This little tool I wrote could help quicken some processes.


It allows you to quickly

- Parent the selected objects sequentially
- Match an object's position to another
- Match an objects's translate, rotate and scale attributes to another's
- Rename the selected objects


 - Where is the Sequence Pareting useful?


 It basically parents the 1st object to the 2nd object, the 2nd object to the 3rd and so on and so forth.

 * Joint Chains

 * FK controls

 * General object parenting

 
- Where is the Match Transforms / Position Tool useful?


 
* Matching one object's position to another's, without changing rotation (Match Position)

 * Matching locators to objects, for orient constraints etc. (Match Transforms)

 * Various, smaller tasks


How to Install:

1) Copy the script to your script folder: /User/Documents/maya/version/scripts

2) Then load it to your script editor:
     - Open the script editor.
     - Within the Script editor: File -> Load Script...

     - Navigate to the script folder and select RiggingMultiToolv1.


3) Once its loaded into your Script editor, go back to File -> Save Script to Shelf...

4) Run it from there.


Notes:

1) When using the Parent tool, an error message will appear saying: "No object matches name: ". This does not affect the   parenting process and it will work like it should.

2) There is an issue when running the script for the first time in a scene:
An error message pops up, saying "
Error: "$windowParent" is an undeclared variable.". You may have to re-run the script, it should work then.

3) I will make an update shortly, so installation and use is faster. (by typing multiTool(); in the command line)

I will eventually try to implement more sub-tools in the future, if their functions prove useful.

Feel free to comment or report a bug / problem.
