I have a bone, which i need to rotate. It has to be done on a server all the time, which means, that it would be nice to avoid clicking on the bone.

I understand that i need to use:


allthough i might be wrong.

After the bone is rotated, I need to Keyframe the rotation, how would i go about this?


I assume you are rotating the bone in pose mode, for this you can use the following lines:

import math
import bpy

ob = bpy.data.objects['Armature']
bpy.context.scene.objects.active = ob

pbone = ob.pose.bones[bname]
# Set rotation mode to Euler XYZ, easier to understand
# than default quaternions
pbone.rotation_mode = 'XYZ'
# select axis in ['X','Y','Z']  <--bone local
axis = 'Z'
angle = 120
pbone.rotation_euler.rotate_axis(axis, math.radians(angle))
#insert a keyframe
pbone.keyframe_insert(data_path="rotation_euler" ,frame=1)

the code from this wiki page , it contains useful scripts for batch job
