Blenrig and hats

Does anyone know how to get a hat rigged using Blenrig? I can’t seem to get it working. The hat is using the armature modifier, but no matter what I do, nothing will control the hat. I’ve tried weight painting directly to the Hat_mstr and Hat_free controllers; I’ve tried creating a new bone for the hat (the bone will move the hat, but again the controllers won’t move the bone!). Thoughts??

I think you’re supposed to make a separate rig for the hat, then parent that to the hat controller with a bone parent.

Have you tried “Bone” parenting the hat to the head bone?
