My current biped rig (different approach to feet)

Greetings everyone,

I thought that I would post a recent rig that I’ve been working on. It has a different approach for setting up a foot. The feet are constrained to empties that are children (via vertex parent to three vertices) of a circular foot plane. This allows you to rotate and move the feet by moving and rotating their corresponding planes.

Here is the rig: http://www.primatestudios.com/temp/rig.blend

I like it. I will check it out more later but it looks promising.

Hey there Woodman5k,

Thanks for looking at it! :smiley: That’s great, please let me know what you think of it.

Gabio sent me over to look at it and it is wild. Where is your mesh?

hi,
the rig looks great as did your previous cat-rig i saw last week.
seems too complex and is slow on my machine (i have ATI :-(.

good work

It slows down for me when I grab the foot panels. But I really like the movements of the arms and legs.

dipingo: Hey there thank you very much! :smiley: The model isn’t finished yet, I still need to extract a displacement map from a higher poly version and finish weighting it.

Woodman5k and ajuss: Thanks a lot, I am really glad to hear that you like it! :smiley: It runs fine on my machine but I really didn’t intend for it to be used real-time. My goal was to make a rig that deformed a fairly high poly mesh and give nice muscle deformation as with the cat rig I posted.

Thanks again for all of your kind comments!
