Hi Guys

How do I assign the changing numerical values of an object's rotation to a real-time MoGraph Text display?

I need to send data from a virtual robot's axis values to a programmer who will input the values to a real robot.

I also need the real-time timecode in a 30fps format to be created in MoGraph text too...

Thanks!

in xpresso feed the rotation you want to watch through a Degree node (set to Radians to Degree) to the Object Properties/Text port of the MoText object. If you don't know xpresso I can send an example.
The time is easy enough if you want frames - same thing feed the Frames port of a Time node the the MoText Text port but if you want seconds:frames it's trickier as the Time node doesn't have a SMPTE out. But it can be constructed. What time output do you need? Just the frame number or something more complex?

Ah thanks Brian

It'd be great if you can show me an example

And yes, i do need seconds & frames! Cheers
