View Full Version : setting scripted ui controller via script?

04 April 2008, 08:59 PM
ok in morph based facial rigging we set up shapes to control the morphs , i saw in many reels that they make this controls apear in a separate floating ui rather than being in the view port which is much less occluding and feasible during work , i wiped the help but ddidnt get wahat i needed so how to do this?
N.B:to get the point you can watch "victor vinyals" reel business man rigging done in maya and see the floating ui

i am eager to know

You can do everything in the reel through a Rollout and Dialog except for the 2d pos markers. Only 1D Sliders are possible using MXS objects--which is annoying and stupid.

This is why most Max Facial rigs interfaces I've seen use scripted shapes in a viewport.

You would have to script your own custom sliders. Check out this thread.
