Question Generating a spline from a set of vectors with python.

Hello all,

I'm fairly new to both python and Cinema 4D and was having difficulties while trying to use the SplineObject class to create a spline from a set of x, y , and z vectors.

From what I understand you would need to create a set of points and then use them to create the spline.

I am having trouble initializing both the point and spline objects and am also unsure of how to use the point objects to create the spline.

Is this the correct way to preform this action or am I totally off?

the splineobject class is derrived from the pointobject class, so every splineobject is
a pointobject / contains the members of a pointobject. something like this.

    vl0 = [c4d.Vector(), 
           c4d.Vector(10, 0, 0),
           c4d.Vector(30, 15, 0),
           c4d.Vector(80, 20, 0),
           c4d.Vector(150, -30, 0)]
    cnt = len(vl0)

    linearSpline = c4d.SplineObject(cnt, c4d.SPLINETYPE_LINEAR)

Thank you!

I see where I got mixed up with the different sub classes.
