Python Scripts

I create Python tools for Animation, Simulation, Character Setup and Pipeline.
While most scripts are produced for clients, studios or personal use, I also create tools to share with the CG community.

Universal IK FK Switch Tool

Maya Character Script that maches Poses between IK and FK Rigg mode and works for any Character. Riggs that don’t have IK/FK match built in, requires only Standard FK controls and IK Pole Vector Setup. The Controls are defined once and can be stored in Node for easy reuse throughout the animation.

Missing Shelf Button Cleanup

One reason for disappearing shelf buttons its entry exists multiple times in userPrefs.mel
what confuses the loading. There might be a shelf entry with ; at the end and one without. Both valid
but overwriting each other.

This script runs through the .mel file and tries to remove any line with duplicates.
Besides “shelfName” entries that are filtered are associated “shelfVersion”, “shelfFile”, “shelfLoad and “shelfAlign” entries
