Hi,

when importing objects with the "file" Mel command, how can I know what are the newly imported objects?

Thanks!

select -r `listTransforms -geometry`;
$selected = `ls -sl`;

file -i $filename

select -r `listTransforms -geometry`;
$imported = `ls -sl`;
select -r $selected;
select -tgl $imported;
$importedgeo = `ls -sl`;

that's pretty clever!

Another possibility that may or may not make sense depending on what you're doing is to import with a namespace. Then, you can use ls to list everything in the new namespace, and possibly move the objects out of that namespace when you're done (or not.)
