Hi guys,

Just a quick question, is there a list or page somewhere that lists the proper Python commands to create Corona lights or cameras etc.?

With "proper" I mean not "c4d.CallCommand(1032104) # Corona Light" but rather something along the lines of "c4d.BaseObject(c4d.Ocamera)"

Thanks!

Hello,

since our objects are not part of the c4d module, there will not be any c4d.Ocoronalight, however, you can substitute
Code: [Select]
c4d.CallCommand(1032104) with
Code: [Select]
doc.insertObject(c4d.BaseObject(1032104))
Additionally, Corona Camera is a tag and not an object, so you should follow the syntax of creating a camera and then adding a Corona Camera Tag (1032177)

Hi Jan,

This is very helpful, thank you!

Now I can create the objects in memory first, name them etc. and then insert them in the hierarchy like a normal C4D object.

You can't do this with the "c4d.CallCommand" syntax since it just creates the object in the root of the scene.

Cheers,
