CGMA - Rigging for GamesRigging for Games


Rigging for Games : An 8-week course focused on developing game-ready rigs in Maya

Develop realistic rigs ready for gaming

This course is all about creating robust engine agnostic rigs. We will tackle thinking in components, as well as the possibilities of scripting to improve and automate workflow. We will also focus on the ability to reverse engineer existing rigs and being able to debug/anticipate problems.


LECTURE TYPE: Pre-recorded

FEEDBACK: Individual recordings

DURATION: 8 weeks

MATERIALS: Autodesk Maya

SKILLS LEVEL: Intermediate

PREREQUISITES: A basic understanding of rigging and scripting will help but is not necessary; basic knowledge of Maya is expected.


The more you know, the better.
