Scripting tutorials

Below you will find examples of some of my scripting work. I use Mel, Python and Pymel for automating redundant tasks.

Follicle script:
A very very very useful tool for creating constraints that are supposed to stick objects to a mesh, but without wierd rotations and other nastiness.

Examples of work:
UI to setup Arnold render settings with presets. Also shaders can quickly be created.
This is good for saving time in production.
