The Object is the common base class for all of Silhouette's primary data objects. All objects have a unique id, user-editable label, and contain Properties.

# print the list of property names for the first selected object
object = fx.selection()[0]
print object.properties.keys()


Attributes are read-only except where noted.

color the object Color - not all objects have a way of changing their color (read/write)

Name Description

clone() returns a deep clone of the object and children
getTransform(frame, collapsed=True) returns the accumulated transform at the specified time. This is a convenience method only useful for Layers and their children. If the object is a Layer and collapsed is set to False, this returns only the Layer's transform matrix.
