Anyone have a script that creates dynamic Chains, makes them collide and bakes the animation?

cgToolkit does, and this a great script, but it's no working with Maya2010.

cgTkDynChain.mel


Thanks!

I don't own this volume of the cgtoolkit books but i found the script here.

I tried to run the script in maya 2010 but it kept crashing maya. It would have been much easier to debug if it didn't crash on me.. hopefully others can help.

Hey thanks efecto,
I do have the script, but cannot get it to work in M2010 :(
It's a fun one to use!

I have the cgToolkit vol. 1, and it ia a good resource for rigging.

Some workflows have changed so much now that I am using the new tools, but with old techniques (like trying to use this script)

perhaps one of the program typs can make a working version..?
or teach a new way to use the power of Maya!
