I was just trying to hide the line between the camera and the aim.Even hidding every thing in the scene,that anoying line is still visible.Where is the parameter to hide it?

In the camera_group attributes, under "Constraint Properties" you can uncheck "Display Connector".

Hi There,
Here's a basic script to enable/disable your displayConnector attribute. Select your camera node(s), and run the script.

**If you don't select a camera node in your scene the script will check for all the camera nodes in scene.**

global proc nnHideAimLine( int $mode )
string $cameraNodes[] = `ls -sl -dag -l -typ "camera"`;

if( !size( $cameraNodes ) )
$cameraNodes = `ls -dag -l -typ "camera"`;

for( $cameraNode in $cameraNodes )
string $parentNode = firstParentOf( $cameraNode );
$parentNode = firstParentOf( $parentNode );

if( size( $parentNode ) )
if( "lookAt" == `nodeType $parentNode` )
setAttr( $parentNode + ".displayConnector" ) $mode;

// Hide Selected/All
nnHideAimLine( false );

// Show Selected/All
nnHideAimLine( true );

Hope this helps,
Norbert Nacu
