Python Scripting : IK to FK snapping, part 3 (Maya/Rigging)

zeth willie will take you through This three parter. . . a trilogy, about the basics of setting up an IK/FK snapping script that will correctly position your IK control and pole vector based on the rotations of your FK arm. A little bit of math, some elbow grease and a winning attitude are you need! And some python scripting. And some secret nodes. And a bunch of other stuff too. . .

Part 1 - covers the basics of what it is, why we'd bother and some basics of vector math that we'll need.
Part 2 - covers the hows and whys of writing the basic version of the python script.
Part 3 - covers using funky, cool message attributes to enhance the functionality of the script, etc.

Python Scripting : Offset Animator (Free Script)

Script with custom GUI for pattern/architectural animating is done by  Boris Ignjatovic. Implemented some features for easing and controlling the animation speed. Also there are two options for placing the animation. First one is based on set driven keys in which case script creates the control with a custom attribute that controls the animation, and second one is placing the animation directly on timeline.

You can download Offset Animator from his website:
