This is a very simple collection of tools to help in some animation tasks. The layout is minimal so the user can access the buttons all the time from a small script window.
The scripts should only be used with an armature in Pose mode.
I wrote these two scripts as a substitute for shortcuts I miss in Blender:
SELECT CHILDREN: Just select one or more bones and click on this button to have all their children selected.
SELECT SIBLINGS: Select one or more bones and click on this button to have all the other children of the same parent selected.
I wrote these other two scripts to help with constraints:
NEW ALIGNED EMPTY: Creates a new Empty object and aligns it to the bone's visual location, rotation and scale. Just select one or more bones and hit the button. Several Empties can be created at once if more than one bone is selected.
ALIGN TO BONE: Aligns the selected objects to the selected bone. Select the object(s) first and the bone in pose mode last. (Only one bone should be selected)
