I'd like to share a little pluggin I've been developing over the past year or so in between jobs. I call it The Grow Rig System, and it's basically a simple auto rigger with a character mesh already attached. Sort of a combination of a rigging tool and a modeling tool.
Here's a demo video:http://www.kylevargas.net/growrig/demo/grow_rig_demo.html
It's a very simple tool, definitely a work in progress. I've certainly seen more advanced rig builders out there, but I feel the ideas my system centers around are very strong.
There are many features I have in mind to add to this system but I must admit my scripting and rigging skills are limited. Any feedback would be a great help, but what I'm really hoping for are any riggers and scripters who would be up for working with me to improve and add to it.
Here's where to download the files:http://kylevargas.net/growrig/beta.html
So, if you're interested in any capacity whatsoever, feel free to use it, test it, let me know what you think. And again, if you're interested in working on it with me I'd love to hear from you.
