Thanx for more insight of Python-functionality...
I hope the best and most usefull scripts will find an affordable way (Store) to people like me,
who have no clue about Python (it probably goes beyond my capabilities Wink)...
First of all I would have to install 7.4, not done yet, will wait till I really have to.

Don't write yourself off just yet.
At work, we had a work experience person in earlier in the year.  He had never programmed before at all.  We gave him a raspberry pi and pointed him at some Python tutorials.  He picked the pi and python up in about a week.

Will a Python 'function' be forever bound to iClone, or is it exportable...
Like - Is a Pythonian animation, like KT created, baked into the timeline, or is it the timeline needs a running Python script to be enacted?

What KT did was use a python script to create keys in the timeline just as if you manually put them there.
In this case the python script is not needed after you create the keys.

ToyStory -- I think you'll be surprised by how many useful scripts folks will just give away for free here.  Honestly, unless someone is going to put out something really fantastic (think something along the lines of Anima 3, for example, or a whole traffic system, which is something I *do* have in mind but may never get around to doing) I wouldn't expect to pay anything for it.  As rollasoc notes, it's not hard to program in Python and folks who would charge for simple things are going to quickly be surpassed by others willing to fill the void for nothing.

And, rollasoc, I didn't see your idea but I'm glad you came up with the same thought as I did -- great minds think alike <g>.  It will be interesting to see if you have the same thought as I have for the next two here (one is finished and I'll display it tomorrow: it's mocap with a completely different approach).

That’s just wonderful mike! Can’t wait to see what else you come up with. This is a great start to what I’m guessing is going to be a lot more great stuff from ya!

Okay, yet one more piece of the puzzle (we're getting there -- I only have one more piece to show, but it's a very useful piece to almost anyone.  I'll try and post it no later than tomorrow, but maybe even this afternoon if I can do it before I consume alcohol :>Wink.

Almost finished moving from my capital city back to my home town so I've only been able to look at these so far but I can see that what you are showing is going to be very helpful to getting my head around this part of the process......making useful things happen in projects....


So far, a couple of weeks ago, I have only been looking into setting up Python User Interface so far. One of the things I will be looking into soon will be python scripts that will make some of my morph animation objects easier to animate and I am sure I will think of plenty of other things as I progress.
I want to thank you for what you have shown here. Certainly going to assist me to get my head around these sorts of processes much quicker

Thanks again for everyone's kind words and the encouragement to keep showing these things.

Here's the last piece for Robby -- this does open up some other ideas for exploration, but for at least this particular prop animation I am finished.

This is totally rad Mike! Smile

If you combine those last two you've shown you could have "auto-motion" in iClone, like CT8 has.
