Do you ever find Maya is pasting a bunch of old nodes from a file you were working on a while back when you hit ‘CTRL+V’ over the UI? Seems to happen to me often enough so today I tracked down how to fix it, you can use the following MEL script to find the file it’s pasting from and delete it which will prevent it happening.. ahh that’s better..
string $tmpFile = "/maya_sceneClipBoard" ;
string $tmpdir = `getenv TMPDIR`;
string $filePath = ($tmpdir + $tmpFile);
A quick overview of my new path animation tool for Maya.
Quick walk test with the new Chester rig from iAnimate.net. Very fun character, great rig too as always from Victor Vinyals.
A creature test I animated using a cool rig from Kiel Figgins. Had a lot of fun working on this, I even did sound effects/music for it to help set the mood.
Writing a new animation tool! Wouldn’t it be handy sometimes if you could visualize animation on any control on a character as a sphere and hide everything else in one click? And then just one other click to go back to the rig..
Animated this quick test today to test out 3 things : animating in Maya 2018 for the first time, this super appealing rig from Artella and the really fun workflow demonstrated by Rick Arroyo here : vimeo.com/239351534
I found this was a really intuitive way to figure out the basic timing, who doesn’t enjoy making sound effects? 🙂
