Parented Puppet Pins

This script takes all, or specifically selected, puppet pins on single layer (across multiple meshes if necessary) and creates a null controller at each pin. This allows control of the mesh through the null objects, which can be parented to each other and to other objects.

When using this script, it is important to rename the null objects uniquely once they are created, to avoid name clashes when running the script on a different layer. It is also helpful to parent (either directly or indirectly) the null objects to the layer the mesh is on, in case the mesh layer was to be moved. This is my first script, and therefore comments and criticisms are more than welcome. Please direct them to
