Get XY Location of Marionette Object / Object Node


d.o

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm trying to create an object node / a plugin object that displays a circle + a text showing the x,y location of the circle.

 

I've read in several places that this should be possible using Get Symbol Location and I've tried many variations but none worked.

 

In the picture attached I placed the Object Node at 0/0 but it shows 1e+100, 1e+100.

 

I've tried VW 2019 and 2020 on Mac.

 

I would appreciate any help.

David

Thanks @m.graf

 

The reason I couldn't find it is that the node is actually named PIO Handle, but the text displaying on the node when inserted is Parent PIO.

 

It is located in the Object Info portion of the Default nodes.

 

Thankfully the nodes are color coded by group which made it easier to find.

This has always bothered me! I'll see if there's an opportunity to coordinate those names, otherwise I'll try to throw a tag in there for searching at the very least.
