Big progress for the week:
- Updated the documentation for attrTools
- Added buffer mode and controls to the snap marking menu
- Lots of work on attributes front. Got a good handle on pretty much all types except multi attributes which we’ll swing back and hit later
- Big addition this week was developing the attributes.doCopyAttr command. Maya’s own copyAttr command is a bit limited in a few ways:
- Doesn’t support attribute copying on shape attributes
- Doesn’t copy attribute settings (keyable, locked, etc)
- Doesn’t allow remapping (i.e. attributes must match between objects)
- By making our own, we’ve added some pretty cool functionality;
- If an attribute to copy to doesn’t exist on the target, it’ll make one
- Attribute mapping
- copying attribute state flags
- On the fly attribute conversion
- Maya’s copyAttr doesn’t support shapes annoyingly, so gotta make one. However, this has afforded more options
- Deleting certain attributes can crash maya, yay!
- Adding a softMin/Max to an attribute, makes it a slider in the attribute editor
- a = b not good for copying, a = copy.copy(b) copies without the connection (make sure to import copy first:)
- Ryan’s estimating the first bit of the new web push will be ready next week
- Getting back to the rigger, trying to get the base plan going on it.
