Katana Bebop is a collection of tools forged from the pains of production. These tools are designed with one goal in mind, to increase the user experience in Katana. The range of users inside of Katana is quite large, as it spans from artists to engineers. Katana Bebop was designed for all disciplines, including tools to help bridge the gap between artists and engineers to help streamline the production process.
The Script Manager at its core is designed to act as a bridge between developers and artist. Allowing developers to not have to worry about user interfaces, and get back to what they do best.
Simple Tools is designed to provide greater accessibility to Katana’s advanced node creation plugin called Super Tools. It is essentially a Super Tool designed for creating Super Tools.
Node Graph Pins
Node Graph Pins allows users to store a reference to any node or parameter in a tab. These references provide easy access points for nodes/parameters so that users don’t have to dig around in their templates looking for their nodes.
The current user interface for GSV’s in Katana looks like an engineer closed their eyes, slapped it into the interface, and called it a day. The GSV Manager is designed to be a convenience function to help users manage their GSVs.
