mcjSceneGraf for DS4.5

SceneGraf plugin DS3



Introduction


This is the plugin  ( dll for windows ) for Daz Studio 4.5 named mcjSceneGraf,

In the attachments at the bottom of this page you will find  the plugin and the manual

I
wrote this plugin for my animation needs, so it's very basic, no frills.

This plugin lets you view and tweak the animation curves for the currently selected node.


Installation


the zip file contains the plugin (dll) for 32 and 64-bit windows systems ( it was tested only on windows 7 64-bit )

place the dll in your daz studio plugins folder

on my PC this means

C:\Program Files (x86)\DAZ 3D\DAZStudio432bit\plugins

and

C:\Program Files\DAZ 3D\DAZStudio4\plugins

if you place both 32 and 64 bit dlls in the same folder, Daz Studio should ignore the non-applicable version

there's a 600-pixel wide version for display resolutions like 1280x800

and a 800-pixel resolution for display resolutions like 1920 x 1200


                Warning                   


if you experience daz studio crashes, you could remove dzsceneGraf.dll from the plugins folder.
This way you can know if dzsceneGraf.dll is the culprit, because indeed, plugins can cause crashes.

Use


Bring SceneGraf into view using Daz Studio's menu : Window/ Pane (Tabs) / Scene Graf

By default Scene Graf displays 3 channels that are common to all nodes

the x, y, z rotation channels

Body parts of figures use different names for those channels

ex: the XRotation for the head is called "Head bend"

Each curve has a header that displays

- the node name

- the property

- the allowed minimum and maximum of the graph's vertical axis ( user modifiable )

- the value at the current frame ( user modifiable )


There's also an "action" drop-down list which lets you

- adapt the graph's vertical axis to the values in the playrange
- adapt the graph's vertical axis to the values in the animation range
- use the property's Minimum and maximum value for the graph's vertical axis

To modify a keyframe, left-click and drag one of the green dots

To create a new keyframe, left-click and drag one of the white dots

To delete a keyframe, right-click on a green dot.

and that's about it :)
