Automation automation....au-to-mation

I've been out of the rigging loop for a while but man there are some sweet new tools. Anzovin's The Setup Machine 2 is pretty damn sweet. But here's a niiiice reverse foot setup script that puts in all of your toe roll, heel roll etc etc automatically. Gotta dig it! The script is over at Creative Crash but here's a video showing it's slickness

1 Button stretchy IK

Man I'm a sucker for 1 button anything. Check out this script that once you've built your spline IK....select the IK handle, press the button via this script and yes - super stretchy IK. Lov it.

Lovin' VRAY for Maya's VRAY Blend material

Sometimes the most simple things tweak my brain. I remember the pain of having
to use mix8 nodes in Mental Ray. This mucho bettero.
1. slap down a vray blend MTL.
2. Throw a semi transparent shader in as your base.
3. add in another shader with a blend amount or use a texture to determine blend amounts.

That's it. Insta-layered shader. Awesome.
