Yes, that's it. I haven't written a node like this either, but it looks like you need to write a "geometry filter" node (aka a "deformer"), which is the sort of node that moves verts, like a skincluster or a lattice deformer. Check out "Writing a Deformer Node" here: http://help.autodesk.com/view/MAYAUL/2018/ENU/?guid=__files_Writing_a_Deformer_Node_htm -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Python Programming for Autodesk Maya" group.
