Adding Extra Attributes

python
maya

#1

Hey there!

This might be a simple question, but I would love the help.

I was watching the GDC talk from Bungie today and would like to find out how to do this feature. Basically, under the attributes tab, there is a extra Attributes section, they added in more headings such as “IK Chain”, “Bind Joints” and so on. Here’s a screen shot of what I am talking about:

Would this be done with the API or is there some normal maya commands that can do this?

Thank you very much in advance, I look forward seeing what you guys have to say!

The most likely answer is creating a custom attribute editor template for their nodes.

It has been a good while since I’ve looked at it,but it was always a bit of an arcane art from what I remember.

Thank you very much for your suggestion @R.White I’ll take a look into it and see what I can conjure up. Any “gotchas” that I should look out for when using these templates?
