Default Comet Tools and Character Rigging

First Post!

Okay I just purchased The Gnomon Character Rigging DVD by Alex Stanley. I see that he relies on using the comet tools quite alot. I am using Maya 2013 and was wondering if the comet tools were compatible.

Also, Alex mentioned there was a bug in the CometSaveWeights mel and said it could be found on the disc, where is this located? I cant find it anywhere.

Thanks in advance for any advice on this!

I spent a decent amount of time finding the all the answers for this. I got all the comet tools working and it's pretty easy.

I'm attaching a .zip with the newest version of the Comet tools and some instructions on how to get them working in newer versions of Maya.


Now I have a question of my own. I too am going through the Character Rigging DVD and my storeRigPose isn't working. It gives the error: Error: line 1: Cannot find procedure "storeRigPose". // when I click on the button on the shelf.

Any ideas for why this isn't working?

Same problem here.

Still using Maya 2012 but neither the Comet tools or the Gnomon rig shelf are working.
Very annoying as he is using these tools in the tutorial and without them I can't carry on...

Default cometskinweights fix

I am following along with the video "Character Rigging Production Practices and Techniques"

In chapter six the instructor says there is a fixed script for the skin weights mel.

However in my download there is no script.


Can you please advise as to where this corrected script can be found????
