ICreatedthisgizmotospeedupmycompworkduring TERMINATORGENISYSatMPC; Thetooluses position/refposition passes and normals (optional), to select an alpha. The selection works along axis and not by using just a point like P_tools or similar gizmos do.By using this tool is really straightforward to perform very precise selections on your CG.Besides, If you decide to use normals, the selection becomes even more precise by giving you an amazing response on your CG bump details.I have used this nice tool on my comps to manage the colors on very tiny parts of the CG robot.

The main tab include 15 effective presets, so the user won't spend too much time on building a new one from scratch and will learn how the construction process works.Gianluca Dentici has used this tool on “Fantastic Beasts and where to find them” and “Assassin’s Creed”
