Issues with selection order

Post by anzovin » Tue Aug 06, 2013 12:41 pm

Hi!

First of all, thanks for the awesome tool! It's definitely the best picker tool I've ever seen.

Unfortunately, we are running into an issue with it. We've got a bunch of tools that rely on selecting the character's controls in a particular order for them to work correctly. However, when, say, three controls are selected through the anim picker, they appear to always have the same selection order in Maya, no matter what order they were selected in the picker. For instance, selecting the following three controls in any order,

gets you this in the script editor;

AnimSchoolPicker select ARTJoint34 locator8 locator9;

Is there any way around this?

Thanks!

It seems like selection order is still a bit strange with the picker. Are you planning on improving this? It would be quite handy to be able to select things in the correct order to make constraints and such but with the picker you aren't in control of the order.

It would be a great improvement if you were able to have it respect your selection order and in terms of a multiple selection button alphabetical order would probably be best allowing you to select say a right hand, copy the pose, then select the left hand and paste the pose onto the correct controls.

thanks
