could be someone of Python coders be so kind and help me how to make a very simple GUI for rig and its animating?
The idea is very simple. As you can see on this example picture it is just needed to:
- select appropriate part of the GUI picture (I suppose to use mesh objects to represent the parts of the GUI picture).
- the script would make a step that if you select hand in the picture the appropriate hand bone of the armature in pose mode would be selected (and the mesh picture would be deselected
So in fact the code just “changes” the selection of the mesh into selection of the appropriate bone in pose mode and at the same time deselect the mesh.
Here is very simple blend file for this python code: http://rapidshare.com/files/152105835/RigGUI.blend
Unfortunately I cannot code in Python but I guess this is just a few lines of code. So I would be very grateful for any help. Just a simple python code example for one bone and mesh object I guess that the rest I my find out somehow.
Example picture as well as video how this works e.g. in Maya are attached hereunder
