BCS for Maya 7, ACS Update, Deformation Test

posted by danielpk on 01-17-2006 23:09

BCS for Maya 7
The bcs package now contains a plugin version for Maya 7 (windows). Many thanks to Zach Gray for compiling and submitting this version. Also in this version 1.0.7, there are some minor changes to the UI. See the version history in the download description for more details.

ACS Update
Just found a really ugly little bug in the ACS v1.03 that made it useless for most setups when the acs node isn't called "ACSnode1". Removing just one line of code solved it, so please download the latest version v1.04 if you're still using v1.03.

Deformation Test
Here are two little deformation tests showing a bit of my current mouth setup using the bcs. The participating AUs are 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 23, and 27. These test animations don't demonstrate the full flexibility of the setup as I didn't put too much time into them.


Click (or right-click -> Save Target As...) the images to see the tests.

AnimUI, ACS and other updates

posted by danielpk on 12-10-2005 17:29

Version 2.1 of the AnimUI adds the possibility to import and export sections into the library. This may be useful for setting up multiple characters with similar attributes.

The ACS got a few updates and is now version 1.03. Please see its description for the version history.

Also, the ACS Copy and Reorder Attrs scripts have been updated. The latter now works on nodes that have an animUI setup.

BCS v1.0.6

Hi there, I took another look at the memory management of the BCS and decided it was time for an enhancement. The result is that dataPoints now need about 17 times less RAM.

This should be more apparent with setups of several hundred dataPoints. I could reduce the memory usage of 700 dataPoints (in my example scene with about 1800 vertices) from 250 MB to 14 MB!

P.S. Sorry for the download problem of the Rotate Deltas script, it's now fixed.

AnimUI v2.0.2

A very valuable user feedback proposed adding the ability to open the animUI in a panel. Well... so here it is for anyone interested.

Version 2.0.2 of the DPK_animUI can be opened in a panel. This will look e.g. like this:


AnimUI v2.0

The animation interface has finally got its complete rewrite! It's now called DPK_animUI. This version is faster (performance and workflow), more robust, and should work hand in hand with the bcs.

The UI itself didn't change that much, so that users of the old script should quickly get comfortable with the new version. Also, the package now contains complete documentation (with manual, quick start, and command reference).
