i have took part in this with few character rigs
latest TVCs commercial i have participated in lately with caustik (lebanon) http://www.caustik.tv
this a tool that i started writing during multi-projects situations where everything tends to overlap .
multiple versions and updates for the same file , name conflicts , wrong saving destinations…etc and many troubles that are faced during such kind of situations so i wrote this tool that does the following:
-you need only to specify the project root location on the network once before you deliver the tool to artist, once done it will remember until you change the path
-it automatically detects the project structure and max file and if more than one it reckons the latest one
-you can set up thumbnail for your file
-you can create your own structure of projects
-easily and cleanly build up animation scenes with no conflicts
-artist can save their files according their specialities at specified locations and redirect all maps to that location automatically
well , that s for now , hope you like it !
this is the very first product of my upcoming tool for rigging in max it is bipedal rig with many unusual features and flexibility
