I'm trying to manipulate single lights in a light string by a python script (see Animating running lights for more background info).
The string is created by using either an array+curve modifier or by using DupliFrames. Now I want to change some object attributes of the duplicates, ideally without applying the duplication, as I like to modify the curve afterwards.
Is there a way to access the duplicated object instances in python? Or is there a better way to have both, control over the path and a way to modify the resulting duplicates?
