Quick access tool box

Post by momo » 29 Feb 2016, 06:36

Hello,

I have been trying to optimize my workflow by minizing the numbers of clicks I need to get what I need. In Maya if you press space there is menu that appears wherever the mouse is, this provides quicker access to tool. It is the same principle as the wacom's radial menu, except. Custom Panels are great but this are always far away from the work area. This would make coloring for exemple much faster.

This kind of feature won't be possible in current engine, but that is something very interesting ! Thank you for sharing this idea.

But you can script dropdown menus that will pop just where your cursor is. You just have to convert your buttons in george, not the easiest thing to do I agree. And you can't script all the shortcuts

As I'm highly interested in animation workflows, I'm open to scripting new TVP functions for individuals and studios. Please don't hesitate to contact me!
