Maya LT Working Scritps

Since there's no dedicated LT forum I'll decided to post here.

Not looking at initial wave of critique (I still think AD needs to boost it up in order to match basic standards) I decided to try and get the most out of it before trial expires.
LT fits my budget. That's my bottom line.

So not to blah blah anymore I thought I will start a thread so we can combine all working scripts in LT for those that are interested.

*instructions how to run scripts in LT are in the end of this post.

At this point I got these to work like a champ. Hopefully others will chime in.



Duplicate along path:

Advanced Mirror Tool:

*if you know a better way to do this please let me know and I'll update this post.
*Running scripts in LT (Big thanx to MM from polycount as he's the one that came up with this)

1. start MayaLT

2. create a new shelf

3. close LT

4. copy this:

        -enableCommandRepeat 1
        -enable 1
        -width 35
        -height 35
        -manage 1
        -visible 1
        -preventOverride 0
        -annotation "yourAnnotation" 
        -enableBackground 0
        -align "center" 
        -label "yourLabel" 
        -labelOffset 0
        -font "plainLabelFont" 
        -overlayLabelColor 0.8 0.8 0.8 
        -overlayLabelBackColor 0 0 0 0.25 
        -image "your_icon.png" 
        -image1 "your_icon.png" 
        -style "iconOnly" 
        -marginWidth 1
        -marginHeight 1
        -command "your_script" 
        -sourceType "mel" 
        -commandRepeatable 1
        -flat 1

5. under -command replace your_script with the exact name of the script.
I tried using scripts located in the ./documents path but seems like LT does not see it so I copied the scripts to: ./MayaLT2014/scripts/startup and it works like a charm.
Replace -image and -image1 with the icon name you want to use. Icon images must be saved in: ./MayaLT2014/icons

6. Open shelf_YouCreated.mel (located in ./My Documents/2014LT/prefs/shelves (any text edit app will work)) paste the updated code into it and hit save.

7. Restart LT, go to your shelve and enjoy.
