Hey whats up guys!

I'd like to present to you a newer version of Easy Rotate with some new features, bug fixes and source code improvements. This is another simple & useful script i have wrote for 3d studio max. The main reason i created this script/tool was to simplify animations that needed continuous rotation quicker. so say stuffs like Fans, Rotor Blades, Turntable animations, Car wheels etc. I hope you enjoy using it!

Additional Info: 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Use the "Download link" to download Version 1.2

  If you like to run scripts through the Maxscript menu everytime you want to launch it, then just run the "Easy_Rotate_v1.2.ms" 

file and you are good to Go!. But if you like to ease the process and a create a menu item instead, just follow through 

the tutorial!

Installation steps:

1. Click on the MaxScript menu & choose "Run Script..."

2. Browse & choose the "Easy_Rotate_v1.2.mcr" file

Note: It will seem like nothing happened

3. Click on the "Customize" menu item and choose "Customize User Interface"

4. Go to the menu Tab and create a new menu called "Wickerfilms"

5. Scroll down through the bottom left panel named "Menus" and find "Wickerfilms"

6. Drag "Wickerfilms" to the main menu items on the right to a position of your choosing.

7. Go to the "Category" dropdownlist on the upper left and choose "Wickerfilms"

Note : You should now see "Easy Rotate", If successful.

8. Back to the menu item panel on the right, click on the "+" sign beside "Wickerfilms"

9. Drag "Easy Rotate" to the "Wickerfilms" Menu item on the right.

Now you should be able to run Easy Rotate right from the main menu!

@Tassel, For that matter why

@Tassel,

For that matter why not specify the Range you want using the Frame option?
Seems quite useful to me.

Stay Creative.

Hi, Nice idea. Maybe you

Hi,

Nice idea.

Maybe you should add an option with out-of-range type to avoid seting a key at all keyframes?

Just a sugestion :)
