Bone Layer Manager Add-on


Manage your bones (or rather, those in Blender) with this new add-on by Alfonso Annarumma.

Alfonso writes:

I've released a new Addon: Bone Layer Manager.

What the script does:

  • set name of layer
  • select bone on layer
  • lock bone on layer
  • move bone to layer
  • automatic creation of bone group of the bone in the layer with random color assignment
  • select the protected layer for the link exportation.

    This is awesome .A much welcome and needed feature. Thanks Alfonso!
    The scene layers also needed a manager like this forever, not sure why the blender devs never added one.

      sorry for the problem, I've revolved it.
      I'm not a developer, but with the community support and feedback, I've done this script and previus Layer manager (now in the trunk for testing :D).

  • harryabreu

    Hi Polygonesrus like you I use Blender and love it but I know a little about to programming and programming isn't to simple or ease.
    Please when you put some comment about some one please be more polite because your comment is a little bit hard and all job need respect.
    Alfonso like other in our community did it for free.
    Alfonso my apologyse I will report it properly with console report.
    Thank you very much I know this script is a very good tool.

    • Alfonso Annarumma

      I've reuload the file with the correction.
      The problem was the file name. You can solve it by your self just removing the dot in the "0.5" name.

  • harryabreu

    Your right now it works :-) give me some time to tell the real feedback.
    Thank you very much.
