Why do KeyHydra was born :

2 Years ago I developed a tool for myself that helped me to boost my workflow, reduced my stress, and removed pain in my neck and arms.

During crunchtime I tracked my mouse movement and noticed that i was doing 2.5 km per day of mouse movement inside the UI of Max ... The keyboard shortcut solution of max out of the box wasn't ideal so i was also using my entire keyboard ... That's why i suffered from neck, arms, and shoulders [too much movement in a day].

Once the prototype was good. I hired a dev called Vladimir wich worked on such great tools as Lbrush for Maya, Shave and haircuts, and Particule Flow.

He was in charge of providing a good UI, that will allow me to iterate faster.


Introducing myself with a couple of words :

I’m Massimo founder at “Onikanabo.com”. I’m a technical artist since 2003, I had the chance to work on great IP like : Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Redsteel 2, I Am Alive, Need for Speed, and my heart go to Trackmania, and Shootmania. I’m currently freelancer for Ubisoft Nadeo.

Introducing Onikanabo :

As Autodesk is focusing on feature. Our goal here, will be to improve User experience only.

What's next ?

If you’re interested than please register on our website [with a real mail] or just feel free to come back here every time I will update this thread.

Next stop if you’re still there should maybe be www.onikanabo.com

Some great designers helped me to create the marketing [They do work for Don't Nod, Sony, and of course Ubisoft]. There is at least a few eye candy things to see : logo, 3d models, etc … Everything is not yet available.

From now I will add content every week here as I want Polycount to be the first to use this. 

I learned so much here, from all that great community.


Sincerely.

Massimo from Onikanabo.

    Hi Perna,

    Thanks for your answer. You're right ! In fact KeyHydra could Handle far way more than this.

    I limitate it. As i think 1920 is already a lot. And as the best feature of KeyHydra is the "Function Editor" wich require no coding skills.

    We'll be able to update a fonction easier thanks to the "Function Editor".

    KeyHydra is not yet in V1, future is bright and improvements are infinite. 

    With a such great community lot of things will move in the good directions. And if maybe for you 3200 is still not enough you could love the future of Keyhydra.

    Thrust me.

    Good news guys. I have made a system that supports more than 9000 commands per key, and I will sell it to the highest bidder. It uses a revolutionary new system running on an Apache server.

  • Cathodeus

    @perna

    Apache approach is technical backend … I think that people don’t care about Backend. [technical way that things are done]. People do care about what it can offer to them, and here we have some really good stuff, as Keyhydra do have a beautifull user friendly Frontend or in other term User Interface.

    Why people would like to know that with Apache we can interface with some REST API when we send the HTTP request to the server and get response with JSON/XML data. Who do understand that kind of things ??? Ok some people maybe but no that much. However stuff should be cashed because some latency can appear due to web communication … Database is usefull if it's running in the web, that way some profile can be shared by multiple user. But people will have to learn it ...  In this case the server should be hosted and some admin maintenance will be required constantly. :s

    I didn't took that approach because :

    Our approach is User Centric, we want people to do what they want. Because all users are different and do not have the same workflow.

    People will learn to KeyHydra how do they want to interact with it. That will not be the contrary.

    Onikanabo mean tenfolding the power of an Oni [Strong Japanese Creature]. I think that all Keyhydra’s users are some strong Oni. And Keyhydra will be there to tenfold what they already are.

    KeyHydra is developped since 2 years now with a team.

    As i told earlier : the most important things that really matter to our company --> Is end user and UI experience. And we do have some really good stuff there.


    I'm pretty sure you can offer some really good stuff, but as it's not related to Keyhydra, can you create another topic [If you still want to sell your tool of course] but if you want to discuss you're really welcome.

    @S1DK The tool is not yet available, but ready, next week i will publish a sneak peek. Currently i wanted to start talking about it with people. if you're intrested you can come back here or register to onikanabo.com

    I will post more within a few days.

    Hi -

    It seems like a lot of work wend into whatever this tool is, but after reading the introduction post I honestly don't understand what it is or what it does. And this is coming from someone relying heavily on workflow optimisations, which of course includes heavy use of keyboard shortcuts. 

    If I am not mistaken the main point is:
    1 - Possibility to execute 1920 different tools with just  one single keyboard key. This is what we call a Smart Function.

    Isn't that ... well ... a bit of a stretch ? I honestly don't understand what you mean by that, and presenting the main feature of your tool by making sound automagically mysterious is probably not going to convince production-oriented people to try it, especially if no practical examples are provided.

    So my question would be : how would you explain the concept of your tool in a few words ? No buzzwords allowed.

