1. Here is a demo for how to use Maya's Viewport 2.0 to get better animation playback speed. Maya 2015 Service Pack 4 was used for this demo. "Jack" rig used courtesy of AnimSquad.

    My system specs:
    CPU: Intel i7 4790k (4.0ghz Quad-Core)
    GPU: NVIDIA GTX 780ti (3gb Memory)

    MEL Playback code:
    int $rangeStartFrame = `playbackOptions -q -min`;

    currentTime -e $rangeStartFrame;
    playbackOptions -playbackSpeed 0 -loop "once" -by 1;
    playButtonForward;
    playbackOptions -playbackSpeed 1 -loop "continuous";

    Python Skin Cluster Code:
    import maya.cmds as cmds

    sceneGeo = cmds.ls(g=True)
    charSC = []

    for skin in cmds.listConnections(sceneGeo ,type='skinCluster'):
    if skin not in charSC:
    charSC.append(skin)

    for sc in charSC:
    cmds.setAttr((sc + '.deformUserNormals'), False)

    A fast and easy way to copy attributes from one object to several others.
    Works for any channel in the channel box! :)

    First select all the objects you want to copy Attributes TO, then shift-select the object you want to copy Attributes FROM.

    Then select an Attribute and HIT TAB, repeat.

    Enjoy! :)
