Installation

getenv MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH

Under Windows it's usually:

C:/Users/user/Documents/maya/mayaversion/plug-ins

Put the *.py files in your maya script path,

getenv PYTHONPATH


To launch the tool

Load it with the plug-in manager then:

Python:

import zi_wireframe

zi_wireframe.main()


We recommend using a shortcut

NOTE

The display features will be applied to the selected mesh


HOW TO USE
  • Surface Color Please pick the desired geometry displayed rgb color (rgb.a)
  • Line color – This stands for wireframe color itself.
  • Surface Alpha – so you can specify the alpha component of the Surface Alpha (rgb.a)
  • Depth Priority – Actually the Zdeph test for the wireframe display. Increasing this value would draw the wireframe ontop of the rest of scene.
  • Line Width – The thickness of the wireframe
  • Split Threshold – A convenient attribute for ziCut. The resulting vertices will be merged with the existing ones depending of this distance value.
  • Backface Culling – The wireframe polygons facing away the camera won't be display if the value is low.
  • Source Backface – If ticked on, the DAG mesh geometry will be set as backface culled.
  • Override Shading – if on, the DAG mesh geometry will display its polygon surface.