    (Also, Geronimo was quite the badass)

    [edit : first post has now been clarified, so this post can be ignored now ]

    @Pior
    Thanks you made a good point. With words it's not easy to understand. i'll try in one long sentence :
    Currently one keyboard Key can execute one action inside pretty much all apps. Than if you Press a modifier key like ctrl, shift, or alt while maintaining that key the action executed become something else. But with this approach we’re stuck to 8 actions. While with actual version of KeyHydra it become 1920 on the same keyboard key.

     

    Actually This is what can be done inside max [with a bit of maxscript] :

    1. Key press
    2. Ctrl + Key
    3. Alt + Key
    4. Shift + Key
    5. Shift + Ctrl + Key
    6. Shift + Alt + Key
    7. Ctrl + Alt + Key
    8. Shift + Ctrl + Alt + Key

    = 8 Actions on one Keyboard Key

    With actual version of Keyhydra it’s extended to 1920 action on one key. [And as per said it can already be multiplied by 6 easily]. 1920 is already a good start.

    For modeling pupose I just use 1 key and it do all the thing I need : Extrude, bridge, cap, connect, etc … etc …

    Yes I understand the concept of modifiers keys, and I am also a user of context sensitive hotkeys in programs that support them, whenever these are actually useful and appropriate.

    But "With actual version of Keyhydra it go to 1920 action on one key" still doesn't explain anything.

    Are you basically just saying that your tool is some kind of universal hotkey manager that enables context-sensitive hotkey support for Max and Maya ? If so that's great, but making the factoid that it supports a list of 1920 conditions per key your selling point is pretty much pointless, and this is exactly what the previous posters were getting at.

    Can you maybe say a bit more about which type of user you are targeting with this tool? Again, while this sounds great and all if you're going to price it at 500 bucks/license it's not going to make a big splash... You can get a full substance suite for something like 300 bucks these days, so several hundreds for a hotkey manager seems a bit steep if this is what you have in mind. Or have you considered different pricing schemes for different users maybe?
  • Cathodeus

    Cathodeus polycounter lvl 8
    @Mantikore We're targeting all users. Especially user that want to work in Expert mode [so without UI] or with smallest ui possible, and increase their performance, and speed while maintaining a good confort [more speed without more work, or more clicks]. Currently it will probably be for Techish Artist. [I mean by techish artis] artist that want to improve their workflow and are not afraid to do some really small efforts for it.

    As i was Technical Art director and lead artist for really different companies i know that some Artists don't want to push deep on technical things however V2.0 will include something for them that will smooth the learning curve to 0 learning efforts.

    The price of our app will be a total no brainer. If you're happy that some people do try to improve Keyboard shortcut, UI, and user experiences  inside 3d apps. Than it will be like paying me a beer to thanks our efforts.

    I'm currently working on the price and i think there will be 3 type of licenses :
    1. A free Trial version unlimited in time that will grant access to all current features. [Once user reach a limit of used feature it will stop working and print a message]. This limit is enough to know if you'll be happy to pay me a beer or if you prefer to uninstall KeyHydra. However having an Hydra as daily companion is definitly usefull especially if you fight angainst a lot of edges, polys, and vertices everyday.
    2. A cheap version [Beer price] that will be limited to current features. [V1.0 only + Bug fix for free]
    3. And finally a more expansive version that will grant you all upcoming versions, and some presents in order to thanks for bigger support --> There will be some really nice things i promise:smile::[So V1, V2, V3 and some more cool stuff --> will be explained in detail later].
    4. Large company will have to contact us directl:neutral:
    More detail soon. I'm currently finishing the EULA with my lawyer. Once done the trial version will be pushed and a payd open beta [with a discount for polycounters] will be reachable. --> Trial is free. But if you think KeyHydra is good for you than you'll be able to buy a cheap license and start to provide feedbacks and bug report. [Keyhydra never crash, it's stable but i can't really know what people will try to do with it --> Beta will help in this area]:smile:

    And voila thanks for the question

    I understand what you mean about latency and maintenance but my tool runs in the cloud, so updates are automatic and the lag is almost imperceptible. The real advantage is that you can bind literally all keyboard functionality to one key, but it doesn't even have to be a key. Using a simple Autohotkey script, I'm typing this message right now using the fifth button on my mouse. My computer no longer needs a keyboard if everyone uses my revolutionary software. This will reduce spending across the industry by millions of dollars (KPA * userbase * NASDAC ceiling / moderate inflation, depending on the cost of manufacture). The only problem is that I need to send the computer to DELL service when I need to change a BIOS setting but that happens VERY seldom. Please support my Kickstarter

    Neat! Does it currently allow to remap mouse action as well? As a lefty myself and suffering from chronic wrist pain I've been looking for a solution to orbit zoom and pan that doesn't require pressing any mouse button and all I have right now is autohotkey. Not ideal.

