In this course, we will cover the tools and techniques for setting up character rigs in 3ds Max. Step by step, we'll construct a control rig that is robust and animator-friendly. We'll learn everything from proper bone placement and techniques for troubleshooting, to learning fun ways we can preserve volume as our mesh deforms and how to make our controls efficient and easy to comprehend. We'll also learn how to create customized quad menus and toolbars that will help speed up our workflow, so we can focus primarily on building our control rigs with the best practices. Software required: 3ds Max 2010.

Throughout this training course, step by step will contract a control rate that is robust. An animator friendly will learn everything from proper twin placement and techniques for even building an enhanced spine rig. Learning fun ways We can preserve volume as our mesto forms and how to make our controls efficient and easily comprehensible. We'll also learn how to create custom quad menus and toolbars for quick access to specific tools that will help us to speed up our work flow, bringing that time back into constructing our control rigs with the best methods.
