View Full Version : Selecting multiple object animation betwreen certain keyframes...

02 February 2008, 08:09 PM
Looking for a way to select all animation on joints and my control handles which have keyable attributes between a specified time range. My mel sucks, so excuse me if I ask to keep it simple. I was trying to use the selectKey -time range string but it doesnt seem to select the added attribites in the channel box. Any suggestions and help would be great.

Thanks, Jere

I'm not in front of maya at the moment, so this might not be 100%
Something like this anyway:

string $sel[] = `ls -sl`;

for ($obj in $sel){

selectKey -addTo -attribute "translate" -attribute "rotate" -time "1:100";


Try that out, if it's not right, check the help for the selectKey command. If you can't sort it out give me a shout and I'll check it in maya tomorrow.

you can slick that down with:

for ($obj in ` ls -sl`)
selectKey -addTo -an "objects" -t (` playbackOptions -q -min` + ":" + ` playbackOptions -q -max`);
