This is a blender addon which hosts a few tools for improving and extending the use of the blender pose library for character animation.
The source for this code is available at https://github.com/TheDuckCow/pose-tools, developed by Patrick W. Crawford. To install, download the pose-tools.py addon and install directly into blender (as a .py file, not a zip).
See this demo video of the addon for example uses.
- Apply Mixed Pose: Apply a percentage mix between the current pose and the selected library pose.
- Mixed Paste Pose: Apply a percentage mix between the current pose and the previously copied pose
- For both tools: Slider in the redo-last menu is for interactive changing of the pose, slider in the animation tab is for pre-setting the mix percentage but you can still use the redo-last menu slider.
- Limited Add Pose: (planned) Create a new pose based only on position of selected bones. The default behavior is a new pose will store a keyframe for all bone channels, selected/visible or not.
- Sync-linked Pose Lib: (planned) If a pose library is linked or appended, auto or manually resync it with updated poses if the external pose library changed.
- Create a tool that easily mixes library poses with current poses
- Allow easy and more direct library linking/accessing of external pose libraries
- Improve the ease and clarify of use of the library pose tools
