Command Recorder Addon

Finally! The Command Recorder Addon allows us to record macros in Blender. And not only that, we can save the macro’s to buttons. How convenient is that. For sure there are great use cases when extruding, scaling, bevelling, selecting etc. I would say that this is quite revolutionary.

How the Command Recorder Addon works

In big lines here an overview. There are two section in the addon. The first section is the Command Recorder. That is the place where you can define a name for your macro, and add steps. Also, you can record the steps or add steps manually one by one. Then, the next section is the Command Button. The Command Button is the section where you can save and load buttons. These buttons contain the macro’s you recorded before.

I watched the video from the developer and tried out the Command Recorder addon. There might be a few thing you might struggle upon, so that’s why I made this video below.

How to install the Addon?

You can download the Command Recorder on Github. Mind to rename the .zip file after downloading so that there is no dot in the filename. For exempla change into because otherwise you won’t see the addon in the preferences. Then in Blender go to Edit > Preferences > Addons > Install. Navigate to the .zip file and press Install. Save preferences and refresh. You will find the command recorder addon in the N-Panel.

    I have a release 2.8 version
    After installation, it is not in the list of add-ons.

      Hi Nikita,
      Is that a daily build, or the Official Blender 2.80? I believe there were some issues activating addons in a few builds a few weeks ago. I suppose that problem is solved. Otherwise, best is to contact developer of addon.

    The Command Button is empty.

      Hi Marcus,
      Thanks for reporting it. That might be useful for other users.
      If I have time to look at it I will come back to it. Another option for you is to contact the developer of the addon. There is quite a lot to do for me after holiday.
