So during my facial rigging research for the Roller Derby Rig I found this gem by Paul Neale. It’s an absolutely fantastic reference for the basics of facial rigging, and what’s more he goes step by step through the process of developing a basic tool for quickly slapping in controls! Unfortunately it’s all in max … More Upcoming projects: Face Control tool and RaspberryBox 2PIr

I’ve also switched from using maya.cmds to pymel.core. I still don’t have a good grasp on using pymel in a pythonic way, but even just using it in place of the … More Automated Rigging Module – Progress at 26/10/2016

Okay, so firstly it’d be more accurate to call it “Automated and Procedural Rigging Module” since the intention is that it could be used to automatically generate a rig based on user-defined settings OR procedurally generate a rig or individual components of a rig. Secondly, where do I even begin? So, I had already created … More Automated Rigging Module – Progress at 20/10/2016

Automated Rigging Module – Project Overview

Purpose of this project: The purpose of this project is to write a module that will automatically build a rig for any quadruped or biped. The module will also be usable as a rigging toolkit for testing any advanced rigging techniques not directly supported by the module. Rigs created with this module should be useful … More Automated Rigging Module – Project Overview
