Because I only have a mouse to paint weights with, I wrote this tool to make things quicker and easier on myself. Uses PyQt; a PySide version shall be added soon. To launch it: paste the following below into a python scipt editor inside Maya:


if 'softSelectToWeights' in locals():
    import softSelectToWeights



Make sure a weighting option (add, multiply, replace) and a object to weight from the list on the right is selected in the UI before hitting the 'weight it!' button.

Also added is a utility to save and load soft select tool options as presets.

Constructive comments and feedback are always appreciated! 

Special Thanks to Lee Dunham for his code for accessing weight values from soft selection!
