cgJedi Animation Suite
Tools specifically designed to make animating tasks within Maya more intuitive and to provide access to traditional animation concepts.
Please help me out by filling out a quick survey. Thanks.
I'm planning a major update. Does anyone have any features they'd like to see or other requests?
Graph Editor ReduxGraph Editor Redux is a redesign of Maya's curve editor toolset. Not only does it reorganize the classic graph editor functions, it provides new tools that many animators have found extremely helpful in massaging animation performances.
See included PDF documentation for installation and description of features. Installation starting with Maya2012 is now different than for previous versions. It now installs (easily) via Maya's module feature. See the PDF for exact instructions.
Note: To switch between Suite, Classic and Redux go to the "View/Toolbar Mode" menu of the Graph Editor toolbar.
Plugin versions for Maya 2012_x64. 2013_x64, 2014_x64, 2016.5, 2017 included
DPT - Digital Pose Test
Digital Pose Test (or DPT ) is a tool that helps with timing/blocking animation. It is patterned after the traditional Exposure Sheet (X-Sheet). Images of keyed poses are captured, manipulated within DPT and then the new timing can be sent back to the scene which updates the original keyframe timing.
Unfortunately the Maya2017 release has not included the QtMultimedia library that DPT depends on. This will be addressed in a future update.
implementation of CSS style sheets. A "dark" and a "light" style are available with
each having various colour options. Although Graph Editor Redux provides
access to MayaStylin, the script can be accessed outside of this tool and
modified (drive your Pipeline TD crazy :) )
Timing Chart Still in beta. Unfortunately, not enough interest in this tool which is patterned after traditional animation principles. 3D trained animators say they are happy with the Graph Editor.
