Instead of going back in the timeline, wouldn't it be great if you could hit a button on a gui that would automatically set the keyframe for you.
I'm more concerned with the commands for going back in time and setting the keys.
Thanks a bunch!
just use autokey and in the prefs tell it to key all attributes instead of modified attributes.
remember u can simply mmb drag in the timeline while keeping a current frame, then simple press s or wiht suto key on with the right settings, just nudge the model; move rotate etc just slightly.
but mmb dragging the timeline is really faster and use auto key.
very simple imo.
no need for a mel here.
using your example of turning a heaed:
at frame 1 the head is at 0 but a 100 u want to turn the head to the right,
set your initial keyframe at frame 1 for ry to be 0, then just mmb drag to frame 99 and press s [or if u have autokey on, just nudge the head very slightly] then @ frame 100 just key the head turning. fast
