Re: quickShutter

i basically just put a cube in the scene and run the script. at the end, just a empty polymesh is left. no errors. #create a cube and subdivide a little bit Application.CreatePrim("Cube", "MeshSurface", "", "") Application.SetValue("cube.polymsh.geom.subdivu", 24, "") Application.SetValue("cube.poly...
