“YS_Character_Kit,” the 2nd package of YS Plugins, has been released at the official website of D-Storm,Inc.
YS Plugins are important plugins for LW animation which Yamatoworks and Sublimation have developed in cooperation.
YS_Character_Kit includes two plugins; YS:Char_Select_Manager and YS:Pose_Clip.
YS:Char_Select_Manager is to make a panel with buttons to select bones and nulls so you can easily pick them up.
YS:Pose_Clip is to register key poses so you can reconstruct the same poses in one move.
For example, at Yamatoworks we often use it for hand animation.
Once you bend bones to make a fist and resister it, you can make it again simply by sliding a knob on the controller.
So neat! It saves you a lot of time when you animate and it also allows you to mix multiple poses.
These two are ones of crucial plugins we Yamatoworks and Sublimation choose.
Also other helpful plugins will be released soon.
