m|Cleaner 1.41Author: Martin Yara
Updated July 2014. mCleaner is a »dashboard« full of functions for quickly cleaning various sections of the current scene like unneeded clusters/properties/groups/material libs/UVs/clips/layers etc. Each of mCleaner's functions may also be executed in »check only« mode which only logs the objects that would be deleted. See this screenshot for a feature overview of an older version of mCleaner.

The 1.41 update adds the following (from the si-community thread): Undo, you can undo ! yay! Added Delete ICE trees, Partitions, and some other garbage Move unused textures to your backup folder option added (Only works with textures inside the picture folder) Everything has been reorganized in separated commands so you can customize your own tool some other minor changes, gui adjustments, etc. to make my life easier, and hopefully yours too.

The download page includes updated usage instructions. Visit Martin's new company website http://www.skymill.co.jp (Japanese)

Evenly Spaced EdgesAuthor: Martin Yara
Averages the edge lengths in a selected edgeloop or a closed edgeloop. This is plugin file, copy to a Plugins directory of your choice (user, workgroup). It will add a menu entry 'Evenly Spaced Edge' inside the MCP transform menu. Demonstration video available here.

Based on Alen Fregtman's evenCurves.py script which does the same for curves. Loosely related to Andy Nicholas' popular »Taut« plugin.

Oops. I'm not sure why that worked locally. Maybe an encoding issue.
Anyway it should be working now, at least it does with a few proxies I tried.

Gracias Cesar !

Thanks so much Myara!

Came in handy more than a few times, but for everyday use, I frequently use these MCleaner commands ;
Rename Clusters
Rename all Polygon Clusters to their Material's Name with the option to add a Prefix and / or Sufix

Texture UVW
Rename all Texture Projection properties (Cluster, UV space property, UV Definition).
And I know a few who used it mostly for this ;
Freeze SRT

This freezes the object Scale, Rotation and Translation. Unlike the original Softimage Freeze option, this one also works with enveloped objects without breaking them.

Thanks for reply. Simply couldn't get it working. Tested on different machine, where it is working fine. No clue why :)

I don't know why it wouldn't work.

I'm not writing in Softimage lately and I don't remember exactly how I wrote mCleaner installer / uninstaller, but if the installer isn't working as expected you could try this manually:

1. Delete the preset file (mCleaner.Preset) from your preferences folder:
%USERPROFILE%\Autodesk\Softimage_2015\Data\Preferences

2. Unzip this file in your Addons folder:
%USERPROFILE%\Autodesk\Softimage_2015\Addons\

Or your Workgroup Addons folder.

Or Try installing it again:

2. Download the xsiaddon file and install it again

http://skymill.co.jp/tools/Softimage/mC ... r.xsiaddon

BTW, there was a problem with the delete normal clusters (sample clusters) option.
I fixed it some time ago, don't remember exactly when but this version should be working fine.

Thanks myara.
The installer works, and I also get the new menu option under "edit", but nothing happens when I invoke the plugin.
I can select and object and invoke the GUI property on an object, but nothing happens when I press RUN.

On other PC it all works fine, and removing normals was exactly what I needed, so thank you for this awesome tool!

I don't know why it doesn't work. Do you have any error message?

Run it, open the Script Editor and paste the log here.

It should say something like this:

Code: Select all

// -----------------------------------------------------------------------
// mCleaner 1.44 | ObjCleaner
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------
// INFO : [sample.body] Texture_Coordinates_AUTO has been deleted
// INFO : [sample.body] EnvelopWeightCls2 has been deleted
// INFO : [sample.body] EnvelopWeightCls1 has been deleted
// INFO : [sample.body] EnvelopWeightCls has been deleted
// INFO : [sample.body] Edge_AUTO has been deleted
// INFO : [sample.body] Envelope Cluster has been renamed to [EnvelopWeightCls]
// INFO : [sample.body] ObjectAttribute has been deleted
// INFO : [sample.body] G.Approximation Angle changed to 180
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------
// mCleaner | ObjCleaner : All tasks finished
mCleanerObj("ccf000_01_sample.body", false, true, true, true, false, true, false, false, false, true, true, true, true, true, true, null, null, true, true, true, true, "Texture_Coordinates_AUTO", "Texture_Projection", "Texture_Projection_Def", true, 0, 0, "EnvelopWeightCls", "Envelope_Weights", "Unfold", "Crosswalk", "MayaAttributes", true, true, true, true, false, true, false, true, 180, false, 0, 0, 0, false, false, true, 2, 1);
Check also the Plugin Manager.

Hey Myara

Same pb here, the only way to use mCleaner with SI2015 SP2 is to "Create Property" on mCleanerGUI (Property) from the Plugin Manager.
All the Best
