Creates and adds an ActionSource to the model's collection of sources.

Scripting Syntax

oReturn = Model.AddActionSource( [Name], [TargetArray], [SourceArray], [ActiveArray] );

Return Value



Parameter Type Description
Name String Name of the new action source
TargetArray Array Array of source item target paths.
SourceArray Array Array of source item sources. For now only FCurve, StaticSource or Double values representing static values are valid sources.
ActiveArray Array Array of source item active flags.
