A tool that can track your arcs while animating. Particularly helpful for character animators.

Is very fast and interactive.

It creates a sphere which is parent constrained to an object of your choice. The sphere is ghosted and coloured. 

INSTALLATION:
load the script into the Scipt Editor.
select all the code in the script and drag it to your Custom Shelf using your middle or left mouse button. 
Choose MEL if asked.
Right click the new icon and choose edit
choose the shelf tab
change Tooltip to:    Arc Tracker
change Icon Label to:    ArcTracker
click Save All Shelves

USAGE:
Click the new button on the custom shelf
Choose the object to track and then click the create button.
For speed, click the randomize button to change the size and color of the next created tracker.

NOTE:

TIPS:
Works best on animation control handles and joints.
Sometimes the ghosting does weird things by displacing the ghosted image. This is a maya bug and the best way around it is to choose a different object to track.
