As some people have seen on this forum (python & plugins section), Meltingman from http://www.blenderclan.org and I, have started two month ago a big project called : Universal Biped Armature For Every One.
At the beginning, I was alone for this WIP. I thought it will really cool to have a full usefull rigged armature for Blender (like Character Studio for Max). So we studied ManCandy and Ludwig to create our own armature…
I put my own constraints : no ‘ACTION’ constraint and using of ‘PROXY OBJECT’ system to control the armature. We want this ‘universal biped armature’ look like a Character Studio (3DSMax) one but … for Blender of course !
Here is our last release : version 0.6 - http://www.b1project.com/files/17/Armature_K.blend
(we have to finish the neck and the head system)
Here is the french thread of this WIP : http://blenderclan.tuxfamily.org/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=10349&forum=5
Note : We are looking for some one for a python script, if you wants to know what we are looking for, please check the ‘python & plugins’ section of this forum.
Enjoy it and see you soon for the next release.