    Thanks a lot. Currently KeyHydra can allow to assign all the things available inside the customize menu of 3dsmax, so all plugins, and scripts exposed there can be assigned as well [For beta we're limiting some modifiers : Main UI, Editable Poly, Edit Poly, and Unwrap] --> We can easily open the door to all modifiers. Currently users can as well maxscript a case if needed. I don't think that mouse behaviour are exposed in the customize menu.

    For this kind of things i would recomend you a Mechanical Keyboard like Corsair, StrikeTE, etc ...

    Maybe it will be added in a future release who know the future ? But that will be a far future. As currently we're already cooking something cool for KeyHydra V 1.5 and ressources are not infinite.

    I add it to the roadmap. But please understand that i don't promsie anything as it's a bit out of scope for now. However if KeyHydra become a success it will be done.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, I don't understand why it's so hard to do in Max, but I figured it was a long time ago when I started poking around. So the simple fact that it's on someone's roadmap is already a small victory. Now regarding your suggestion I have a programmable mouse and keyboard - I tried to solve that problem long ago with both peripherals but didn't succeed, though I don't remember why. Maybe I should look into it again.

    Mantik0re, on a more serious note, have you tried using a tablet pen instead of mouse? That worked wonders for me when my wrist was acting up.
  • Mant1k0re

    Mant1k0re polycounter lvl 3
    Yeah I did, but I guess I didn't figure out how to make it work. You still need to simulate mouse buttons so I mapped them to the pen's buttons; and having to keep those pressed to orbit/zoom/pan creates new pain points rather quickly. I'm actually so desperate that I semi-seriously tested Voice Attack and other vocal command interfaces, but man does it get old fast screaming "BEVEL" and "CONNECT" every 3 seconds while you model :open_mouth:

    This is cool. I see it supports double tap shortcuts (like in Blender) which is very neat, AND you can make context-sensitive shortcuts based on sub-object selection AND number of elements selected, which is again, very nice. I would add these at the feature list as I'd buy it just for this reason. Context-sensitive tools are a huge time saver in modeling (at Editable Poly base object, context-sensitive modifier-based I would not use that much).

    The original post was quite confusing, I think you should re-word your feature list to be more exact and concise; and make a smaller, one minute feature video where you go over how easy it is to hit the same key to perform different commands, with day-to-day scenarios, in different modifiers, etc. And I would minimize the part about sharing, exporting, saving configs (you have three lines on that).

    As a non-scripter, I can't make something like this by myself, right now I heavily use the "Super smart create" script, maybe you can take inspiration from it's functionality to create a couple of demos, pre-made shortcuts.

    @huffer

    I agree with your feedbacks. Talking about keyhydra is really hard. As it's not a smart function but an editor. Polycounters do already helped me to find that KeyHydra is a "Context sensitive shortcuts editor".

    I will refine my com based on your imputs. Polycounter are the first testers. So all imput made will increase the communication arround the software before the launch day.

    Please don't minimize the importance of the export and  share function as we made some work there and i can't show everything right at this moment.
    But for exemple i will maybe organise something for people who want to share their "Keyhydra config" and "KeyHydra Context sensitive shortcuts". I do work for Nadeo after all and our leitmotiv is Create, Share and Play since 2003. So this state of mind helped me to develop KeyHydra.

    You will only have to load it and it's pretty fun !

    Ready made functions will come later inside what i call "Keyhydra Armor Pack" the dev is at 40 percent and it's already super strong.

    Cheers,

    It's definitely clearer what it can do, I'm not an expert in marketing, nor is english my first language, but I think you could still rephrase it a bit to sound more natural (...dramatically increase an artist's speed and comfort...create your own rules to have a single key execute up to 1920 actions...etc).

    I also think you can keep a smaller, more compact number of lines of features, since it will help new readers pick up faster what your tool is all about instead of being swarmed with information and losing interest (or being TROLLS)  (...bind a key to perform a different action based on active modifier, on sub-element type, and even number of sub-elements selected...etc). I had to skim to through 3 videos, at first, to find whether number of selected elements can influence a shortcuts behavior .

    And on the export functions, I'm saying you could just compact it into one line, like "Easily save and share keyboard shortcuts and user profiles across workstations and software versions". 

    But anway, I'm waiting to test it :D

    Hey Mant1kore,

    So you found the installer hahaha yes it's online somewhere. I didn't launched it officially yet [in fact the installer is online for beta testers, and partners --> i didn't expected someone will come back to the website without news from me].

