TC Sketch v1.1 – Grease pencil for XSI.

Like the grease pencil tool for Maya, this tool allows you to draw with the sketch tool for 2d animation/per frame annotation, directly in the XSI viewport.
Changes V1.1

  • Assembled the XSI Bezier curve tool, CV Curve tool and Curve Text tool to be used from the TC_sketch PPG
  • Added the “edit frames” command, now you can move your frames in time, selecting a frame in the listbox and using the “up” and “down” buttons.
  • Added the code to work on linux system.
  • The current frame stays visible until the next frame.
  • The listbox now let you navigate/select frames to edit.
  • “Default frame duration” option in the setup tab was renamed to “Last frame duration”. So now it just affects the last frame of the animation.
  • Re worked the entire keyframing command

Features V1.0

  • Drawing mode Auto-keyframing (selectability/visibility).
  • Curves color and Visibility/Selectability overrides.
  • Curve editing The “nav slider” in the “Edit Frames” group is useful to edit/add curves to existing frames. Change this slider will jump the XSI timeline to where the sketched curve is in time.
  • Auto-select curves option will automatically select all the curves for that given frame.
  • XSI Brush tool and View Proportional Transform Tool can be called from the TC_sketch PPG.
  • The Sketch tool creates a standard XSI curve, so you can use any XSI deformer tools on it.
