I’ve downloaded the 2.56 version and it seems that the human meta rig that was in 2.53 no longer present in when I add armature…single bone is the only options.
Did I miss something? did they throw out meta-rig? and if not how can I add it in 2.56 version?
Thank u in advance
File / User Preferences / Addons, enable the Rigify addon.
Do a search on these forums for more info on the Rigify addon.
I have a similar problem. Using a marvelous book by John Blain, I saw that he had a wide choice of metarigs (in 2.54) which I had NOT in 2.56a. I havz 2 choices all-right: single bone or the human meta-rig. So I went on the search. My rigidify-addon WAS enabled. I have seen addons enabled that did not work than afyter they were disabled and rfe-enabled (Dynamic Spacebar Menu). So I tried the same with the rigidify. After doing that it seemed impossible to re-enable and indeed I was left with only ONE choice: single bone ! I am not qualified to explain how all this works but each time I start a new Blender-session I find my TWO choices back. I suppose eyal will them too…
I did a bit of exploration because I would well appreciate putting this wealth of meta-rigs that I do find on my computer in Windows Explorer , in my Blender-menu. But some error that I am unable to resolve is shown in the following compilations of screenshots:
