Here’s a small LScript, which simply allows you to add FiberFX to your layout menus.
If you use FiberFX often like I do, it can come in handy. It’s much faster to have FiberFX attached to a button than to have to Ctrl+F8, drop down the menu, select FiberFilter then double click. This script does that, and when FiberFX is added to the scene, it opens the FiberFX panel with the button. I find it to be a convenient time saver and I have added it to my Workflow tab in Layout where I have all my most used tools collected.
It’s not much to say about the usage, just add the command to a convenient spot in your layout menu and you are ready to go.
To assign it to a button go to the Configure Menus window -> Command List -> Plug-ins -> JS_OpenFFX, and assign it to a tab where it makes sense for you.
That’s about it. Hope some of you find this tool useful.
