View Full Version : selection wildcards w/ referenced files

07 July 2006, 11:28 PM
Hey all,

Im having some trouble here. The pipeline Im trying to setup will be a lowres puppet that has a high res (with complete skeleton) referenced into the scene. Im writing a script to constraing all the joints (orientationally) from the high res to the low res. The only problem is I cant seem to use :

`select "*_HRBSL" `;

because maya wont use the wildcard with the referenced nodes. (every joint on the high res skeleton is suffixed with _HRBSL) Anyone know of a way that I can select referenced nodes with wildcards?

If you've referenced with a namespace you might have to specify the namespace before the wildcard i.e.

`select "namespacename:*_HRBSL" `
