Maya BonusTools - Create Audio Wave Node

By Steven Roselle - 7 Dec, 2015 - Maya

I've been sitting on this one for a while and for some reason I just forgot to post it.  Better late than never.  Way back in 2011 a Maya user named Anthony Castaneda (sp?) posted a cool little tutorial and example of how the Audio Wave Node utility in BonusTools can be used to drive objects and attributes in Maya with a sound file.

I've been working with the audioWave tools for a while now, about six months. Here's a more robust example of what you can do with it (that I made): [url=https://vimeo.com/148239687]AudioWave fun on Vimeo[/url]
