    Hello!! Awesome script!! I've been trying to use it to simulate earrings on a female character. The character is animated. I do a point on poly constraint, constraining the start control curve to a polygon selection on her ear. When she moves, the chains move is very different direction ( it appears they move to "world center of scene) and then keep simulating. Other times, during quick body movements, the chains break/detach completely.. Please fix this or tell me of a workaround. I really love this script.

    @Studioex Of course the script works only with Maya 2012. It should work also on Mac OS (never tested but Maya is the same!). I you wanna be sure you can download the demo version of Maya 2012 from Let me know if works properly. Thank you!!

    @Gianluigi Lasco Ciao Gianluigi, grazie per il commento. La procedura corretta per utilizzare lo script è quella descritta nel file "How to use.txt": - copia lo script nella cartella script di Maya (../documenti/maya/scripts) - seleziona una o più curve - all'interno dello script editor (scheda Python), scrivi ed esegui esclusivamente queste due righe (senza virgolette): "from chainCreator import * chainCreator()" Così facendo Maya va a cercare lo script nell'apposita cartella in cui lo hai copiato e lo esegue. Non puoi aprire il file con un editor di testo in quanto è compilato in binario. Spero di esserti stato utile.

    Ciao Valerio! prima di tutto grazie per aver condivso il tuo script. Dal video mi sembra con Maya 2012 non riesco a caricarlo...anzi la cosa strana è che aprendo il file in un editor si vedono solo simboli non codificati correttamente...gli stessi cha appaiono se importo lo script. Per caso è un problema noto che già conosci? Grazie mille!

    Hi Valerio, the script looks awesome. Does it work with MAC. I am running 2011 atm but may upgrade soon. Would like to test out the script.. Tried with maya 2011 but no joy. As you said you created it for 2012.

    @ohknats Make sure you are running the command in a python tab (not MEL) and there aren't any spaces/indentations before the two lines.
