Send To Rumba Send To Rumba

Creates an asset file (.rumbanode) containing the selected group in the scene (or the first one if there is no selection) then opens a new Rumba scene referencing the asset file. Ideal to test your export.

Export To Rumba Export To Rumba

Creates an asset file (.rumbanode) containing the selected group in the scene (or the first one if there is no selection) in the scene.

  • Default Rumba Manipulators :
    Select any controller of the rig then click on “Default Rumba Manipulators” to create a basic manipulator setup.
  • Translate and Rotate :
    Creates a manipulator with default settings for the selected controller
  • No Translation :
    Creates a manipulator with only rotation properties for the selected controller
  • Translate in View Plane :
    Creates a manipulator with only translation properties set to moving along the view plan for the selected controller
  • Translate XY Object :
    Creates a manipulator with only translation properties set to moving along the object’s XY local plane for the selected controller
  • Translate Horizontal World :
    Creates a manipulator with only translation properties set to moving along the world’s X axis for the selected controller
  • No Rotation :
    Creates a manipulator with only translation properties for the selected controller
  • Rotate Ball :
    Creates a manipulator with only rotation properties set to ball type for the selected controller
  • Rotate X Axis Object :
    Creates a manipulator with only rotation properties set to rotating around the object’s X axis for the selected controller
  • Float Attribute :
    Creates a Float Manipulator for the selected controller. The controller needs to have an extra attribute of type float. If more than one such attribute is found, you will be prompted to select wich attribute to associate.
  • Condition attribute :
    N/A
  • Create Arm Manipulator :
    Creates an Arm Manipulator. It needs a selection. See Arm Manipulator for how to set it.
