In this series of Softimage tutorials, we will learn facial rigging techniques in Softimage. Throughout the tutorial we'll focus on providing animators with the control they need to create believable expressions with a control rig that computes fast. We'll creatively explore several techniques and tools that can be used to create natural deformations. We'll learn everything from how to simulate fleshy eyes to how to create and rig Shape Keys to automate specific deformations. We'll learn how to pin objects to a deforming surface, and we'll also become familiar several of Softimage's amazing rigging tools. By the end of this tutorial, you'll have the knowledge you need to create facial rigs that produce natural and entertaining results. Software required: Autodesk Softimage 2013.