    So currently you can just use the trial version, wich is enough to know if it's usefull or not. And i know it is but maybe some people will not want it.

    Official release is planned just after the hollidays. And i can already say that when i launch the V1 i'll be hable to show you what is planned for V2 as Vladimir did some great work in this direction.

    Also i worked hard on a 2 minutes advert, and hired a professional english actor for a beautrifull voice over without french accent.
    It's online too.

    Yes, I had it at the back of my mind for a while now - since I discovered Perna's famous Smart Create macro I've been fascinated with this concept, and even started teaching myself scripting in the hope of doing more in that vein. I did end up making up a few scripts of my own, like a hide/unhide/hide unselected key that works globally in Max, but I never really got to the level where I could do something like that smart create macro. Now thanks to KeyHydra it is within my grasp.

    I don't consider myself someone even remotely technical yet within a few minutes looking around in KeyHydra I understood most of its basic feature and could start creating a profile of my own. It's all very intuitive, the UI is easy on the eye, and it works pretty seamlessly for me on Max 2016 - haven't tried it on 2017 yet but I will test my profile on both releases once it's done. My goal is to create a layout that almost negates the need to use modifier keys and limiting the number of shortcut keys altogether whilst retaining most of the commands described by Perna in his old thread about "efficient shortcuts", which was the inspiration for me to streamline my workflow.

    I am looking forward to the release of V1, it's a day 1 get for me that's for sure. Let's hope the tool gains visibility. It is really empowering the average user like me and has serious health benefit. With only mapping a few keys and already eliminating a lot of alt and ctrl I can definitely feel the difference in comfort (and lingering pain at the end of a modeling session).

    Hi There,

    We are currently developing what i will call the 'learning interface' basically it will allow you to know wich action will be triggered by your keyboard key based on the current modeling or UV editing context. As learning 1920+ actions available on a single key is not super easy. This interface will help you to learn your shortcuts until you will not need it anymore.

    It will be available for free to all premium users.

    The free trial is available on the same page.

    Hello,

    Apologize for being away for so long, work has consumed all my time recently,but we're still working on KeyHydra and even if V2 is still not available to all of you we already started V3.

    We still need to polish small things before pushing V2 for purchase.But we're really close.

    We also changed and improved a couple of things.

    • Now the website is Protected By SSL [we care about user datas].
    • And Keyhydra will now be sold exclusively trough Gumroad. https://gumroad.com/onikanabo# 
    • Also there is now only one license Type with only one price now for Commercial and non commercial use [Simpler is better].
    • New updates will be free for all users.
    • I also hired an additional dev well known on this forum @Swordslayer [he is helping us to develop User Xperience]

    We expect a price increase of  20 % for V3 so if you like what we're doing, it's probably a good idea to buy it today as all our current users will receive free updates.

    Thanks to all of our current and upcoming clients.
    Massimo.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm happy to Unveil V2.0 main feature today.


    V2.0 is available to our current customers only, It will be public within a couple of days.

    What's new inside V2.0 :

    -The Learning interface : https://vimeo.com/215002168

    1. Press the learning interface key F1 by default can be moved if you prefer. This will open it.
    2. Than press any keyboard key with a Keyhydra function assigned on it and you will know which action is assigned to that key in context as well] This is the power of that interface --> It's context sensitive too.
    3. If we first press the key than you can press as well ctrl, or alt or any combo and bham --> Learning interface is populated with the action assigned [if it's blank it mean that case is still available for you].
    4. Some more videos are being made currently. 

    -Reactivity increased.

    -Support "Object" case --> Called "No Modifier" [We can now assign more actions on one single key if none modifier are active].

    -Possibility to change wait time for Multitap in MS [Available within Settings].

    -Possibility to Disable Keyhydra's Verbosity inside listener [Available within Settings].

    -If no multitap function are used than action is executed immediately now.

    -Lot of bug fix. [We worked a couple of months on it so i can't remember what exactly].

    I hope you will like it. And it's just a beginning. V3 is on his way and 2018 support too.

    Hi Polycount,

    i would like to introduce you "LazerCut" that we've been working on since a couple of time with Swordslayer.

    It's a boolean based tool, with super easy workflow. Hard surface artist will love it !

    It will be part of next Keyhydra release, as usuall free of charge for Keyhydra's clients. This tool will be working on Max 2017/2018 only !

    Please have a look at the GIF [Preview before release] :

    Manipulating Cutters : [Yes again] This time showing that the manipulate mode is not mandatory and you can also subtract some shapes fast



    Cutters can be snapped [For precision work]



    Cutters can cut with certain rules

    This must have been a crazy amount of work. Awesome stuff @Swordslayer . What do you do about triangles created by the new boolean ops?
