NOTE: The Pipeline is automatically downloaded and installed by using the 4 lines of python code below. Don't use the normal download procedure.
This is the public version of my pipeline tool for Maya, Sunday Pipeline (Maya) – SPM, I have been working on for quite some time now. It’s used In-House at Sunday Animation Studio (Sunday) as describe here.
Sunday Pipeline is tightly integrated into Maya and the workflow at Sunday, it overwrites and adds a lot of stuff that other studios or individuals would not agree on. So the public edition only contains, for now, separate tools that should be production proven (I hope). As things progress in the in-house version some tools and features will spill off unto the public version at the pace I and Sunday feel is right. The in-house version also contains 3. party scripts and plugins that has been modified, but can’t be released without the original authors approval.
Sunday Pipeline (Maya) Public – SPMP.
SPMP is not opensource or holds any other licenses other that it’s a commercial product that should be respected as such. Some of the scripts and plugins is running directly from source code so it’s easier for others to customize or change as they feel. But please respect my work and Sundays decision to give back to the community so give credit if it’s seems right and pleasenotify me if your studio or company is using this toolset so I can make a cool “Used By” logo splash.
That being said SPMP it FREE, as in free beer… So enjoy and let’s get down to business.
Automatic Download and Install
The download and installation process should be very easy – you don’t have to download anything or rearrange/copy files to get it to work. The download, installation and setup all happens at once when you run the following code from inside maya.
To download and install: Open Maya, copy and paste the code below into the Script Editor “Python” tab and run it:
f=tempfile.gettempdir()+os.sep+'SundayInstallPipelinePublicPy.py' open(f,'wb').write(urllib2.urlopen('http://tinyurl.com/3tkj9l8').read()) imp.load_source('module.name',f).SundayInstallPipeline()
