Green ticks

This is an incredibly simple thing, but something I use almost everyday. The code will set a key and make the tick in your timeline green instead of red.

setKeyframe; keyframe -time `currentTime -q` -tds 1;

I find it great for two things:
– Making my keys (or golden poses) green, so I can easily differentiate between keys and breakdowns.

– It’s also great when you’re past the blocking stage and want to either clean up or re-do parts of your animation. I’ve posted an example below.

To change back to red you can just individually key the frames again and they will automatically switch. Otherwise using this script should change all the ticks on the selected item back to red.

keyframe -tds 0;
