ifVisible

Function

This script is designed to be used as an itemFilter for the lsThroughFilter MEL command. It filters the input list to return only those objects which are currently Visible. Heirarchal visibility is computed -- if a node's parent is not visible, it won't be either.

Usage

First, prepare the itemFilter. You only have to do this once per Maya session.

itemFilter -byScript ifVisible ifVisible;

You may then use the filter with the lsThroughFilter MEL command:

lsThroughFilter ifVisible;

See Maya's documentation on itemFilters for more information.
