      vrn Normalifique

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      vrnNormalifique.mel - MEL Script
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      DESCRIPTION:

      The script will align (and lock) the vertex normals of the current selection to the normals of the selected faces. The effect is similar to Maya's weighted normals setting but the resulting normals will be "snapped" rather than just weighted.

      This allows for smoother shading on low poly hard surface materials that use bevels. This will also result in cleaner normal map bakes with less gradients which in turn will cause less normal map compression artifacts.

      For more details please consult the tutorial below.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      INSTALLATION:

      1. Copy the files into the script directory, usually:

      My Documents/maya/<version>/scripts

      2. Restart Maya or execute "rehash" in the Script Editor.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      USAGE:

      Call the function with either commands:

      vrnNormalifique(0);

      -will set the perimeter normals so that they snap to the current

      selected faces

      vrnNormalifique(1);

      -will set all the normals in the current selection to the average normal

      of the entire selection

      Bonus commands:

      vrnSoftEdge;

      -softens edges while keeping custom normals

      vrnCopyNormal;
      -copies the normal of the current selection

      vrnPasteNormal;

      -pastes the normal to the current selection
