Hi all,

I was wondering if there is some line of code that allows me to detect if automatic keyframing is turned on. Does anybody know? I've searched through the python documentation but I can't seem to find it. Thanks in advance!

I looked up the Plugin ID of the Autokeying command in the "Customize Commands..." window.

print c4d.IsCommandChecked(ID_AUTOKEYING)

Thanks for the reply!

However, it doesn't seem to work in a python node in Xpresso. When I put in the code like this:

import c4d
#Welcome to the world of Python

def main() :
    global Output1
    Output1 = 1
    ID_AUTOKEYING = 12425
    print c4d.IsCommandChecked(ID_AUTOKEYING)

It keeps printing False after I turned autokeying on. Any thoughts?

Executing commands [via CallCommand()] is restricted to the main thread (and expressions are executed in their own thread). Maybe this applies to IsCommandChecked() as well.

Ok, I'll try a different approach. Thanks for the info!

just want to confirm that Niklas is right, these have to be called from main thread.
