ritalin - so maya cam remembers where to look at

a very handy script made by my colleague Stefan Kubicek

- it automatically puts the cameras pivot point to your selection
- basically it always presses "f" when you select something without actually moving the cam
- its is 100% not noticeable or annoying (you will notice when its gone tho)

especially when you are very close to your character it is a huge time and frustration safer.

here are some Vids

This looks awesome. I haven't tried using any Python scripts in Maya before so I'm not sure what they're supposed to look like or if I'm doing it wrong, but it's not working for me. I get the error that no such file exists and the contents of the .py file looks like html rather than anything relevant to Maya. I'm guessing there's something wrong with the link because I R-clicked and saved it, but when I try to L click it I get an error page.

Yes, the link is broken. Btw, Ritalin does not only react to selection changes on the object level, but also on component level (it will tumble the camera around selted vertices, edges, etc, a single one of them, or combination thereof). it also reacts to transformation changes, so moving the selection somewhere else makes your camera tumble around the new location. Thirdly, it will also tumble the camera around the currently active influence joint when working using the paint skin weights tool and selecting the joint for painting through the right-click menu (selecting the joint from the influence objects list in the tools window doesn't work yet).

fixed the download.
now a zip file with the script.
it was not a broken link. seems like you cant really download .py files because the server interprets them and throws an error. interesting

Awesome, Thanks! I've got it working now and it's pretty darn cool. Just like you said, it's one of those things that just feels right.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.

I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post
to let you know. The design and style look great though!
Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos
