FaceFX Studio Application



Tabs

Tabs in FaceFX can be moved around by simply dragging the tab to a new location inside of the application.  Certain application components (the python shell, node and curve selection widgets and additional rendering viewports) can be "torn off" the application and can exist as floating windows. 

Quicklanch Toolbar


The quicklaunch toolbar contains 10 customizable buttons for frequently-used operations.  Right-click on a button to set the icon, tooltip and command for the button. 

  • The icon needs to be a .ico file.
  • The command can be to execute a python script (exec -f "PlayPreviousAnim.py") or to execute another FaceFX Command (saveActor -file "C:\backup.facefx").  You can also call python directly by encapsulating the python code in brackets ( [print "Hello World!"; print "This is python speaking."]
  • Hold Ctrl while pressing a number key (1-0) to trigger the keyboard shortcut corresponding to the button.  The order of the number keys on the keyboard corresponds to the order of the buttons from left to right (1 is the first button on the left, 0 is the last button on the right).  
  • Your settings are saved in a binary file stored in the FaceFX user directory (i.e.  ..\My Documents\FaceFX Studio 2010\Settings\quicklaunch.cfg)
