Just saw this is awesome tool for modeling QuickInset
(but didn't want to derail that thread with something sort of off topic)
I was wondering if the pre-selection part of this would be possible in Softimage as a property one could assign to an animation control (object or cluster).
Pre-selection highlighting as been used in modeling for a long time, but it has been slow to move over to rigs/animation. This would make rigs much cleaner and easier to interact with - no more wires. It makes selecting fingers and other small controls a breeze.DAZ Studio 4
implements this quite well using some sort of cluster derived from skinning. (the full body IK is a bit klunky, but I'm just interested in the selection part of the vid). Skip to 1:35, where he starts posing.
I don't have the skill to code something like this (If i did I'd have already posted here...), but maybe someone else can be inspired - or has anyone seen a plug in that can do something like this?
Edit: I guess this could be in the rigging section...Moderator edit: and so it is!!! Magic? - HB
