First of all, thank you for these tutorials Phil, they are incredible!I am having a hard time creating a manipulator for the new multi-cut tool in Maya 2016, and was wondering if you had any tips to create this same effect with the updated tool set? Thank you for your time, and I look forward to future videos!

vipin meshram says:

wow amazing tut pal you are a savior for me  thanks keep em coming  

Pedro Nogueira says:

awesome! Thanks for sharing! I was about to ask how to “parent” the cut manipulator into a locator or some other object but then I remembered the connection editor and connected the position and scale of the cut input to a locator. This should be easier to grab and animate specially when scenes get big and complicated
