Tread Creator:

This script gives you the ability to duplicate several objects along a path in maya. The most important feature is that you can drive the treads around the path in a endless cycle, this is not available in the standar motion path tool in maya(wich is limited to a value between 0-1).

This gives you a great starting point whether you want to create treads to your tank, create a line with trees randomly distributed, create a chain link or just simply duplicate an object along a path.


How to install:

1. Import "TreadCreator.mel" via the script editor in maya
2. Select the code with "Ctrl-A" and simply drag and drop it in your shelf with the MMB.
3. Right click on the new icon->edit, name it  "TreadCreator" and assign the "TreadCreator.png" icon
4. Run the script!
