mscreen is a convenient library allowing to easily draw openGL on Maya's
The goal is to offer TDs/TAs an easy way to draw basic GL primitives as visual feedback during debuging and/or in non-critical tools (the library is implemented in python, do not expect high performance).
Here's a quick demo of the main features:
import random import mscreen # let's draw a square POINTS = ((2.0, 0.0, 2.0), (2.0, 0.0, -2.0), (-2.0, 0.0, -2.0), (-2.0, 0.0, 2.0), (2.0, 0.0, 2.0)) square = mscreen.drawCurve(POINTS, color=mscreen.COLOR_GRAY) # we can move/rotate/scale it around square.move(random.randint(-10, 10), random.randint(0, 10), random.randint(-10, 10)) square.rotate(random.random()*180, random.random()*180, random.random()*180) # mscreen primitives have a full transform (om2) # let's draw it too! xfo = mscreen.drawTransform(square.transform) # let's draw a point on each corner for p in square.points: mscreen.drawPoint(p, color=mscreen.COLOR_LIGHTGRAY, size=4) # refresh the viewport, this is done explicitly to not slow down batch drawing mscreen.refresh() # What about removing stuff? mscreen.erase(xfo) # it can be done selectively mscreen.refresh() mscreen.clear() # or just clear the entire screen mscreen.refresh()
Please check the tests for more examples.
