Introduction

This is a script for Daz Studio 1, 2, 3&4 and 4.5 or greater

it lets you rotate something ( usually an arm ) around an arbitrary axis in space


History


July 25 2014 12:09 am   Released
Jul 26, 2014, 5:08 am Added the "keep target orientation" feature



Installation

The zip package is found at the bottom of this page
unzip it in your daz content folder, typically 
C:\Program Files\DAZ\Studio\content\ 
or
C:\Program Files (x86)\DAZ\Studio\content\
once installed, it will appear in your content library, under Studio / Scripts / mcasual 
or
C:\Users\Public\Documents\My DAZ 3D Library\
once installed, it will appear in your content library, under My DAZ 3D Library / Scripts / mcasual 



Use


Select a target node, it can be any node in the scene, example a screw

Select a turning node, usually a figure's shoulder or collar bone

specify a rotation angle

specify which animation frames to process

click the 'doit' button

and it's done

the turning node ( arm ) rotated around the axis going through the shoulder joint and the screw


There is also an option named "maintain target orientation"

this is useful for a case like this

you want to rotate a leg around the thigh-to-foot axis, 
but you want to foot to counteract the leg movement
this way the foot stays perfectly still

You should turn off  this option if the 'target' node is not affected by the 'turning node' rotation, 
since it will create a useless keyframe of the target node.
