Say I have a cube and select the top 4 points. How do I move,rotate, scale that 4 points with python.:blush:

I came this far:

Pnt_Obj = doc.SearchObject("Cube")
    Pnts_List = [1,3,5,7]    
    for i in Pnts_List:
        Vec = Pnt_Obj.GetPoint(i)
        PosX = Vec.x
        PosY = Vec.y
        PosZ = Vec.z
        Pnt_Obj.SetPoint(i,c4d.Vector(PosX, PosY + Input1, PosZ))
        Pnt_Obj.Message (c4d.MSG_UPDATE)

The problem is that it do adjust with the slider "Input1" but it just keep on adjusting because it keeps updating the Vector of the points. Please :cry: how do I fix this??

This might help (the actual math). Another "dirty way" is to create a cluster from the selected points rotate the cluster and then kill the object. It's a lot more work to do, and slower, but will get the result you want.
