Free & Helpful VFX Tools and Scripts

We roll our own tools.

When off-the-shelf tools reach their limits, we just make our own. And some of those home grown MuseTools are so useful, that we're excited to share them with the world.

Automation is key.

We hate tedious tasks. So we have automated large parts of our pipeline. Although we can't share everything, we think you will find some of our snippets useful.

The Redshift Camera Extractor reads the metadata of a Redshift render and converts the camera transform matrix into Euler angles that can be used in a Camera3D. The package also includes a Camera3D default file that is pre-configured with the correct expressions stored in the S6 preset. Place RsCameraExtactor.fuse in your Fuses folder and Camera3D_Camera 3D.setting in your defaults folder. To use it, plug the output of RsCameraExtractor into the ImageInput of a Camera3D.
