Rivet (continues)


I finally did what I thought would be the final thing to do: I edited the pointOnMeshInfo.mll and included the calculation of tangentU. Although it uses 2 nodes, it doesn't works faster than Bazhutkin's version, I don't know why. So it is your choice.

Here you can downlaod the plug-in and mel scripts:

rivet_for_Maya7.0.zip


To make it faster, I have some ideas. The first thing could be done is to eliminate the need of an aimConstraint node by directly calculating the rotational values within the node itself. The second one could be calculating all the rivets' positions and rotations at once within a single node.

I thing I will give a break to this rivet problem, I'll work on this when we need this on our animation studio...

The consequences of today are determined by the actions of the past scarlet blade gold. To change your future, alter your decisions today scarlet blade gold, Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards scarlet blade gold, but it takes character to keep you there.

The bravery of each bull is then rated with care according to the number of times he demonstrates his willingness to charge in spite of the sting of the blade Runescape gp, Henceforth will I recognize that each day I am tested by life in like manner. If I persist, if I continue to try, if I continue to charge forward, I will succeed rs gp, Your future depends on your dreams Runescape2 Gold. So go to sleep. Do not keep anything for a special occasion..
