What are ShadeIt 2.0 and Cable 2.2 and why are they useful for Maya users?




ShadeIt 2.0 and Cable 2.2 are two scripts created by Romain Chauliac (Wizix), a French freelance CG artist who specializes in hard surface modeling and texturing.


ShadeIt 2.0 is a script that helps you create and edit realtime shaders for Maya viewport 2.0. It allows you to quickly assign materials, textures, and lights to your objects and see the results in real time. You can also adjust the parameters of the shaders, such as color, roughness, metalness, normal, emission, etc., with a simple and intuitive interface.


Cable 2.2 is a script that helps you easily create and edit cables in Maya. It allows you to draw curves and automatically generate cables along them with various options, such as thickness, resolution, twist, bend, taper, etc. You can also edit the cables after creation, such as adding or removing segments, changing the shape or direction, or applying deformers.


Both scripts are useful for Maya users who want to create realistic and detailed models and scenes in a fast and efficient way. They can save you a lot of time and effort by simplifying the process of shading and cabling your objects. They can also help you achieve better results by providing you with high-quality shaders and cables that are compatible with Maya viewport 2.0 and Arnold renderer.


How to use ShadeIt 2.0 to create and edit realtime shaders for Maya viewport 2.0?




To use ShadeIt 2.0, you need to have Maya 2018 or higher installed on your computer. You also need to have an internet connection to activate the script.


After purchasing the script from Gumroad, you will receive a zip file containing the ShadeIt folder and a readme file. You need to extract the ShadeIt folder to your Maya scripts folder (usually located at C:\Users\YourName\Documents\maya\scripts).


Then, you need to open Maya and run the following command in the script editor:


import ShadeIt ShadeIt.run()


This will launch the ShadeIt interface, which consists of three main parts: the shader list, the shader editor, and the light editor.


The shader list shows all the shaders that are available in ShadeIt. You can browse through them by category (such as metal, plastic, wood, etc.) or by name. You can also search for a specific shader by typing its name in the search box.


To assign a shader to an object, you need to select the object in the viewport and then double-click on the shader in the list. This will apply the shader to the object and show its parameters in the shader editor.


The shader editor allows you to modify the parameters of the shader, such as color, roughness, metalness, normal, emission, etc. You can use sliders, color pickers, texture browsers, or numeric inputs to adjust the values. You can also use presets to quickly change the look of the shader.


The light editor allows you to add and edit lights in your scene. You can choose from different types of lights (such as point, directional, spot, area, etc.) and adjust their parameters (such as color, intensity, decay, angle, etc.). You can also use presets to quickly set up different lighting scenarios.


What are some examples of shaders that can be created with ShadeIt 2.0?




ShadeIt 2.0 offers a wide range of shaders that can be used for various purposes and styles. Here are some examples of shaders that can be created with ShadeIt 2.0:



Shader

How to use Cable 2.2 to easily create and edit cables in Maya?




To use Cable 2.2, you need to have Maya 2018 or higher installed on your computer. You also need to have an internet connection to activate the script.


After purchasing the script from Gumroad, you will receive a zip file containing the Cable folder and a readme file. You need to extract the Cable folder to your Maya scripts folder (usually located at C:\Users\YourName\Documents\maya\scripts).


Then, you need to open Maya and run the following command in the script editor:


import Cable Cable.run()


This will launch the Cable interface, which consists of two main parts: the cable list and the cable editor.


The cable list shows all the cables that are created in your scene. You can select, delete, duplicate, or hide them from the list. You can also create new cables by clicking on the "Create" button.


The cable editor allows you to draw curves and automatically generate cables along them with various options. You can use different modes to draw curves, such as freehand, linear, arc, or spline. You can also snap the curves to objects, grids, or points in your scene.


After drawing a curve, you can adjust the options of the cable, such as thickness, resolution, twist, bend, taper, etc. You can use sliders or numeric inputs to change the values. You can also use presets to quickly apply different styles of cables.


You can also edit the cables after creation, such as adding or removing segments, changing the shape or direction, or applying deformers. You can use the "Edit" button to enter the edit mode, where you can manipulate the curve points and handles. You can also use the "Deform" button to enter the deform mode, where you can apply different types of deformers, such as bend, twist, flare, wave, etc.


What are some examples of cables that can be created with Cable 2.2?




Cable 2.2 offers a lot of possibilities for creating cables that can be used for various purposes and styles. Here are some examples of cables that can be created with Cable 2.2:



Cable
