pixelMove( float float )

Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.

pixelMove is undoable, NOT queryable, and NOT editable.

The pixelMove command moves objects by what appears as pixel units based on the current view. It takes two integer arguments which specify the direction in screen space an object should appear to move. The vector between the center pixel of the view and the specified offset is mapped to some world space vector which defines the relative amount to move the selected objects. The mapping is dependent upon the view.

Return value


Python examples

import maya.cmds as cmds

# move selected objects to the right (in current view) by one "pixel"
cmds.pixelMove( 1, 0 )

# move selected objects up by one "pixel"
cmds.pixelMove( 0, 1 )
