GetPosition object in new world

Hi! Sorry my bad English

I am looking for the location of the object, on the new coordinate system

import c4d
from c4d import gui, modules
from c4d.modules import snap
#Welcome to the world of Python

def main() :
    world = snap.GetWorkplaneObject(doc)
    matrix = world.GetMg()
    rotation = world.GetAbsRot()

old_pos = op.GetAbsPos()
    new_pos =
    print new_pos
if __name__=='__main__':
    main() works for all offset plans, but not rotated...

If I have an offsett rotated plane, how do I get my object's position in the new world coordinate?

GetAbsPath != absolute Position.

Please take a look at the Python C4D documentation. At the bottom of the c4d.Matrix reference page there is a chapter called "The Matrix has you". I hope this helps to clearify a few things.

Bye, s_rath

thanks s_rath...  I had already read the c4d. matrix but I did not understand...

You can you explain better?
