I want to access to this data:

uv vertice and 2d cursor coordinates example

I tried:

Exporting UV coordinates



but all that return the 3dview vertices coordinates....

some ideas?

    $\begingroup$ Space.ImadeEditor.cursor_location maybe? $\endgroup$ – Denis Apr 3 '15 at 22:35

This will print the uv coordinates of each vertex and (x, y) position in the UVmap editor then the cursor location

import bpy

ob = bpy.context.active_object

for area in bpy.context.screen.areas:
    if area.type == 'IMAGE_EDITOR':   #find the UVeditor
        cursor = area.spaces.active.cursor_location   # get cursor location
        if  area.spaces.active.image :                #get image dimension
            x = area.spaces.active.image.size[0]
            y = area.spaces.active.image.size[1]
            x = y = 256

        for v in ob.data.loops :
             uv = ob.data.uv_layers.active.data[v.index].uv   #get uv coo

            #calculate and print the position in the uv editor
             print("vertex %d at with UV coo (%d , %d) at  (%d ,%d)"%(v.index, uv[0], uv[1], uv[0]*x, uv[1]*y) )  
             print( "is selected ? " , ob.data.uv_layers.active.data[v.index].select )

        print (cursor,x,y)
  • $\begingroup$ hi.. uv = ob.data.uv_layers.active.data[v.index].uv don't work.. even in this case the v in ob.data.loops is the same as each vertex in UV area yes??? $\endgroup$ – yhoyo Apr 3 '15 at 23:15
  • $\begingroup$ @yhoyo what error you are getting exactly ? $\endgroup$ – Chebhou Apr 3 '15 at 23:35
  • $\begingroup$ this one: prntscr.com/6p93yx $\endgroup$ – yhoyo Apr 3 '15 at 23:50
  • $\begingroup$ @yhoyo it seems that it doesn't work in edit mode , i'll look for something else $\endgroup$ – Chebhou Apr 4 '15 at 0:49
  • $\begingroup$ I understand.. but this is confusing because this data in objecto_mode is practically pointless and switch between modes is not very efficient.. also.. "UV vertex" is only avalaible in edit_mode... some another ideas please? $\endgroup$ – yhoyo Apr 4 '15 at 1:00
