View Full Version : New Plug-in 'RotateSkelegons'

06 June 2003, 09:56 PM
Hi everybody,

I just finished programming a little Modeler plug-in (Windows only) called RotateSkelegons. This tool allows to adjust quickly the bank handles of skelegons as well as preview rotational deformations (this includes the deformation of sub-patches).

This tool can also be useful for creating 'Smartskin' endomorphs (like Joel Dryer's method). I wrote a tutorial on this, thanks to Proton for the model !

Both the plug-in and the tutorial can be found on my newly created website ( .

Please feel free to comment and to report any bugs.

your plug is very useful, being able to "snap" at any angle ( precise with numeric panel) is very nice. The visual ref is also very good which is very important ( no more need to use this crappy blue handle...). Great tool. Its really crazy to see tools like ortho pack or this one as plugs....

Great Plugin, should soon be on my list of fave plugins :applause:

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that Newtek put functionality like this or better into LW 8.

A job well done, :buttrock:
