View Full Version : get a list of verticies in a cluster?

does anyone know how to get a list of the verticies in a cluster?

I can fake it with

select -r cluster;
string $vertList[]= `ls -sl`;

...but that's kind of silly.

I figures there must be some sort of command for this or at least finding out what set it is in....

Every cluster has it's own deformer set associated (for instance cluster1set), you can either see it i the set editor or check cluster.message connection. You can use sets command to get the members out, for instance:

string $vertices[] = `sets -q cluster1set`;

yep, that's exactly what I needed.


But where did you get the ".message" part? I can't find that in the cluster docs. I had to ShowAuxillary in the hypergraph before I could believe it really existed.

Yep, hypergraph is your friend for quick finding all kind of connections. You can also use `listConnections` command.
