Delete static keys - cleanup tracks/fcurves - HeckTools

1 vote

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.

World-Space to Local Animation

0 votes

Bakes an objest's World-Space/Space Warp animation to a copy, using local Point Cache modifier. Then you can apply local modifers on top to continue animating the object's deformation locally.

Note: this is a preliminary version. It saves always a temporary .xml file for the Point Cache, wich you can rename, relocate and reload, to preserve it. In future versions, this could be set at the script’s UI by the user.

Compatible with 3dsMax 2012 and higher.

Biped and CAT Mass Markers

2 votes

A tool for visualising the projected lower and upper masses (pelvis and base of the neck respectively) in relation to the feet of a standard Biped or CAT rig. Markers between the feet show where the masses intersect, which may help with determining where the static weight is distributed when posing. It does not take into account motion dynamics and so is intended for use when standing still. Additionally, when a foot is raised above the ground the foot line markers turn blue. Likewise if lowered below the ground they turn red.
