Just a very quick post to share some speed-ups we’re using in the studio.Â Some of you may have noticed that blender 2.5’s UI is missing its bevel weight options from 2.49.Â Luckily all the bevel weights are editable in python.Â We’ve coded this quick add-on to bring back the missing functionality (which you can install from the user preferences add-on tab [remember to enable it] or run from a blender text window).
EDIT: Updated yet again for 2.55 (thanks for the comments below – sorry for sluggishness on my part!)
After you’ve installed the add-on tab into edit mode and hit spacebar and type ‘Bevel’ and you’ll see the three functions.Â Remember to add a bevel modifier and set it to ‘weights’ mode.
We’ve also been using Richard Olsson’s Batch Renamer to help keep scenes organised.Â If you add a custom keybinding to it then there’s no more copying and pasting into the buttons window.
That’s all for now,Â I’ll blog again soon with some of the models I’ve been working on!
Edit: Nathan Letwory (AKA Jesterking) made a nice tutorial video about this on youtube:
