Software:
Softimage

Scripting Language:
Python

what it does:
– saves poses using XML files

how it does:
– on the first run the user has to setup a global path for the poses and to add characters
– those above will be saved as user preference and automatically used upon new runs. They can also be modified and the preferences will be updated
– with a character open, the user will have to select the desired controllers
– when the pose is saved, the plugin creates a XML file to store the pose, a synoptic file ( basically an HTML file) that holds the ‘image button’ for the pose and finally a thumbnail preview used in the synoptic file.
– updates the UI with the created pose

PS. Was slightly painful to code the UI due to the dynamic refreshing of it. Also, saving the preferences using softimage’s preferences system is not really friendly, proabably would have been better to save them as an XML file too. Maybe in another iteration
