Handy Hands Plugin

Hi all,

I've been working for a while on a plugin for animating characters hands. I've got a super simple v1 pretty much ready to go and hope to take it to market soon.

Here's my initial promo vid:
 
Hopefully you'll get a good idea of features from the video. It's got some customisability, and the hand rigs have a good range of pose-ability (without overcomplication). I see it being useful when you've got a simple character that needs to make specific hand gestures in a video, or just want to quickly add a bit of movement where there would otherwise be static hands.

It's not without it's limitations. Currently it only supports that flat filled style and can't rotate on the X axis (no pointing towards the camera). I'm potentially hoping to add more features like these to the plugin later, or come up with a v2 which will have more features.

I'd love to know if anyone has any thoughts on what they'd pay for a plugin like this, plus if there are any deal-breaking features that they'd prefer to see before purchase.
