NLA Tools is an addon I created mainly for baking animations. It is supposed to bake IK FK custom properties (Rigify uses custom properties to drive the switching between IK and FK). It also has a “restrict bake” feature which limits the new baked keyframes to the existing ones from the NLA stack. I considered sharing this tool as I think it could be quite handy for some animators.
However, it is still highly experimental so be careful when using it in production.
Note : This addon can be obtained for free, just type 0 in the price field
Cannot post video demo here yet as I’m new, see the video at this link instead
It is supposed to adress the issue described here by RiggingDojo from 4:00 to 5:00 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vH01CUIVx68
It highlights the fact that the default Blender bake doesn’t bake custom properties as pointed out in the report : https://developer.blender.org/T65773
