AS_motionTrail script

I thought I'd share a great script that a fellow iAnimator created. It's like the motion trail script in Maya...but so much better! Since download it I've been using it almost every day to track my arcs and to visualise my spacing.

Here it is straight from Angelo's blog:

This script uses the standard maya motionTrail but is linked to an expression that updates what frames are shown based on your current frame.

for example: trail 3 frames before and 3 frames after;
If you are on frame 13, the motionTrail will show you frames 10, 11, 12,13, 14, 15,  and 16.

It also shows the frames and colors of the motion trail can be changed as well. when you are done, just delete the motionTrail node and all of its connections and expressions will be deleted as well. This script is very useful for timing and spacing and especially tracking arcs

Here's the download link:
