- Object to Mesh, is a deep freeze mesh. - Select the vertices minor to zero in x. - Push all normals outside in selected objects. Good for quality checklist!. - Resym save XML map, for use Resym Mesh and Vertex Weights - Resym Mesh and Resym Vertex Weights. - Reconst, Recover the simmetry of the object and create two uvs. - Recover the simmetry in the uvs. - Export & Import vertex groups. Good for save armature settings. - Overlap Uvs is a simple reSymmetry tool for uvs.
- Create one object per each shape. Good for export to other platform. - Create 2 vertex groups for mix shapes. - Connect all shapes with the "L R" groups! Good for facial rigs. - Create a 2D panel for mix this shapes.

Render & Overrides: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rDBWFm0E3c
- Make a .bat (windows) or .sh (Linux) for render by command line!. - Make Python Batch make a batch for a single Machine. If the render fail, python erase the broken files and run the render again!. - Render all scenes in the .blend. - Render Active scene in the .blend. - Render the scenes in the list. Now you have a gui! - You can specify if you need render only the current frame in all cases. - Overrides on/off let you see the overrides with F12 (render preview). - Check list let you know if the overrides are working correctly. - Create Override List, use only if the list does not exists. - You can override materials on LINKED OBJECTS!! Like in Softimage - Apply and Restore is a danger option, for test the overrides in the scene you can apply the materials to the groups and restore.
Overrides List: - In the box you can specify the overrides, e.g.: * You want override a group called "CUBE" with material "BI_WOOD": "CUBE","BI_WOOD" * You want override two groups, "CUBE" and "MONKEY" with material "BI_WOOD": [["CUBE","BI_WOOD"],["MONKEY","BI_WOOD"]] In the array the 1st element is the Group, and the 2nd is the Material. - When you have the override use Check List overrides and see de console!. Danger Zone: - Apply overrides: Apply the overrides to objects. - Restore overrides: Restore original materials.
