Character Rigging, Animation Setup (01:56:59)
In this special, character oriented, modo training video, we're looking into modo's extensive character animation setup tools! We are going to learn how we can quickly and easily setup a human character for animation, with a controlled IK (inverse kinematics) setup, getting the basics down in under one hour! We will further learn how to paint weight maps to control the quality of deformations and how to easily setup controllers for morph target driven facial animation. With all that, you get 15 scene file setups showing every single step from start to finish. Get ready to bring your characters to life and move towards creating your dream animation projects!
