Details are sketchy but hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

A couple of years ago someone made a tutorial showing how to link items to an external mot/envelope file, meaning you could just send a scene to a render que without having to update each scene individually. Does anyone remember?

I have a scene which I've broken out into 10 different passes and the producer has decided he doesn't like the f**kin' camera angle. I'm sure this technique, once setup, meant I don't have to open each separate scene and load the updated camera.

There's the Jeremy Hardin scripts.

I could never get the camera one to work. I accomplish this with a set of python scripts.

Thanks ernpchan, I'll have a look at that. Got a vague recollection that loading a mot file into a DP plugin was used. There's definitely a vid out there somewhere...
