I would like to script keyframes for bevel modifier width (and many more later). Here is what I have so far. I've commented out the last line which doesn't work. When I type
help(ao.keyframe_insert), I get
:arg data_path: path to the property to key, analogous to the fcurve's data path. but that doesn't help me since I haven't use fcurves yet.
The first half of my question is "how to key the bevel width as I am trying in the example script?"
...and the second half is "where could I have looked this up?" or "how can I know in general what do write in
keyframe_insert(data_path="" without asking a new question each time I want to key something?"
Thanks for your understanding!
