New Plug-in Coming Soon: AM_Ribbon

Things have been unusually hectic so far this year, and with GDC on the horizon it’s not looking to be much clearer for awhile. However, that doesn’t mean I haven’t found a way to make all of my different obligations overlap in some ways! I’ve been working a little bit as a consultant over the last few months to help out Infinite Ammo with an upcoming title: Marian.

During the course of my work on the project, I developed a new Python plug-in for Maya to help out with hair modeling. I will hopefully have a chance to deploy a new version of my free Python package soon that will include it, but in the meantime I thought I might share this video that Alec posted up on the IA website where I show what the plug-in does. Hopefully some other folks out there will find it useful too!

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for the script!!, i think this will help my life much easier.
    I am having trouble with install the script tho. After i put the script in the plugin folder and load in maya plugin manager, what command should i run to launch the tool?


  2. Hi Sean. You can access the ribbon plug-in via the am_ribbon command, or by creating an am_ribbon node manually using createNode. On the other hand, if you want the GUI to do this, you need to install the amTools Python package. If you just import it (“import amTools”) then you get a menu for it.

  3. Hi,
    I am having trouble when using script. When i used make ribbons script it is giving an error(# Error: AttributeError: filec:/ _______—–_____\ line 185: ‘module’ object has no attribute ‘am_ribbon’ # ). I am using maya 2013 .Please help?


  4. That sounds like you don’t have the plug-in loaded. Make sure it is in your plug-in path, and checked to Auto-Load in the Plug-in Manager.

  5. Ask your neighborhood tailor what patterns you can find. (Many discover
    the Simple Dress quite as an easy task to make). Develop a cool,
    comfortable sleeping atmosphere that’s free of distractions.
    Avoid medications that delay or disrupt your rest.
