[Maya] How to do the dropdown automatic command?


#1

Hi,

Sorry if I don’t know the exact name of this but I just opened the free rig from animation mentor and it has this drop down attribute in IK to FK and FK to IK that executes automatically.
Please see illustration here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g3fo88mnjhg1fji/MYA067_ikFKSnap_dropDown.mp4?dl=0

Is there a reference out there that can do this?

Thank you.

Here’s the basic steps:

  1. Add an enum attribute with two values
  2. Hook the attributes to an attributeChanged scriptJob

Thanks Theodox for pointing the reference.
Have a good day ahead!

For this specific example you could also use a blocking clock hooked up to the enum attribute, it’s really handy for “save -> reset” relationships too
