Stapler

Working with a model created from separated pieces (mostly recycled from other models) speeds up the process but can be hard to skin in order to join all the pieces together. The vertexs on the seams must have exactly the same skin weight on every different piece so that parts are not separated when moving the bones.

If pieces don't have skin modifier, skin wrap modifier can do the job, but with skin modifier already applied to the pieces, skin wrap would destroy it.

This tool does the work on the seams while keeping the skin modifier on each of the parts.

Zoom Camera

Another easy but useful script. Just a few lines of maxscript to create a new camera from an existing camera on scene. The new ZoomCamera has the same animation and properties than the original so the animator can zoom or move it for facial animation or fine tunning.

Animatic Layout

I created this tool to speed up the process of creating animatics. You can create cameras with predefined shots for the different characters on stage. Also change the type of plane for an existing camera, and switch between cameras.
