These compounds enable Softimage riggers to use arbitrary shape pivoting. They support arbitrary and even actively deforming polygonal objects.

That's great - thanks for sharing these Pedro. It should be a standard tool in any rigging software (but is in none afaik!)

*btw thought I'd mention .. I noticed you have polygon info on in the viewport. For some reason in a lot of scenes it will slow down the viewport performance down to 1/5th in some cases (lots of polygons).

I noticed I made the mistake of assuming the forward vectors will always be pointing out, and they don't, so I was trying to use the compound today and failing. Hadn't encountered this before but it is now fixed. Same file link updated.
