I used this tutorial and made a working marking menu based space switching setup.

Personally, I I don’t really like working with them. I’d rather have access to the options on the control itself rather than pressing a hot key and right mousing, but to each their own.

wow, tim that’s some impressive stuff. I’m still trying to work out how to go about automating parts of my rigging process. I haven’t really found a good simple resource for it. I really liked the terminator mechnaics, was that mainly done with aim constraints?

I sent you a pm.

Automated rigging is as simple as learning mel. Do it more than once, and I’ll script it.
