
     }  
     return vectorData;  
    }  
    

    The error says: Too few parameters
    But a Normal Tag is a VariableTag and in the documentation it is said that VariableTag has a parameterless GetData() function.
    What am I doing wrong?
     
    Thanks for replies,
    UserXXX

    It seems like data access of the normal tag is not supported by COFFEE. I will ask the developers to make sure.

    cheers,

    Thank you, then I'll have to calculate normals before exporting
