Low Resolution Proxy Generator

Wrote a MEL script that can generate low resolution proxies for a given skinned mesh. The proxies are generated based on the skeleton structure and will get you 90% of the way there. Some editing of the proxies’ shape is preferable after that. These low resolution proxies are useful for previz or real-time animation playback in Maya’s viewport.

I am a Senior Technical Director with strong interests in both tech and art. My life evolves round VFX, photography, software engineering, tools programming and generally anything that looks / sounds cool.
I have done a variety of CG programming, including fluid sims, muscles, soft/rigid bodies, raytracing etc. These knowledge complement the visual works that I do as a TD in VFX.
I was interviewed by The Straits Times in May 2014 for my VFX work in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
