Modifying PEN attribute Holder to work as a script (instead of a plugin)
Hi, I´m currently working on a custom built bone rig in my internship. I love the PEN attribute holder for storing poses, but my employer doesn´t want me to use any plugins, so I thought about modifying the original script to work as a simple maxscript, instead of a plugin. My scripting knowledge is still very basic, but I´ve managed to add the rollouts and menues by doing this:
plugin modifier 'PEN_Attribute_Holder 2' name:"PEN_Attribute_Holder 2" classID:#(0x9004a801, 0xa7617106) version:2
custAttributes.add $.modifiers ca
after the end of the original script.
So I add a standard attribute holder, run the modified script and I have all the rollouts and menus. I can even save presets, but now I´m stuck, because if I now add any custom attributes and try to use the ramp slider, I only get an error message like this:
-- Error occurred during fileIn in StringStream:"#("; line number: 1 -- Error occurred in rampCa_Sl.changed() -- Frame: -- val: 0.1165 -- vals: undefined >> MAXScript Rollout Handler Exception: -- Compile error: Unexpected end-of-script <<
With my basic knowledge it seems like the script isn´t reading the other custom attributes I add.
Any ideas how to tackle this problem?
