New Free Maya Script: Automatic Project Path Setter

After getting tired of manually setting project paths for files that were already open, I made a simple script that does exactly that and then prompts you to reopen the file so assets from relative paths load correctly:

The script assumes that you are using the standard project/scenes format, with the currently open file in the /scenes/ folder. There are some scripts out there can monitor your Maya session and do this automatically but I personally hate scripts that do stuff for me with added polling. Maya is a fickle beast, so the last thing I need is another thing adding potential instability. So, grab it here lest ye waste more time by doing it manually.

If you want the script shown in the video that opens your active project images folder, grab that here.
