Tested as_HyperPoint  on these models - Girl, 2 Man models with different topology, woman, Lady and old man

Still R&D is going on for the better placement of joints and to support more features  ..

And more editing tools are WIP for for faster editing of joints placements ..

Reactions: 


Hi This Is One More New Post

You don't have to sweat bullets about Skinning anymore. Yep, I am serious! Rig anything from Props, toddlers to Beasts with my Flagship product "Advanced Hyper Skinning System". Stay tuned for the official release.



The critical part in any skinning is Division Of Regions according to Joints. Hyper Skinning can divide the skinning regions easily and Its weighting system is unique in its nature.. Even hyper skinning has joint level control with attributes 'blendMethod' and 'blendValue'. It's hyper smooth and as_SmoothNearest options are unbeatable. After Hyper Skinning, only maya skinCluster remains. No need of additional deformers. Hyper Skinning uses Maya's default 'Smooth Bind' option. After hyper skinning rig is as light as earlier with updated skinning. And its unique algorithm, preserves volume at different regions like elbows and shoulders..

asNode (Part 01) -- One node for most of the Rigging Work in Maya (Video Tutorial)

Reactions: 


Hi This Is One More New Post



asNode -- One node for most of the Rigging Process in Maya (Updated with Quick Example)
http://vimeo.com/subbu118/asnodefeaturestutorial

Download:
-------------
asNode along with example code as shown in video is available for free download here  :

http://www.creativecrash.com/maya/script/asnode-one-node-for-most-of-the-general-process-in-maya-rigging

Purpose:
-----------

This node is the key module in maya rigging process. One node for the most of the rigging process.
asNode is still going to include many general methods required for rigging / animation process.
It played key role in hyper skinning system as shown in below video:
asNode was developed with the inspiration from PyNode in PyMel, But with extended support to Rigging process.
And this doesn't depend on PyNode in PyMel. Its purely depends only on Maya api and maya.cmds.

Features:
----------
1. One node for most of the general process in Maya Rigging
2. asNode was developed with the inspiration from PyNode in PyMel
3. It has extensive support to Rigging and  General Pipeline.
4. Doesn't depend on any external modules like PyMel
5. Purely depends on maya.cmds and maya python api
6. Increase programming speed in rigging & pipeline upto 3-4 times
7. A Node with true Object Oriented Programming (OOP)
8. Auto completion list varies with change in node type
9. Tight Integration With All Auto Rig tools like (as_EasyBird, as_EasyRig, as_EasyQuad etc.)

Updates:
----------
2014.09.08 -- Updated asNode.rar with help file on all methods by adding 'asNode.pypredef'. Open it with wordpad
2014.09.21 -- Test files are added in asNode.rar for asN.addChild, asN.mConstrain etc
2015.02.05 -- Auto completion methods will update and change according the selection type of object
2015.02.06 -- Fixed the method : asN.jntOrient and added new methods : asN.get_2PosExtn, asN.get_2PosVect.
And added new example maya files

Future Updates:
-------------------
1. More rigging and pipeline related methods will be added to asNode

Usage:
--------
Apply asNode on any maya node and then start using following methods:
[ '_selected', 'addAttr', 'addAttrDivider', 'addChild', 'addPrefix', 'addSuffix', 'applyCtrlColor', 'asObj', 'attr', 'capitalize', 'center',
'centerPivot', 'child', 'connectAttr', 'connectionInfo', 'connections', 'constrainTo', 'contains', 'count', 'decode', 'delete', 'deleteAttr',

 'title', 'transferAnimTo', 'transferAnimToGrp', 'translate', 'translateBy', 'unfreezeRotation', 'unfreezeTrans', 'unparent', 'untemplate']

Testing the asNode:
--------------------------
create two spheres named 'pSphere1' and 'pSphere2'
And then, Run these commands from python window

from asNode import *
p2 =asNode('pSphere2')
p2.select()
p2.snapPosTo([5,0,0])
asN =asNode('pSphere1')

#_ That's it, then start using:
asN.snapPivTo(p2)   #_ Now pSphere1's pivot is at 'pSphere2'
or
Create any maya poly object or locator then try this command
from asNode import *
node =asN._selected()[0]   #_ asN is short form for selecting selected objects..
node.rename('Ball')            #_ Rename to 'Ball'
node.addSuffix('_Sph')       #_ Now it adds '_Sph' suffix to the ball, But still node is updated with all these changes

It is the only system it shows the automation process in skinning in video form on Internet..

Its unique in its nature to deliver best results like volume preservation at various areas on character.

Now it becomes more powerful with its advance features.. Solve Fingers & Smooth Nearest



I have utilized the Great Dane model in this presentation which is downloaded from creativecrash.com.

Special Thanks to Chris Baker for such a awesome model. It suits my requirement in this presentation..



Thanks to my beloved wife Prasanna for her support in this process and giving name 'Hyper Skinning'.

She derived that word from 'Hyper Active Kids..'
