Unhide those Controllers!!
Was doing a bouncing ball for the warm up, so had all the keys in and the timing laid, was abt to do a playblast. When my brain had a delusion that i had a script or knew a shortcut to hide n unhide the controllers on the characters. Looked for it but not a script of that sort on the Shelf so Opened the Hotkey Editor n went through all the shortcuts. Nothing here either. I thought what the heck,...
