H2 clone an object without its children

Using GetUp I get my parent object I want to use / copy.
So I use GetClone() to clone that parent

However that gives me all the children of that parent.
How to get only the parent and not the children?

Of course I can clone the parent and then remove all (cloned) children, but I''m sure there is a better way?

Look at the documentation of GetClone(), there's a flag for exactly this.

getclone has an optional flag parameter which covers almost all cases.

Ok, I was looking at BaseSelect.GetClone() which has no flags.
I see flags with C4DAtom.GetClone([ flags=0])

However, I''m getting a run time error saying COPY_NO_HIERARCHY is not defined.
Also when using c4d.COPY_NO_HIERARCHY
Importing C4DAtom does not seem to help.

What am I missing?

import c4d
from c4d import C4DAtom
#Welcome to the world of Python
def main() :
    pass  #put in your code here
    obj = op.GetObject()       
    parent = obj.GetUp()  
    source = parent.GetClone(COPY_NO_HIERARCHY)    #create clone

myobj.GetClone(c4d. COPYFLAGS_NO_HIERARCHY) ** ** is correct.

getclone is a member of c4datom.

The R13 manual needs to be updated, R14 is correct.

Just like previous releases of CINEMA, manuals aren't updated neither.
Always make sure that you use the latest updated manual for the current version of CINEMA.
