Hey folks. I mentioned I was going to post some scripted tools for inserting/removing gamma nodes. Well, here are a few.
Check out the readme for specific info, but here's a basic rundown. There are 3 tools (and 1 bonus for the brave).
insertGamma - inserts gamma nodes with pre-set .455 (after any selected texture nodes with color connections).
deleteGamma - deletes selected gamma nodes while retaining connections
gammaValue - changes the gamma value globally or for selected nodes. This is a command-line tool only at the moment... so the value should be entered in after the command, then executed.
There is also a hyperUserInit.mel which is a replacement for a standard maya UI script. If you choose to try this, make sure to back up the original one. This update adds the ability to insert Gamma nodes by Ctrl+Alt+Shift clicking on a connection line in the hyperShade.
These are really simple scripts. We don't have a lot of time or manpower to devote to such tools, but I'm glad Al could get these done so quickly. Thanks go to Albert (a MotR cohort) for coding.
