reversetime_ui

What to say... title and screenshot said everything.
Sample utility, an example of build-in Max function "reversetime".
Script affect only PRS (pos,rot,scale) transform keys.

Because I do not find some version in plain type for reverse time,
I wrote this script. I hope it come in handy for someone else.

Delete static keys - cleanup tracks/fcurves - HeckTools

3 votes

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.

Ani Baked (animation tool for creating keys on every-frame)

Similar to Cache Bar except this isn't using any cache files. This allows you to make key frames on your object at every frame. Great way to take procedural animation and make keys out of it. Works on your selection.

Automatically bake the animation to a point helper or to the Original Object. After baking down the animation you can clean up the keys.

Apply Increment

3 votes

Allows you to store a single object's initial position and rotation values, then store the new values after moving and/or rotating and apply the calculated difference between these values (as a relative offset) to any selected objects with existing keys. Offsets can be applied to either position or rotations controllers or both. The offsets applied can also be inverted.

Usage:

1. Select a single object and click Get Initial Values to record it's position and orientation values at that time.

Trackbar Mod Filter

6 votes

A small script that will install a trackbar filter which only shows the keys belonging to the currently selected modifier on the stack. So if you have 10 animated modifiers on your stack, you can now easily edit the keys for just one of them without opening the curve editor.

Run the script to create the filter (put script in /scripts/startup/ folder to make it stick)

To activate: rightclick on trackbar -> filter -> modFilter.

Enjoy!
