Ramp up your creation workflow with a professional scene creation and navigation plugin!

Quickly find commands using fuzzy search

For example, if you want to open the clothing tab, open the fuzzy search and start typing "cloth" and you'll see a list of commands that match your query.

More than 200 commands out of the box

From camera navigation to opening panels, adding and removing atoms, opening the performance monitor, you should find what you're looking for. If not, reach out!

Native integration with Timeline

35 Timeline commands are available, from copy pasting frames to navigating your animations

Compatible with third party plugins

Keybindings was built to allow easy integration with plugins, so your favorite plugins can take advantage of global shortcuts.

Support for analog joysticks

Some commands can be bound to joysticks, such as moving atoms, scrubbing Timeline animations, etc.

Create scene commands

You can create your own commands in your scenes using a conventions-based approach. For example, you could create a "Selector.SelectPose#1" command, and in each scene specify a trigger to call.

Define complex bindings, or keep it simple

You can make it simple and bind keys to things you often use, map ctrl, alt and shift combinations to different bindings, or go crazy and make vim-like sequences such as "gc" to open the clothing tab and "gm" to open the morphs tab, etc.

Additional features

Some special features are only available through Keybindings, such as the selection history which allows you to go backwards in your previous selections, the ability to create atoms of any type, and the intelligent action mapping which will run your command on whatever was last select that supports this command. A very good example of that is Timeline's Next Keyframe command. Even if you select the hand controller or a light, the Next Keyframe command will still work on the last person atom you had selected.

Requirements and instructions

You need Virt-A-Mate 1.20.77.2 or more recent to take advantage of Keybindings. While earlier versions will work, Virt-A-Mate bindings cannot be overwritten so a lot of keys won't be usable.

Credits

Warm thanks to @lfe who made the excellent KeyboardShortcuts plugin, @hazmhox who shared his overlay implementation, @MacGruber for always being a pioneer in everything VaM and everyone who gave feedback and helped shape this project and upcoming ones!

Why another shortcuts plugin instead of using LFE's?

I wanted to make something that could target any instance of Timeline in any scenes, using a binding mechanism that would make it easy to extend in plugins. I also wanted fuzzy search and vim-like bindings, and while the implementation of KeyboardShortcuts is excellent, the basic premise of it didn't allow what I wanted. LFE was very kind and we exchanged ideas but it became clear that the best path forward for me was another project altogether.

I finally tried it, and I must say I wasn't expecting so much possibilities! The ability to add specific atoms in one shortcut is awesome. And quickly navigate through tabs. And cloning *_*
Amazing work; I expect a big productivity boost once I get used to my own shortcuts! This is instant "Session plugin preset > Change user default" ;)
Simply necessary! Should absolutely be part of VaM 2.0 release.
You had me at "vim-like sequences"... Great work.
Thanks for the Plug! This helped speed up my work! ;))
Dat's right! I break yo stuff!

I'm just skimming the surface of what's possible but the FindCommand command is amazing. Very intuitive, if you think it should be possible, it probably is with this plugin. Great work as always.
Fantastic job! The fuzzy find is incredibly useful, and I love that other plugins can integrate to this.
This is like the Mercedes-Benz version of LFE's superb KeyboardShortcuts - it provides a wealth of much-needed customization options and support for user workflow to VaM 1.x's sparse user-interface. The many clever design choices are a treat, not to mention the 'hidden' features facilitating third-party plugin interfacing! Already an indispensible tool for Desktop-mode, added VR-controller support (if possible) would take it to the next level, particularly in combination with JayJayWon's UIAssist. One should hope that MeshedVR will integrate this gem into VaM's 2.0 version.
Top quality plugin, can no longer live without it.
move and rotate, I did not get my Blender precise control, but this is night and day difference. Well done!
