DQ skinning Copier

1 vote

In previous max versions like max 2016,
when you save the envelopes, it doesn't save the Dual quaternions weights.
Which is a pain when you need to transfer skinning from a model to another for whatever reasons.
The thing is I do quite a lot of rigging and I faced this problem more than once with no out of the box solution.
And I needed to transfer only the DQ weights, not the other envelopes.

So here is a super simple script to do that.

How it works :
1 : select the model which has the DQ weights set. (the skin has to be the first modifier)

Vertices to Splines

Generate splines from the normals of mesh vertices.

This script is useful to create quick hair/fur splines or special effects.
It’s an incredibly powerful tool when used in conjunction with TurboSplines script to create things like tentacles, spikes, spines, appendices, etc.

You can set the number of splines, length, number of knots, variation and chaos.

A very simple but EXTREMLY USEFUL script you will use all the time!

With just one click it opens the Slate Material Editor and displays all the materials for the selected objects well organized in a clean view.

Forget about the annoying material picker tool. Add this simple button to your toolbar and every time you want to see the material/s for your current selected object/s just click the button and... Voila!

It will save you a lot of time!
