Thread: OD How To Script Series.

    OD How To Script Series.

    Not sure where this is going to lead.. but I made two quick videos that were based on two questions I received today. I posted it here in general as well as the python part of the forum, for the specific reason of reaching "non scripters"..

    Thank you both !!! I am finally past 'Hello World' ! If I may ask a question / Is there a way to reveal how a feature has been coded ? I am interested in expanding the parametric objects feature in layout - currently for parametric stuff I go into linux land and export out - would be awesome to be able to do within Lightwave itself. Again, many thanks for the great tutorials and samples !

    You would write your own.. thats the fastest way.. you'd do that in modeler (to start, as its easier). It might be a bit advanced to start with modeler stuff though. Its not difficult, but it requires a bit more knowledge than what I have shown above.

    Thank you .. I appreciate the direction - I am finding that when it comes to programming - as a beginner - its often difficult to even find the correct words to phrase a question ... which likely means time to read more

    We had a great LightWiki hangout last night.. I went into some more detail and more explanations.. and I "believe" i got one of the users to write their first script ... so.. I call it a success.

    This is a fantastic effort by you Oliver. Scripting opens up what one can do and "fix" in a program.

    I would encourage people to not just think this is a LW specific thing. Learning the scripting language in any of the programs you use will open up what's possible to you and improve your workflow.

    Another Installment in the How To Script Series. This time, we'll create a simple Animation Take System for Lightwave:
    Enjoy !
