jsReferenceRig Script probs

Hey everyone

If you don't have the Fast Animation Rig DVD from AW then ignore this one.

One of the scripts is jsReferenceRig and I can't get it to work. When it's setup, an error message comes back when trying to copy the animation from the high rez to the low rez rigs saying

"there was nothing to copy...one of your rigs isn't setup properly"

but i have no idea what is wrong.

Any suggestions?

tried that, and i get the following error when i try to locate the .rg file with jsReferenceRigUI

"// Error: Cannot find procedure "jsPerformRigReference". //"

Anyway i could send you my edited scripts so u could look at them? or you send me your edited ones?

As u can tell, i know jack about mel scripting

Copy ALL the scripts off the DVD into your scripts directory (but don't overwrite the 2 fixed ones!) restart Maya, and give it another try

still no good

I get "syntax error"

Hmm. It's probably the edit to the scripts you did then. Give it a closer look - I'm not at my computer and have another 12 hours till I get home, but if you still need help then...

Tried to go through the script, but i just can't make much sense of it.

Just mail me when u can take a look at it.

Sweet workflow too, huh? Thanks Jason, and Daniel for the fix.

Yeah very nice indeed.

Are you limited to having one reference in a scene at a time. Haven't tested it, but just curious.

Have another small problem...

The script works briliiantly...in a totally brand new scene file. However, when i try n use it an existing scene i have built (sets n buildings) it won't work.

More specifically, the jsReferenceRigUI scripts work fine, and i can reference in both the rigs, however, as soon as i type in jsRigUI and error message comes up saying

"Error: Cannot find the scene file."

any suggetsions? Obviously this error must be scene specific, because the scripts work fine in a new scene.

I've always used it in a new scene too. But try this: use your existing scene, set up the referencing, save out the scene, then close it and re-open it. Maybe...?

(haven't tried multiple refences yet either...)

nah...still the same problem....
