Hey guys, That's probably a silly question but I've been wondering this for a while and always figured something else, but now i'm kinda stucked. Using Maya 2018 / Windows
How do get/set small arrays within the Python API ? For example, MfnTransform has the following function prototype: MStatus <https://download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2009help/API/class_m_status.html> getScale <https://download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2009help/API/class_m_fn_transform.html#a142c550cb690c8e1f4a3a15a75fa627> (double scale) const And when calling it from the Python API returns the same prototype: in method 'MFnTransform_getScale', argument 2 of type 'double ' // According to SWIG documentation <http://www.swig.org/Doc1.3/Python.html#Python_nn62> (which Autodesk used for its Python bindings), one should use tuples to do it (but it has to be implemented on the API side) Here is what I tried: import maya.OpenMaya as om selList = om.MSelectionList() selList.add('joint1') oNode = om.MObject() selList.getDependNode(0, oNode) joint = om.MFnTransform(oNode) scale = (0, 0, 0) joint.getScale(scale) But I always get the following error: # TypeError: in method 'MFnTransform_getScale', argument 2 of type 'double ' // Tried with , [0, 0, 0], om.MFloatArray(), None... but was never able to query that property correctly. What's the supposed way of making this work ? Or does it just nit work at all and I'm obliged to use PyMel for those ? Any insights appreciated N. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Python Programming for Autodesk Maya" group.
