script error - "Not Specific enough"

I wrote a simple script to set all transforms to (0 0 0) for an object and all of its descendants.

I copied the traverse.cmd and modified it.

When I run it, I gen an error “not specific enough”.

The error is flagged on this line of code :

`run(“opparm $node t (0 0 0) r (0 0 0)”)`

“node” comes from -

.. set nodes = `run(“opglob *”)`
.. foreach node ( $nodes )
..


THIS line DOES work though :

set t = `run(“opparm -d $node t r”)`

The main difference seems to be when trying to *set* a parm vs *reading* it.

What's the syntax / technique to make this work ?,

I get the same error message when trying to pass the same commands to the ‘traverse.cmd’ script.

thx

try this

opcf /obj
foreach obj (`execute(“opglob @group1”)`)
opparm $obj t (0 0 0)
opcf ..
end

opparm $obj t (0 0 0)
opcf ..
end

Ok I got it to work.

Using opparm as a “bare” word seems to be the key.
(@group1 gave me an error .. no such group … and the “opcf ..” should
be outside the loop)

It's confusing and unclear in the docs as to when a command can be “bare”, or needs to be enclosed within an “execute”, or within backticks and an execute

thx

Sorry should have said replace group1 with your own group.
Sorry the opcf .. isn't required in this case, I was half thinking of a script that would go into each object and do something at sop level…. doh!
Should have checked it for you first, anyway you worked it out so that's good. :wink:
