Hey guys, I was wondering if there were any scriptwriters that had some free time to write a simple add-on for me. If you are interested please do read on
The type of add-on I would like to have is a simple menu that you can press Shift+A to add some pre-made objects into a scene.
The thing about these objects though, is it has shapekeys. I would like it so that the shapekeys are somehow imported with it. I don’t know if this is possible or how hard it is since I’m not experienced in scripting at all.
The objects I want added are my Studio Backdrops which very much rely on shapekeys. A lot of people found it useful and convenient, but I think it could be better if there was a quicker way to add it. The only way right now is to click Append, then find the file, then go into the file and find the Group with the studios then append it. That’s a pretty long process that could be WAAYY shorter if it were a simple menu.
Heres a quick mock-up I made to kinda show you what I’m thinking of:
Hopefully someone has some free time to make this an add-on because it will make my backdrops that much more useful and efficient! Thanks in advance for any help (and if this does get made you’ll get full credit for your work of course!) and I hope this wasn’t to demanding or anything, it’s ok if you guys dont have time
If you are interested please let me know, that would be great!
I mean, sure you can always model each backdrop and then setup the shapekeys each time you want to use it if you want but that would be inefficient.
Appending or modelling a pipe joint isn’t that hard but it’s a great add-on because its faster to add it from a menu, its a consistent model each time you add it, and there is a variety of pipe joints you can quickly choose from. That’s kind of what I’m going for with this add-on for the backdrops.
I know you can model your own studio backdrops and it’s easy but that would be a waste of time if you could have just clicked to buttons and you have all setup already, and it’s still easily customizable with shapekeys.
Thanks for your input on the subject, I know that you disagree with me but please don’t reply to this with anything hateful or harsh, if you don’t think this would be cool, you can ignore it. I don’t mean to sound mean or anything, hopefully I don’t.
here’s a new studio backdrops, more efficient, with the possibility of displacement
and rotation of the studio, but the scaling does not work, I do not know why,
you can also align the studio to the current view.
The shape keys are an elegant solution, but it’s terribly difficult to do.
the lights are just the basics of Blender
