How can I call MODATA_FLAGS data? I'm trying to check with python effector is the clone visible or not.

def main() :  
  md = mo.GeGetMoData(op)  
  if md==None: return False  
  cnt = md.GetCount()  
  marr = md.GetArray(c4d.MODATA_MATRIX)  
  farr = md.GetArray(c4d.MODATA_FLAGS)  
  for i in xrange(cnt) :  
      if (farr(c4d.MOGENFLAG_CLONE_ON)) :  

I get "TypeError: 'list' object is not callable"

MODATA_FLAGS stores a bit mask. You find an example on how to edit the bits in the "Push Apart Effector" example. You also find symbols for the bits in the documentation.

A simple effector that hides every second clone could look like this:

md = mo.GeGetMoData(op)  
if md is None: return False  
farr = md.GetArray(c4d.MODATA_FLAGS)  
cnt = md.GetCount()  
for i in xrange(0, cnt) :  
     if i % 2 == 1:  
             farr[i] &= ~(c4d.MOGENFLAG_CLONE_ON)  
md.SetArray(c4d.MODATA_FLAGS, farr, True)  

You find more information on bit manipulation in the Python Wiki.
