Description

Establishes and configures the current manipulator within the 3D views.

The manipulator commands provide a flexible array of options for modifying object properties within the 3D views. For example, by using the options -posTrack and -orientTrack, you may establish the manipulator at the center of a group of objects. Subsequent modifications using the manipulator in these cases will take that location as the origin, modifying all members of the selection to together in the same local coordinate system.

Examples

select LFWT LMWT LBWT RFWT RMWT RBWT; 
manipulator -rotManip on;
manipulator -orientTrack on -posTrack on;
// These commands select all members of a character's waist,
// and prep the manipulator's center of rotation to always
// remain in the middle of the selected group, enabling
// you to rotate the markers as a unit about their center.
// Changing the selection will not change the rotation manipulator,
// allowing you to rotate other markers about the average of the
// waist markers.
