    First off, you are (obviously) a beta tester. At your expense.

    This set of objects was created in Modeler, a long time ago.
    They were never rigged for Layout because they were used elsewhere.
    Using my new tools made this a breeze.

    This kind of crash, where there is no warning generated, would probably not ever seem to be 'repeatable'.
    But I think it would still be logged.

    Sounds like un-caught exceptions. That can seem totally random even though it's happening in just a few places.
    It's totally frazelling figuring out what all exceptions should be handled.

    Pivots Added

    I've added pivots to the Rig Ripper because while playing with a variety of models, found that I did Twist and TipMove often enough not to want to have to repeat those either.

    It seems to me like it should be possible to complete a rig in modeler.
    Modeler goes part of the way but stops short of a complete setup.
    There is a strange division happening.

    Saving Rigs with Python

    The basis of this method is constructing rigs in modeler using skelegons.
    I find it much easier than in layout because of layers.

    It's been well worth testing possible issues with rigged objects, and loading multiple items 'from scene'.
    One thing that might seem reasonable to do is not.
    That is, loading more than one of any...

    MIDI Marker Tool

    I've built a simple tool that extracts the Marker data from a MIDI file and writes it to a csv list.
    The list can then be saved to a file.

    That was a pretty cool idea.
    But not as usefull now.
    Layout supports a single audio file in a scene, which is not what could be used as a 'track'.
    Video editing is essentially non existant, so...

    Direct musical notation control of a model is pretty mechanical, and not very useful in general since it is so specific.
