Hi donvlatko

Perhaps this scripts will suite your needs:

global proc copyInputConnections()
string $sel[] = `ls -sl`;
if(size($sel) != 2) error "Select object that has the input connections, shift-select object that should get the same connections";

string $source = $sel[0];
string $destination = $sel[1];
string $inputs[] = `listConnections -d off -s on -p true -c true $sel[0]`;

/*Inputs[] looks like this
[0]: node.attribute 1 that is connected
[1]: node.attribute that is source of node.attribute 1
[2]: node.attribute 2 that is connected
[3]: node.attribute that is source of node.attribute 2

for($i = 0 ; $i<size($inputs) ; $i+= 2)
string $sourceAttr = $inputs[$i+1];

string $buffer[];
tokenize($inputs[$i] , "." , $buffer);
string $destinationAttr = ($destination+"."+$buffer[size($buffer)-1]);
connectAttr -f $sourceAttr $destinationAttr;
print ("Copied incoming connections from "+$source+" to "+$destination+"\n");

It will copy all incoming connections from one object to another. So if you have setup a relationship with SDKs between two nodes called node1 and node2 and you want the same relationship between node1 and node3, select node2 and node3 and run the script.

It won't duplicate the SDK setup, it will use the same setup but the will work just as good depending on what you need and it's easier to accomplish.

You don't happend to be working with a guy called Dejan, do you?
