This tool will mirror the rig to one side of the face base on another side of the facial rig. I have provided a lot of documentation on this on my blog to help prevent wrong inputs from artists.

 

Project Management Tool

This tool is used to manage art assets production pipeline. In this tool, artist can:

  • The creation of projects and assets will automatically generate necessary folders;
  • Open art asset file with the right version of DCC;
  • Prevent artists use wrong DCC version;
  • Automatically install Maya exportation tool to export assets to the right asset export folders;

I used Python, PyQt and other libraries including pynum and matplotlib to finish this triangle calculator.

Basically, this calculator can receive three valid inputs of any angles or edges of a certain triangle. Then based on an appropriate triangle calculation law it gives out the whole triangle. The calculator can directly show a clear picture of this triangle to the user.
