jd_fixCameraSequencer is a collection of small tool have been created to help my students with the use of the Camera Sequences in Maya 2011.
Since Maya 2011 the implementation have been implen ted by Autodesk but still fill that the workflow can be better. Event more the workflow from Adobe Premiere to Maya, as well as the playblast function of the camera sequencer are a bit painfull and don’t perform as expected for production use. Hope you will enjoy it. Simply watch the video guide thru.
