global launch search???
show user profile  Bolteon
i have apparently been living under a rock...

max 2014 has a command type prompt ala TAB in nuke or typing in autocad?

press X if you're in 2014 (and up i'm guessing) and please tell me i just missed this and this isn't an epic tool that hasn't been talked about much.

Old news.

Don't use it, but can see the benefits of never having to use the toolbar again (theoretically).

activeType, been using it since Max's just taken AD 4 years to "help themselves" to the idea, like they did with Outliner and nested layers this year.

I love this feature of nuke, I've not used Max for a while, wonder if this is in Maya?

(edit, searched) Yes, there IS a script for maya, very nice :) Although the popup menus in maya are very nice, sometimes it's difficult to remember which combination of keys to press to get the menu that you want, haha -

I do know maya has something like this.

You can search for a tool and then the tool itself will be highlighted (in menu or on the toolbar). However... It seems to only be on the mac version (or at least I haven't found it on the PC version).

the script works pretty good in maya. Only thing though, you can't bind the TAB key in maya (at least I've found no way to do so), so my natural reaction to hit the TAB key when I want a tool will have to be changed, haha -

We are moving to Maya 2015 soon (on a annual payment plan so we'll be upgrading every year). This will come in handy, thanks.

Just goes to show how the whole software programming industry needs to really get a grip. Power users don't want a pretty, cluttered interface. This is how Autodesk's primary product - AutoCAD works at its core - command line. Most of us who have used AutoCAD for donkey's years rarely click buttons onscreen! Shame it's taken an independent coder to implement it in max

For the sake of clarity, this feature is default in 2014 max and maya has had the hyper menu for years.

Not 100% sure it's called that but everything you can do in maya you can start with the space bar and a few flicks of the mouse.
