Title: New ASL Functions in v0.97b update
Post by: Steve on June 05, 2008, 07:07:09 am
There are some new functions in the v0.97b update that might be useful:

1. shape.GetNumEdges(), etc.

2. write to the console: open("$console", "w");

3. mesh.DeletePoint(), etc.

4. functions to access to attributes,

5. Spline access functions.  You can make cool looking chains and ropes that follow the shape of a spline!

Does the console write only work from an export script?

That spline access function looks awesome!  I definitely look forward to some scripts for that one!  It could make things like chains much easier.  Congratulations Steve, this is looking wonderful.

The console write works for export scripts and command scripts (including those with a .txt suffix that you run by selecting the file).  No IO works for parameteric scripts - but I could make an exception for the console.  File IO would slow parameteric scripts down a lot because they are run over and over as you drag the mouse.

hihosilver - I'm glad you like the spline funstions.  DoctorStopMo ought to as well judging from his post.  That's what inspired me to add the spline stuff :)
