Shed Pose LibraryShed_poseLib is a simple but versatile tool to manage poses and share it between animators and projects. The poses are stored in XML format, and distributed in two main repositories, one global and another base in the current Softimage data base.
Once we have the poses stored we can create the Poses Sets. The poses sets are the final interface for the animators and doesn't need to be for only one character. They offer a very simplify interface and allow the exchange between scenes, animators and projects.
Feedback, bugs and screen captures using the tool are welcome :) I will try to fix bugs and update it with new features, but I can't promise anything :P Hope you understand. Please read the licensing for more information
I would like to thanks Sly, PH, Renaud and all Shed team to allow me to release this tools for free. Also I would like to thanks Jeremie Passerin for his tips and advices. :)
