Installs 2 buttons, one for rectangle style object selection and one for lasso style object selection.

persistent base install required

Installation:

  1. install the persistent base if not already installed

The script works by getting a list of all scene items and creating a temporary mesh using each objects center and bounding box corners. Point edit mode is started and a modified version of either the rectangle or lasso select tool is activated. When you make a selection the tool will end and the corresponding scene items will be selected.

Notes:

  • If an item is selected before starting the tool the corresponding vertices on the temporary mesh will be preselected.
  • The filters for mesh, lights and cameras must be set before running the tool.
