@C4DS Thank your reply! I had to come back to this because I had problems with switching back to object context and this solved that!

@ferdinand Perfect! that seemed to do the trick. I'm not entirely sure what's going on in that function but it works. I tried different index positions and it threw an error but it works for the zero index and that's all I really needed. Thanks for the help!
Hi, this is probably an easy question but I'm placing an effector into a cloner and I want to put it in the first position so the cloner reads it first. I see the InExcludeData has the InsertObject() command which always puts the effector in the last position and no option to place at a specific index. Is there a way to specify which index to place the effector?
@zipit Hi Ferdinand, it seems I spoke too soon. At first, it seems that the ID stays consistent. But I noticed when you go into the plugin manager and reload a plugin all the IDs change again:(
It's possible this won't be an issue for users who aren't reloading plugins but there also may be other things that change the ID of all objects.
Is this a bug perhaps or is there really no guarantee that an ID can stay consistent with an object?
Hi, I searched around for an answer on this but I haven't found anything solid on how to identify an object based on a unique ID of any kind in python. Isn't there something uniquely consistent with each object we can refer to? I need something I can write out to a file and read back later to reference a specific object.
Hi, I have some python effector code created in an older version of C4D and it still works and looks great in the viewport on the current version(R23) but it renders in the picture viewer as if there is no falloff. I'm positive this is due to switching to fields from the old way of using falloffs. How do I get the python effector to respect fields?
I attached the python effector example taken straight from the C4D SDK. It rendered in the picture viewer fine until I upgraded the falloff method to fields and then it renders in the picture viewer with no effect from the falloff? I imagine it has to do with the SetArray command at the end?
