PoserPhysics Extras

I am releasing a freebie bundle of utility scripts which assist with PoserPhysics 2012.  Once installed, the bundle is available in the Scripts -> PoserPhysics -> PoserPhysics Extras menu.  In some cases, these scripts require PoserPhysics SR1 (which is still a couple of weeks away from being released).  The scripts include: - Run this script to remove all physics simulation position and rotation animation keyframes from the scene for all props and figures.  This is handy when you change a figure or prop from Moveable to Keyframed (since you will want to delete the physics keyframes for that scene element). -  This script helps you create already (PoserPhysics) joined chains of boxes, spheres, capsules and chain links.  Select the shape, number of links and the gap between the links, then click the Make Chain button.  Once the chain is made, select the leftmost object and the click the Create Group button in PoserPhysics to create a Poser Grouping prop to enable you to move the chain around.  If using Hinge joints, keep the chain pointed in the X, Y or Z axis.  The following video was done with the help of this script....

DeleteAllChainProps - If you need to recreate your chain, then use this script to delete the original chain before recreating with - If you are using PhysicsForce props, you will not want them to render in your animation, so make them all invisible with this prop. - Use this script to see you PhysicsForce props if needed after using the above script. - This script will make every prop in your scene Immoveable (in PoserPhysics).  This is handy is you have loaded a large room scene with lots of furniture or other items which will be static in the simulation. - This script can be run to make the tower used in the following video.  You can amend the script to generate different shapes.  Remember to reduce gravity so the tower stays upright (use -3 or -4).
