Hi All

This is intended to help cleanup your track view/graph editor for animating.

script removes all static keyframes excluding the initial key. essentially this acts similarly to the Maya feature "delete all static channels".

Also, it goes through and cleans up the tracks that have extra static keys that are in between your other animation keys leaving the animation in tact, but yielding a cleaner view of the chaos spaghetti.

leave feedback if you try the tool.

*05.07.2019* update - included the missing parentheses "(" and ")"

FOR ALL OF YOU WHO GOT THE ERROR - READ THIS COMMENT

The script is missing parenthesis under the macroscript construct.

To fix this you need to add a ( under the line

buttonText:"StaticKeyCleanup"

and you need to add a ) at the end (bottom) of the whole script.
