Thanks for the fast replies didn't check till I got home!
@blastframe Thanks man will definitely play with that code!
@m_adam Thank you so much...That's definitely correct, just so every time I press the button for script it imports the preset with a different name(based on user input) for camera so that it creates a unique layer without merging into current layers...
I'm going to add the C4D file with xpresso setup...It's alot of simple stuff but it helps when timing animation, it includes textures so you can see what I'm trying to achieve..
As you probably know if I copy and paste the camera to another file it destroys my layer structure so I have to change the camera name in the scene and save it before merging the file...Otherwise it merges layers with the same name...Very long just to create a new camera! It's rendering me unable to use this setup on tight deadlines.
If I could change the camera name on import it would create a unique layer SH_001, SH_002, SH_003 (Up to user) etc and the xpresso setup would stay intact for each camera created...
This is hopefully the start of something I can build on regarding camera scripts, if I can grasp the basic process of generating presets and using python to modify them slightly...
Would be awesome and really appreciate you taking the time to help!
Please let me know if this is too complex to recreate? As long as I know how to create layers assign names from user input etc
