maya tools

Finally getting a start on cleaning house for 2011/2012. I’ve boiled down my essential icons/scripts and will continue to update this post with shelf specific mels.

None of these are written by me…they’re all scripts I use on a daily basis from the kindness of other animators/tds out there who like to make our lives easier.

Until I package these up with 2009 and 2011 versions, here’s a link to the script directory with icons:?Many of these shelf icons are already mel commands, but because I do a bit of personal work on my tablet pc, I like having them at the ready.

A quick description of the ones I can’t live without.

copyTransf – A programmer friend, Danny Burbol tweaked Jeremy Cantor’s script so it will copy world space transformations ?over time. A poor man’s space switch.http://coopdesign.org/blog/
EulerFilter – a stock maya command I also use as a hotkey.
frac – a rename of del_fractional.mel – kills keys on integers. Useful for retiming
ghost and unghost selected – I tend to like the same number of frame steps so I turned them into hotkeys
1/2 speed ?– this one I haven’t released, as it’s TJ Phan’s. A quick polishing tool that toggles playback rate from real time (as much as maya does real time) to half speed.
insert keys – another mel command – [setKeyframe -insert] ?- ?useful for making sure you have whole pose keys, a workflow I prefer. The handy thing about this v. set keys is that it doesn’t change the tangency of the graph editor curve.
keyPlus and Minus – there are a ton of these out there. It’s a quick way to retime your scene or insert blank space between keys. I map these to ctrl-minus and ctrl-plus, and for stepping by 3, shift-ctrl minus and plus.
tweenMachine – Justin Barrett’s wonderful script for adding breakdowns while in stepped mode. Also playing around lately with ackSteppedTween.
?onionSkin – a little buggy, but when it works, it’s great…creates a snapshot of your scene and makes it a ghosted image plane. Great for lining stuff up or analyzing spacing.
?tangent tools – shelves for changing both keying type, and what the tangents do. Great for doing rough tangent work in the graph editor, or popping between stepped and spline, my preferred workflow.
 

Hotkeys
9 – toggle xray
ctrl shift x – cut keys
alt j – toggle joints
alt-n toggle nurbs curve
ctrl shift s – insert keys
ctrl plus minus – add/remove keys

    I was just looking for this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.

    What you wrote made a lot of sense. However, what about
    this? what if you added a little information? I mean,
    I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but what
    if you added a title that makes people desire more?

    I mean maya tools is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s home
    page and note how they create article titles to
    get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a picture or two
    to get people interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it
    would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
