Pushing Your Character Rigs Beyond the Basics in 3ds Max

Pushing Your Character Rigs Beyond


Pushing Your Character Rigs Beyond : In this series of lessons we will learn how to push our character rigs beyond the basics in 3ds Max. We’ll start by learning how to build a modular system, with advanced twisting and volume capabilities that will be inserted throughout the rig to improve deformations. We’ll then learn how to create our very own cage deformer to hold volume and form in geometry that is challenging to skin. We’ll also learn neat topics like how to setup auto clavicle and advanced shoulder systems, animator-friendly hand rigs with multiple levels of control, and learn how 3ds Max can be customized so that we can work faster.By the end of this tutorial, you will have the knowledge you need to produce promising results from your character rigs in 3ds Max.
