Digital Tutors Animating Quadrupeds in 3ds Max

Duration 1h 44m | Video: AVC (.mp4) 1280?720 15fps | Audio: AAC 48KHz 2ch | 1.06 GB
Genre: Video training




In this series of tutorials we will learn how to rig quadrupeds in 3ds Max. We'll start by learning how to design a Flexi system for spines and necks that is modular and animator-friendly. We'll then build our creature's skeleton from the ground, up, and learn how the Flexi rig can be easily inserted to save us a lot of time.

We'll learn time-saving skinning techniques, and we'll also learn how custom muscles can be used to
maintain volume as our creature's deform. By the end of this training, you will have the skill set
needed to rig your own quadrupeds with confidence.
