Use createSkelScript to output a Shogun Post script that may later be used to reproduce the exact replica of a skeletal setup, VST, or VSK.

The command analyzes the bone indicated and all of its descendants. Passing the "root" joint will reproduce the entire skeleton, passing another of the skeleton's bones will reproduce a subset of the skeleton. All of the values of the attributes of the skeleton's bones will be retained.

The skeleton can either be created inside of Shogun Post or imported into Shogun Post from an external source. The functionality of this command can also be executed via the Subject Setup panel.

Use the -solver flag when you want to include marker association and solvers into the script.
