Help translating this script to Python?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!


I’m here trying to convert this small COFFEE script to Python, without luck… :-/


Could you give me a helping hand?


It’s an interesting script to toggle between Default Perspective and the linked camera(s) on Stage Object.


Specially useful for when you have, say, 10 different animated cameras (linked to a single animated Stage Object) and you need to frequently switch between those cameras view and the Default Perspective.


Here is the COFFEE script by B.Horgan:


// CamSwitch.CSC
// CamSwitch V1 B.Horgan 2010 - works with Stage Object to toggle between editor and and linked cameras in stage object
//     (just switches the stage on and off and refreshes the view )
// NB - rename the Stage Object to 'CamSwitch' for the script to work

var switcher,state;

switcher=doc->FindObject("CamSwitch");//Find the Stage object (searching by name)
if(switcher)//if the stage object exists - 
if (state==0)
CallCommand(12147);//redraw view to activate linked camera in Stage Object
CallCommand(12202); // Switch to the editor camera


Thank you so much in advance! :-)
