Help with Simple Script

Recommended Posts



In a bit of a jam. Our upcoming User Group session (Thursday night) was going to be on scripting and was going to be led by a scripting master. He suddenly got called out of town for work. I want to try and answer one direct question from another user about Marionette, who asked how to do the following:


I'd like to create a script that creates a PIO that:

-Creates a circle (and allows the size of the circle to be adjusted in the OIP)

-places text in the center of the circle (and allows size, font, etc. to be adjusted in the OIP).


I imagine this is relatively simple. I've used the 2pt Circle node to create the circle. Just not sure of best way to proceed from there. As I'm in the middle of putting out fires myself I don't have a lot of time to discover the solution and am helpful someone can assist me with this.
