View Full Version : find poly vertex position in future time

10 October 2006, 07:29 PM
Hello there
How can I get a vertex world position, offset in time (in future frames).
I tried to use the "getAttr -t ($currentTime+5) " on the vertex, but with no success.
I'm stack, I'll appreciate some help on this subject.

try this:

int $old_time = `currentTime -q`;
currentTime ($old_time + 5);

// do the vtx_pos checking here

currentTime $old_time;

Thats a good idea, but how can I get the vertex position in future frames without actualy jumping frames ahead?
My scene is too heavy for jumping frames forward and backwards.
