Errors in python effector falloffs

Hi guys,

i've reported this to Maxon but they sent me here since they say its not a bug anymore but a programming error inside the python code.  So thought i'd try here instead.

The problem i'm having is with a python effector set to full control with a falloff.  I'm just using the default code that comes in with the python effector yet when you set the falloff to linear, you definately don't get linear falloff.

Before the last R15 update, falloff didn't seem to work at all.  In the update it got looked at but still seems incorrect.  I'm wondering if theres an error in the MoData.GetFalloffs() function.

Heres a file showing the default python effector with the falloff problem

Hey Rich,

the default code in the Python Effector for the "Full Control" mode is not quite right. The falloff is
automatically computed and does not need to be respected in the calculation (ok, well, that doesn't
sound like Full Control, right?). Anyway, just replace the line

        marr[i].off = marr[i].off+fall[i]*100.0


        marr[i].off = marr[i].off + 100.0

Wow, thanks Niklas.  Didn't realise it was that simple.  So with full control mode falloff is always added to the effect your code produces?

Thanks very much

nice one, niklas.
that seems to do the trick, until this is fixed.
