Get a list of newly created vertices


Let's say I use a polySplit command vertically and horizontally on a polyPlane. Is there a way I can get a list of just the new vertices that are created from this?

Get the number of vertices of your mesh before splitting and then again after splitting. The new vertices ids add on top, they are the difference:
int $numVert0[] = `polyEvaluate -v "polySurface1"`;
 // split
 int $numVert1[] = `polyEvaluate -v "polySurface1"`;
 string $splitVertices = ("polySurface1.vtx[" + $numVert0[0] + ":" + ($numVert1[0] - 1) + "]");
