I was doing some rigging recently, when something went wrong and the whole rig exploded on me. ‘By cricketty’ I thunk to meself, ‘there should be a stop button for expressions like there is for my bandsaw’. Those things could take someone’s leg orf.
So I got out my scripting iron, and clickety-clackety wrote this little script.
It has two modes:
- using the Pause / Resume… buttons pauses and resumes expressions, either on all layers or just selected ones. In this mode it won’t start any expressions that have been disabled manually.
- Using the Start… buttons will start all inactive expressions, including those that have been paused by the script, and those that have been turned off manually.
The script adds a comment to the end of any expression that it has paused. The default comment is
"//paused" if you want to change this then look for the line:
var pausedTag = "//paused";
…and change the value to anything you like, as long as it starts with two forward slashes.
