I never made an extra blog post for my prAttractNode. So since I just uploaded an update and also made a better demo video with more useful work examples (Read Vimeo description for explanation), I think it is a good time.
The plug-in is open source (download link in Vimeo description), so the following Maya API parts might be useful to others:
- How/Where to properly initialize a ramp attribute
- How to setup everything in a single .py/.mll file, for easy installation
- (C++) OpenMP usage (Extra blogpost: https://pazrot3d.blogspot.com/2012/01/openmp-and-maya-api.html )
