The BCS is Back

posted by danielpk on 10-20-2006 17:38

Finally, the new license has been approved and the BCS is back online for download. The download is free for private non-commercial use, for a commercial license, please contact me at: daniel@dpk.stargrav.com

P.S. I've decided to remove the "All in One" download as it's not practical to have such a package anymore.

BCS Temporarily Down

posted by danielpk on 08-01-2006 20:48

I've temporarily removed the BCS download in order to decide about its future and also to gain more control over its distribution.

Recently, it has been used in more and more commercial productions, including feature films, and even though being proud and happy about this popularity, I've decided that in such circumstances, I should probably change the license a bit.

Of course, the non-commercial use will remain free. But I think that companies making money using my tools should pay a little bit for it. This will also help in keeping this site alive and allows me to work further on this project.

I reckon the download will be back within the next few weeks. If you'd like to try it out sooner, just drop me a mail and I'll send you a copy.



BCS 1.0.8 for LINUX!

posted by danielpk on 04-30-2006 21:24

Thanks to the kind help of Tieum, Phid and the people at Mac Guff for providing compiled plugin versions for Linux and Windows (Maya 6 and 7). The Linux versions are tested on Suse 9 but should also work on Redhat. They also worked through the UI mel scripts and made sure they display correctly on Linux. This has been done for Rotate Deltas and Paint Deform too.

Btw, the BCS got an update to 1.0.8. This solves the NURBS mirrorGeo bug and corrects a really hard to find problem with interference between the bcs plugin and other deformers like clusters, etc.. Prior to this, having the bcs loaded was enough to slow down deformer heavy scenes considerably.

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.
