Question Rewrite some functions in python??

well ...question is pretty simple
I've just imported Numpy module to work with cinema4d python

simple problem is...numpy is like 30-100 times faster than normal for loop iteration ...how to use it's loop to iterate inside cinema4d functions
example :
Object.GetPoint(x)
Object.GetAllPoints()
how to make the second line work using my own module

You can't. If you want to work with the points in combination with numpy, you have to convert the Vectors you get by Object.GetAllPoints() to a representation numpy can work with, and reconvert it after the work with numpy was done.

hmm..well ..
assume i did an algorithm with python which transfer data points from 1 object to another ..
same algorithm in C++ will run faster?

Of course it will. You would simply skip the whole overhead of Pythons for-loop, function-calls, execution, etc.
