Hi guys! this is Miguel here.

MGtools is a free mel toolPackage specialized in maya animation process.

This is the about image that I drew for it:

 The main features are listed below:

  • Dual UI&HelpDoc language (English,Simplified Chinese).
  • U can embed any user MEL, integrate them into a single bar and the popupMenu of MGtools' MGshelf icon as well.
  • Embed any external file/folder shortcuts.
  • A floating channelBox called MGchannelBox which is specialized for animation. There are eight marking menus embed in it for quick operation purpose.
  • MGselection set and some assistant feature to speed up your selecting process.
  • Constraint tools to speed up your constrainting process.
  • Viewport config switch and display layer set.
  • Snap.There are many many kind of snap in it. such as relative snap,POsnap,PointSnap,OrientSnap..etc. All these snap have snap at the frame,or snapping foreward/backward mode. This could be the most frequent feature u gona visit. It helps u get rid of all the popping that caused by attribute changing,and any slipping feet while the character is walking/runing.
  • Make one object's pivot animatable in animation process.
  • MG-animaton library: export/import animation,build up and maintain your animation library through the UI very easily.
  • MG-Timer: recording timing and present/convert the result in any frame rate.
  • MG-MA converter. Sometime maya wont let you change the file type,then use this.
  • Reference tool.
  • Custom MG-HUD display.
  • frameCounter annotation.
  • BackUp/Restore animation.
  • Make selection sticky in your viewport, or create a viewport that are fixed on your selection.
  • Draw a curve via the animation.
  • Motion Path animation calculator.
    This is the UI snapshot:
