Maya Viewport 2.0 for Animators

How to use Maya’s Viewport 2.0 to get better animation playback speed. Maya 2015 Service Pack 4 was used for this demo.

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)
