The Loop Project Scripts


 This page hosts the Mr. Looper loop-making script and scripts derived from it.

As of 10-9-11, all scripts on this page have been updated for Poser 9/Poser Pro 2012 compatibility.


 
Loop scripts

 
File: Date Modified: Description:
mr_looper7c.py Updated 10-9-11 A script which creates toroid loops surrounding any geometry which intersects a user-positioned plane.
chain_maker4c.py Updated 10-9-11 A script which applies the methods of the Mr. Looper script to create chain figures of arbitrary length, with basic ERC.  Chain .cr2 template created by lesbentley.
mr_skinner5g.py Updated 10-9-11 A script which applies the methods of the Mr. Looper script to extrude a "skin" mesh surrounding all geometry within a selection bounding box.  Thanks to markschum and odf for their advice and suggestions!
extruder4h.py Updated 10-9-11 A script which extrudes a tube along a path defined by positioning marker points.  Includes animation and basic dynamics.
chain_prop_path4c.py Updated 10-9-11 A script which builds a chain prop along a path defined by positioning marker points.  Includes animation and basic dynamics.
chain_prop_loop1f.py Updated 10-9-11 A combination of the chain prop script and the initial loop script.  Generates looped chains surrounding any geometry which intersects a user-positioned plane.  Requested by EnglishBob.
chain_pose_path4c.py Updated 10-9-11 A script for posing chain or tube figures.  Specifically intended for use with the chain_maker script, but can work with other figures.  To qualify, all actors must have joints which are oriented in the same direction.   Includes animation and basic dynamics.

This script is still WIP and can encounter errors when rotating the base link of the selected figure.

hair_to_path6d.py Updated 10-9-11 A script for shaping Poser's dynamic hair, using the same path handling as the extruder and chain script.  Thanks to RedPhantom for extensive testing and feedback.

 
 
Misc. utilities

 
File: Date Modified: Description:
merge_actor_geoms1b.py Updated 10-9-11 A utility script which will merge several selected props into a single prop.  Useful for a scene with many loops or tubes.
delete_actors.py Added 4-4-11 A utility script which will delete several actors from a scene with one button-click.
rope_shader.zip Added 3-10-11 A WIP procedural rope shader for Poser.  (Derived from Bagginsbill's stripes example.)
