I feel like I was highjacking someone else’s question regarding rigging, so here’s my post on the subject.
I trying to rig Gromit, (Aardman fame) - I’m having a few issues as I’m pretty new to rigging. I thought this would have been a good starting project after playing with bipeds a little.
I’m only really concerned with rigging him for basics, like a walk cycle etc. I don’t intend for him to be on two legs as I imagine I’ll have to do a different rig for that and probably adjust the topology.
I have the rig sorted for the eyes (not in the file) and I’m assuming that the other deforming bones should work well enough, especially when I’ve IK’d the tail and ears.
It’s the legs I’m having issues with, The IK on the front leg seems to be coming along grand, in my blend I still have to sort the Pole Targets. The rear legs seem to be going a bit nuts when I pose them, it only takes a slight movement and they’re all over the place. I thought I should see what the issue is with them first before I finish the Pole Targets.
Any help would be appreciated, and suggestions in user friendly speak if I’m on the right track with everything else
