Vue has Python scripts. Who knew? I didn’t, or had never investigated them and forgotten. But Ironsoul did, and mentioned it on the forums. So thanks to him. He pointed out that ImpWorks has a large slate of them for free as direct .ZIP downloads. Also a Vue Python scripting tutorial. Vue 2016 is not listed in the scripts compatibility list, but there’s no reason to think the ImpWorks scripts won’t work in the final version.
One such is…
* “Python scripts for loading and saving camera data to and from .CSV files. These scripts are useful for moving camera animations between scenes.”
Could this or something similar work with the “Poser – Export Poser Cameras and Lights” script which saves Poser camera co-ordinates out to .XML? To then pass Poser camera co-ordinates over into Vue, and have Vue locate the camera within an imported Poser scene? Or are the camera co-ordinate systems mutually untranslatable?
Other useful sounding scripts at ImpWorks, though possibly superseded in Vue 2016 by newly native features, are…
* “This Python script coats the outside of an object with an EcoSystem.” it works in Vue 2016. Keep the instances low, and the scales relatively small. Test first with 100. 5,000 is going to take ten minutes to cover a sphere. Could you make a ‘little planet’ with this? You could if you had about two days to tinker. It takes absolutely forever to design one good ‘little planet’ result, and then longer to render the damn thing. Not worth it.
* “Make the sky a solid block of one colour.”
On my PC, Vue Python scripts live at…
