Hi everyone,
I am trying to copy keys from imported rig and paste it to the reference rig. I have written following code:

```  import pymel.core as pm

# select the ctrls to copy keys
sel = pm.ls("*CTRL")

print(sel)

# get a list of references
refs = pm.listReferences()

reference_namespaces = []

# get list of namespaces from reference
for ref in refs:
    reference_namespaces.append(ref.namespace)

# get time slider range of the scene
min_timeRange = pm.playbackOptions(q=1, min=1)
max_timeRange = pm.playbackOptions(q=1, max=1)

time_value = "{}:{}".format(min_timeRange, max_timeRange)
float_value = "{}:{}".format(min_timeRange, max_timeRange)

for s in sel:
    pm.copyKey(s, time=":", hierarchy="none", controlPoints=0, shape=1)
    for reference_namespace in reference_namespaces:
        if pm.objExists(reference_namespace + ":" + s):
            referenced_ctrl = reference_namespace + ":" + s
            pm.pasteKey(referenced_ctrl, option="replaceCompletely", float=(min_timeRange, max_timeRange),
                        time=(min_timeRange, max_timeRange), copies=1, connect=0)```

It is showing me following error:
# Traceback (most recent call last):
#   File "<maya console>", line 1, in <module>
#   File "D:/Downloads/Scripts/Scripts/utkarsh/daily_scripts/transferKeys.py", line 29, in <module>
#     pm.pasteKey(referenced_ctrl, option="replaceCompletely", time=(min_timeRange, max_timeRange))
#   File "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2020\Python\lib\site-packages\pymel\core\animation.py", line 754, in pasteKey
#     res = cmds.pasteKey(*args, **kwargs)
#   File "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2020\Python\lib\site-packages\pymel\internal\pmcmds.py", line 130, in pasteKey_wrapped
#     res = new_cmd(*new_args, **new_kwargs)
# RuntimeError: time ranges not valid with given option # 

pastekey command seems to be the main issue and I checked with command page. I understand what is wrong with the command.
Please help!!

You have created these identical formatted strings:

    time_value = "{}:{}".format(min_timeRange, max_timeRange)
    float_value = "{}:{}".format(min_timeRange, max_timeRange)
 
But you never used them:

    pm.pasteKey(referenced_ctrl, option="replaceCompletely", float=(min_timeRange, max_timeRange),
                        time=(min_timeRange, max_timeRange), copies=1, connect=0)

Did you mean to pass time_value or float_value to the float/time parameters instead of the tuples?

Hi Justin,
Thanks for the reply.
Yes, float_value is not needed.

I was getting error when I was passing it as tuple or string.
 But the problem is solved now. I was using Pycharm and I had multiple windows open. For some reason, it was reading a scene from another window where there were no keys and it keep giving me errors.
After closing the other window, it worked as it is supposed to. 

Thanks once again :).
