Hello. I want to share my script that I use in my animation projects.This is a simple tool for add some overlaps to your animation. Animation will bake to override layers, so your animation not will be deleted
Based on:
  • nParticle based
  • animation baking to layers for every selected object
  • work with cycles in 60 fps baking
How to use:
  • For install just open script in script editor and press button "Save Script to Shelf"
  • Selected objects must have keyed channels ( Translation and Rotation )
  • RUN TRANSLATION BAKING: you need select 1 or more objects
  • RUN ROTATION BAKING: you need select 2 or more objects. Last selected object will be the target for the previous one
  • RESET ALL: clears all values in script window
  • DELETE: only for "OVERLAPPY" layer delete and everything inside it. Dont forget rename and pull out layers with the animation that you need
  • MOVE: Move all keyed layers from "OVERLAPPY" layer to "SAVED_Overlaps"
  • Looping animation:
    • For baking clear loops you need use 60 fps. On another fps script will bake incorrect loops
    • Strong recomended to use animation minimum with 1 phase before and after animation cycle. Simple way to do it just use pre and post infinity with "Cycle" option
    • Or you can bake animation with off cycle checkbox into 3 or more loops, then move animation to your main animation range and delete remains
  • Aim reverse: reorientation aim for rotation script. May be useful when rotation sim bake animation with incorrect rotations

Known problems:
  • In Maya 2019 animation caching can break creating constraints by script
  • After simulation script leaves attribute "blendParent1" on object
p.s. This is my first script on maya python, so please report bugs and leave some comments, if you have ideas to modify the code
