Blue Pencil for Maya 2015

Version 2.01

Blue Pencil 2.0 is now available for download. This release includes full support for Maya 2015 on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

Under the hood of Blue Pencil 2.0 is an updated drawing engine that takes advantage of Viewport 2.0 and the new drawing APIs that were first released with Maya 2014. Along with full VP 2.0 OpenGL support, the updated engine includes a number of performance updates and enhancements available using the new APIs.

Keyframe MP for OS X (Beta)

Public Beta

By popular request, I've made the latest beta release of Keyframe MP for OS X available as a public download. As with the Windows release, anyone can use the "lite" version of player for as long as they like, while those with a valid license can take advantage of the advanced features included in the full version.

As part of the Keyframe MP introductory offer, all licenses purchased during the introductory period are cross-platform and can be used with both Windows and OS X verisons of the player.

Keyframe MP is Now Available

Try It Today!

I’m pleased to announce the initial release of Keyframe MP is now available for download. Grab a copy and try it today.

The project, which originally started as an in-house script for Maya known simply as the Playblast/Reference Viewer, has evolved into a fully functional media player with an extensive set of features not found in the original script, including audio scrubbing, RAM caching, bookmarking and more.

Check out the Overview and Quick Start Guide videos for an introduction to Keyframe MP.

Additionally, Maya - Syncing to the Timeline outlines the steps for connecting to Keyframe MP from Maya.

Keyframe MP is currently available for 64-bit version of Windows (Vista or newer) with an OS X version in development.

A New Look and a New Release

It's been several years since this site went live and during that time it has evolved in ways that fell outside the scope of the original design. New tools, a growing collection of tutorials and scripts, and an expanded vision have all contributed to my desire for a new look. That being said, I’m pleased to reveal the new look which I feels better reflects this site today.

That’s great, love the look, but what about the new release, the one you mentioned in the title? In the next few days I will be announcing my next official release. Without giving too much away, let’s just say that its predecessor brought about a great deal of interest last year and it's been high on the wishlist of many animators.
