Works great

This works well with my subd modeling workflow. Saves a tremendous amount of tedious time. Thank you for putting this out.

Finally tried it..

..and am now using it in a slightly hacky way to emulate Turbosmooth's "smooth by smoothing group" for creasing in OpenSubDiv (with a Datachannel preset on top).

Thanks, I couldn't figure out how to do it in Datachannel alone!
