This is my first tool, made it with Python. It's available for free at Creative Crash (which is now HighEnd3D it seems ? that's new) and would like to ask for some feedback on it
What you have to do:
Group all joints (with 'joints' in the name of the group) and all ctrls in another (with "ctrls" in the name).
[eg. "gp_myChar_joints" and "gp_myChar_ctrls"]
Select the two groups and choose what you want to do.
What it does for you:
# Orienting controllers to joints:
If you want a controller to orient the same way as a joint just make sure their
core name (without sufixes and prefixes) is exactly the same.
[eg. "ctrl_IndexF1_L" and "jnt_IndexF1_L" will orient the controller, "jnt_indexf1_L" won't.]
Remember that now if you want to parent the controller you need to parent it's group,
not the controller itself.
The script will look for objects with the right and left suffixes (changeable in settings) and
check if there's already a mirrored part, if there is not then it creates it and names it accordingly.
Automatic coloring for the controls depending on which side are they on (right, left or none).
