Ninja Theory

This past months at Ninja have been amazing. I'm very lucky to be here and to have met so many talented artists.

Ninja has now made public their work on Hellblade and Disney infinity 2.0. 

Personally I see this as the just the begining of plenty much more exciting things to come :)

Playback tweak

Every once in a while I see myself editing an exsisting animation and while working on it I like to preview / playback only what I'm working on.

Although you can do this via playblast by selecting the range in the timeline, I couldn't find a way to do it within the viewport itself.

This small script can replace the built-in maya playblack module. It will work exactly the same way it already does but adding the function of playbacking a selected number of frames, changing the range and setting it back how it was when you stop the playback.

To replace the maya preset, go to settings / preferences / hotkey editor and create a new hotkey either python or mel, depending on what you have, then assing a key  (maya default is Alt + v) and enjoy! :)

You can just copy paste the text depending on which language your maya accepts, if you want to have as a script just right click and save as...
