Go to next/previous frame/key

12 votes

is a collection of
four very simple scripts that allow you to set individual hotkeys to go
to the next and previous frames in your timeline and the next and
previous keyframes of your selected object. Basically I made
these because when it comes to navigating frames forward and
by hotkey, I prefer maya's way of doing it as opposed to max's toggle

3DSmax Spline to maya curve

3 votes

This is a little handy script I've written to convert 3DSmax's spline shapes to maya curves..

I was working on a project involving hair in 3dsmax and after finishing the styling phase my boss asked me if I can transfer the hairstyle to maya, but I couldn't find any tool to export curves from max to maya without destroying them, so here is it.

Usage: simply select your spline shape and change the output file path inside the script to your desired path for exporting a mel script that you can run later in maya to create your curves.
