How to setup you own Pie Menus in Blender


Sebastian is on a roll! Here's another quick video showing how to customize pie menus in the upcoming 2.72 version.

In 2.72 there will be a new UI feature, which enhances user interaction in Blender: Pie Menus.
The backend has been implemented in C (thanks to Antony Riakiotakis!), but the actual pies can be easily written in Python (Pie-thon, huhuhu...). Here's a quick guide how you can setup your own menus!

    This was very informative. Have you made any other resources for learning involving Blender scripting, especially pie creation? I have become fascinated with how rows/columns change the layout and very curious how to achieve the desired layout I want. Mainly how to split rows or columns in half etc to get multiple options for each of the 8 slots. Thanks in advance and cheers.
