View Full Version : Attribute holder dependency loop problem

04-12-2012, 06:07 AM
I have a problem with Attribute holder, I'm trying to store a parameter "node" the object that the modifier Attribute holder, but it gives me a dependency problem, why?
What is the right way?

ca = attributes MainTank
attribID:#(102999653, 254224688)

parameters Main rollout:RolloutMainTank
MyObj type:#node
rollout RolloutMainTank "Tank Control Panel"

custAttributes.add $.modifiers[1] ca

$.modifiers[1].MainTank.MyObj = $

Yeah, it's the same thing with scripted extended modifiers.
I remember using something like this in one of my projects, try searching more informations about the nodeTransformMonitor, it might help.

Note that it was on a scripted modifier extending the PointCache one.
on attachedToNode obj do
this._node = nodeTransformMonitor node:obj forwardTransformChangeMsgs:false
