Marionette in Spotlight

Recommended Posts

I am new to marionette and I am wondering if anybody has any tips on using it with the SPOTLIGHT specific tools? Such as, if I use marionette to make a rectangle that is 16' x 32' how can I make it apply the 'create stage' function from Spotlight?

with these commands you should be able to do the job. They should be also available as Marionette nodes.

Otherwise you can create them.




CreateCustomObject(objectName, p, rotationAngle)



The params can be modified with:

I guess I should have underlined 'new'.... I am playing around with what you said, but I am not sure how this links to 'create stage' or what the proper string is for that.

You need to provide the internal plug-in name, usualy this is the name that you see in the OIP.


To get the definite name use this little script (Python):


# Example obj must be selected

hRec = vs.GetParametricRecord(vs.FSActLayer())

print (vs.GetName(hRec ))
