Non–self-installing Script-based Custom Commands
Custom commands are commands that you create to augment the native Softimage commands. You can assign custom commands to menus, toolbar buttons, keys, and use them inside scripts.
It is strongly recommended that you create self-installing custom commands. See Custom Commands [SDK Guide].
This section describes the older method of creating non–self-installing custom commands.
