    Hi all,

    I'm pretty new to scripting Cinema 4D with Python. I'm trying to figure out how to manipulate individual vertices via Python and not having much luck. At the moment I'm just instantiating a box and I'd like to be able to translate its points to get the hang of it. Do I need to make it editable somehow, or do I have direct access to them after I instantiate it this way:

    cube = c4d.BaseObject(c4d.Ocube)

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    No parametric objects are sealed like they are in the editor. You have either to convert them 
    to a PolygonObject (there are several ways, use the search function) or alternatively you could 
    instantiate a PolygonObject directly. The vertices are then accessed with the methods of 
    PointObject, the parent class of PolygonObject.
