Deleting Editable Motion Trails


I have been trying out the Editable motion trail on maya 2014, and while an interesting tool, it is starting to eat through my ram. However I can’t figure out how to delete or remove them. I can’t find them in my outliner and I can’t simply delete them by right clicking.


I have this MEL script on a shelf I use while animating to quickly remove all motion trails in the scene.

string $handls[]= `ls -type motionTrail`;
for ($each in $handls)
select -r ($each+"Handle");



You might want to double check the outliner… there should be a motionTrailHandle node in the outliner when you create a motion trail.
