PYTHON - How to create and set AOV attributes (data, driver and filter)

I've got a little script that I want to use to setup a deep AOV, what I want to do is change the driver to be deepexr rather than just exr:

I can't find out how to set the driver or filter for the AOVs. When adding an AOV I can change the data type by using aovType but I can't find out how to change the driver or filter.

mtoa.aovs.AOVInterface().addAOV('deep', aovType='float'


Anyone got any ideas?


Cheers!

You can set the ai_translator attribute on the driver

createNode aiAOVDriver -n "aiAOVDriver1";
    rename -uid "DCE06C62-427A-1D99-2156-979D9D057E50";
    setAttr ".ai_translator" -type "string" "deepexr";
