hey there Rafael,

"can i rig a dog with biped?"
are you talking about using Character Studio?

Yes you can rig a 4 legged character with CS:

Turn on the figure mode, use the structure pull down menu to set the skeleton structure.

To change the model/shape of the Biped, in the MODIFY tab, right click on the biped, select "convert to editable poly".. from there you reshape the limbs and body all you want.

ta bom?
hope this helps, i haven't used Max for a while.
good luck

yes you can but i don't think CS is the best way to go, since its spline is FK based and with 4 legged charcters an spline IK is probably a better option.

but again if the dog diesn't do much and there are a lot of midshots and cu then you can get alot dome with CS rig which will be very quick to setup.
