I've been trying animate a large amount of objects based on location and frame data from an excel sheet. So far I've read through a dozen different threads both here and other forums, but I'm just not able to understand how to do it. My only previous coding experience is only a small amount of html/css, so having a slightly hard time wrapping my head around this.
Object_id,X-Loc,Y-Loc,Z-Loc,Frame Sphere_01,0,0,0,1 Sphere_01,6,0,0,25 Sphere_01,6,-6,0,40 ,,,, Cube_01,3,3,0,1 Cube_01,3,3,10,25 Cube_01,3,3,0,40 Cube_01,10,3,0,60
This is what I use to test on. The goal is to have the script select each object, set its location at a specified frame and keyframe it. So that I can then manually tweak the transition between them if needed.
So far this is the code I have so far, partially copied from here. And i somewhat understand what it does, I think, it at least moves the sphere in the scene.
import bpy import csv csvfile = open('FilePath/Sphere_Anim.csv') readcsv = csv.reader(csvfile, delimiter=',') for i, row in enumerate (readcsv): if i==0: continue obname = row loc = [float(x) for x in row[1:4]] frame = row bpy.context.object.location = loc
Would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.
