Poser Python tutorial?



  • I'll make this quick... any chance of someone making a quick tutorial of how to write a Python program for Poser for a beginner like me? I'm not looking for anything elaborate. Maybe something like make a clock or how to turn off and on a Poser light. Load Poser cube or figure. etc.etc. I need something Poser oriented that I can learn from without it being too difficult.



  • I don't program but here is a good link:

    https://wiki.python.org/moin/BeginnersGuide



  • import poser

    scene = poser.Scene()

    for light in scene.Lights():

    if light.LightOn():
    
        light.SetLightOn(0)  # Turn light off
    
    else:
    
        light.SetLightOn(1)  # Turn Light on
    

    scene.Draw()



  • Example to help finding an object in the hierarchy (can be tedious, depending on the number of sub-items...)

    Open the hierarchy window, select an item from which the search will be done, and run the script you will find here.

    Reading existing simple python scripts is a good start.

    There is a python manual that comes with Poser, or at least it did with P10/2014. You might also check out PhilC's site for an extensive lesson manual he created. I bought it a year or two ago but haven't worked my way through it yet.
