Hello. Came across this plugin here and am having a bit of trouble getting it to work with my character rig. Mainly that when I try to add RefNodes it just hangs after I click the 'Add' button. Im guessing its because I have a ton of stuff in scene and the list population is taking a long time because when I try it in a smaller test scene it works marvelously. I was wondering if you had encountered this at all and if there was anyway around it? Anyway, I hope there is a solution because this script does exactly what I was hoping to find. Thanks.

Great modifier. Thank

Great modifier. Thank you!
One question though: The "update pose" option should save the current changes made to the selected pose, is this correct? Because it doesn't seem to work in my tests.

Sorry for the wait

I have been a little busy with another script and with my move that I haven't had time to work on this script as of yet. At some point I will work out the bugs and add some more features into this tool. Thanks for being patient.

This script is very excelent

This script is very excelent and useful.
However in my emvironment (ver1.1, max_2012_64bit_jp and 2013_64bit_jp), there are two problems shown below.

(1) After Launch, when select "update pose", not start anything at all.

(2) After Launch, when select "rename pose", I get a dialog of "update pose?" in spite of rename, and when click yes, I get an error massage of "No append function for undefined".
