In this post I am publishing a study of an auto-rigging script I have made a while ago. The goal of this study was to create a tool that could quicly set up a rig with my preference of features. This script sets up a rig with IK/FK arms (with blending based in Paul Neale setup), IK legs and reverse feet from a given reference. I didn’t go futher than that because the point was just to study some scripting at that moment.
If you want to try this script anyway, a reference of bones will be needed. Anything can be used as reference. In the following video you will see a very simple chain of bones, a Max Biped and a Max CAT being converted to my set up. Just for the record, the idea of converting an existing Biped reference into a custom rig was taken from Daniel Lara.
What it does:
- from a given reference, it sets up a rig with features of my choice
How to use:
- create your reference and run the script
- MAXScript -> Run Script -> rigMachine_v02.ms
- map the bones
- if you want to use a CAT reference, please create a dummy at the end of the toe and link it as child of the toe
