Is there a script somewhere for this?
show user profile  Sir_Manfred
I am trying to find a script that basically lets me turn the Working Pivot into a Local Pivot.
I am sure there must be one somewhere but I can't quite find it.
If I knew Max Script I would just use the coordinates and rotation of the working pivot and put it in the local pivot.
But since I don't know Max Script I might have to do it by hand which seems is kinda tedious when dealing with many objects.

Anyone know of anything?

Dunno if this will help, dunno what you're working on... try the second option.

I use those all the time.
That is indeed not what I'm looking for :)

Yeah, I assumed as much... but that was my only idea so far (since I can't maxscript to save my life).

If I still had max installed I would have had a look.
I don't even remember there being a working pivot and a local pivot. I only remember one pivot per object.

I had a look. Can't see any mention of local pivot in the maxscript help.

I'm using this script to align the working pivot to a selected subobject:

It contains things like:
"WorkingPivot.editMode = true"
"WorkingPivot.setTM p.transform"
"WorkingPivot.UseMode = true"

So I assume it would be possible to get the transform and rotation from the workingpivot somehow and put them in the objects "local" pivot instead.
Now perhaps it was wrong of me to use the word "local pivot". I mean of course the objects pivot in world space. Or something.

I tried doing something like this:

WorkingPivot.EditMode = True
p = WorkingPivot.getTM()
WorkingPivot.EditMode = False
WorkingPivot.UseMode = False
$.pivot.transform: p

But it didn't work.
