Ever needed to ensure an item in Maya has keys on all or perhaps only certain channels either for the Timeline visible or range selected?
Well here is a short and sweet little script with the added bonus of being able to also remove every odd key on every item selected and or every channel selected for the timeline visible or range selected.

This script has really helped me with changing my workflow from a more key heavy approach to a quicker pose to pose workflow.

A handy hide and un-hide dynamic script for Maya..

Ever wanted to take the fiddly selection sets and isolate selection display options and merge them?

Quickly create/add/remove a button for toggling the display of any item to your hearts content.
All you need is 5 minutes.

Add the script as a python script in Maya, copy and paste the contents of the pastebin link below.
When you load the script for the first time it will create a node in the scene, you can copy this into other scenes so the selection sets are portable.

Step.1) Start by hitting setup bottom left.

Step.2) You will be granted with a new window where you can quickly add,select,remove to your hearts content, once your happy pop a name in the text field and hit save as (yellow button) then hit close.
If you ever need to edit a set/button its just hit the edit.

Step.3) Click the button that will of been made.
The toggle button bottom right turns off or on the isolate display state.

Joints info in Mayas UI Hud..

Why this isnt available as standard I dont know but here is a cheap hack

Ive made a simple python scrip to display the number of joints currently visible in the scene and also the number of total joints in the scene as well as the number of child joints of the selected joints.
the script also toggles on or off (run twice to turn the display off..) Enjoy!
