Hi there everyone.

Has anyone come across a decent insect rigging tutorial?
I'm trying to rig a small ladybird/beetle.

I've done some searching and no results as yet.

Thanks a lot

What difficulties did you run in ?

Wing movement ? Body deformation ? Folding Wings ?

Should be all fairly trivial with driven keys...just watch out for the motion blur to prevent straight blurs.

none of those problems - i dont have any "problems" as such - i was just after a nice tutorial on beginner's rigging for insects.

i have never rigged before you see.

Well you dont need a tutorial on an insect in particular, just find some info on rigging in general. Setting up a rig for an insect should not pose any big problems.

aye i guess you are right there.

ill just have to adapt the tutorials i have seen so far and concentrate on the legs in particular. no i need to find some stock footage of insect walks for reference... this should be fun :surprised

gettyimages.com look in the video section for insects walking, you should be able to find something there, they have the strangest yet usefull stuff there.
