This script improves the workflow of making creases on smoothed polygon objects.

I wrote this script because I found Maya’s default workflow for creating creases a bit tedious. With this script you can directly enter a value. You can quickly apply the same value to other components. Interactive editing is still available with the slider. The window and slider can be resized. It supports creasing of polygon edges and vertices.
