View Full Version : Make Selected Curves Dynamic (Python)

10-19-2011, 07:28 PM
Hey everyone,

I was wondering how you would do the same thing in MEL using Python.

I want to make my curve dynamics, and usually I would just do makeCurvesDynamicHairs, but is there a Python command to do this. I want my end result to be a dynamic joint chain.

I hope this is enough information, let me know if you want anymore!

whatIs makeCurvesDynamicHairs;tells us that makeCurvesDynamicHairs is a MEL script, which means it's pretty unlikely there is a python equivalent. Opening up that script and seeing how much MEL code there is inside it only reinforces this doubt.
You can still call MEL scripts inside python, you don't have to have pure python for everything.
import maya.mel as mel
mel.eval('makeCurvesDynamicHairs %d %d %d' % (attach, snap, match)):nathaN
