Hi, I am almost new to scripting in C4D, but not new to programming. I want to use the User Data Spline interface, and wonder how I can read out the values. I have added a null object to my project. To this object I added an xpresso tag. In the xpresso I added a Python operator.
The Python operator has one user data value, with a Spline interface.

Now - how do I read out the values from this interface? I guess C4D does the math behind the scenes for me? So that I can get the Y value for any given X value between 0 (min) and 1 (max).

Any help much appreciated!

For simplicity, add your position controller and the Spline as Userdata on the xpresso tag.
The nodes already have a SplineData input (I called "curve" in the example).

Hej Lennart, tack söta bror!!!!
Just great. Having searched for this several hours, you came up with the solution in minutes!
As a matter of fact, I want to wrap everything in a Python script, and not use xpresso operators at all. So I use this code:
 
    foo = op[c4d.ID_USERDATA,1]
    somePosition = 0.6
    print int(foo.GetPoint(somePosition).y * 100)
 
This gives me the percentage at position 0.6, where the spline user data scale is Max 1 on the X-axis and Max 1 on the Y axis. Precisely what I am after. The Spline User Data control is invaluable, and now I know how to use it Approve
Thanks again for your help!
