Setting Morph strength keyframe with Python

I’m using Python to “re-target” morphs. I’ve successfully written code to perform object position and rotation animation, but struggling with morph animation.

So far my code successfully finds the object with a morph tag and obtaining the strength value of a specific morph.

Where I’m failing, is trying to create the CTrack.

For doing this with a position value, I use code:
newtrack_y = clear_objectTrack(targetObj, c4d.DescID(c4d.DescLevel(c4d.ID_BASEOBJECT_REL_POSITION), c4d.DescLevel(c4d.VECTOR_Y)))

But for a morph, I’m using which fails:
newtrack = c4d.CTrack(targetObj, c4d.DescID(c4d.CTmorph))

targetObj is the morph tag.

I expect setting and adding a key to the CTrack will be different as well.

Does someone have an example of Setting Morph strength keyframe with Python?

Hi brucek5,

Please have a look at Maxon’s Python Forum about this.
https://plugincafe.maxon.net/login

This should not be spread nor split across fora.

If I’m not mistaken, the Cineversity Wiki has this entry, but even here, I have no idea if it is helpful for Python 3.

All the best

Hi Dr. Sassi, I know this is not the place for this…
I set up an account on PluginCafe, which fails indicating the “send email” executable failed, won’t let me post a questions because I’ve not replied to the email, and I can’t find any “support” links for support for the forum! Any ideas who I can contact to fix this?

BTW- I already looked at the Cineversity Wiki link, which has examples of what I already know, and doesn’t cover Morph tracks.

Hi brucek5,

Sorry that so many things don’t work as you like to have them.

Please open a support ticket. I hope it gets forwarded.

Perhaps try with a different email?

Fingers crossed that one or the other option will work.

Cheers
