Hey guys.

I was wondering if there are plugins for rigging and other character setup in xsi like there are for maya...

for example...

1-auto rigging....please tell me there is a system for make automatic rigs with all fk/ik systems like this ones:

http://www.anzovin.com/TSM2Maya/

2- a plugin like the BCS (blendshape combination system), similar to the system that was used for gollum

3-Muscular system like "cMuscleSyetm" by M. Comet

I don't know about any existing plugins, but you can make your own Automatic Rigging plugin and implement any features you see useful using our Automatic Rigging DVD (http://3dquakers1.com/webroot5/download.php?det=29), due out soon.

About facial rigging, I am working on a new system but cannot disclose any details at the moment.

thanks a lot Charbel, the Automatic Rigging DVD looks fantastic:thumbsup:, can you explain please how an automatic rig is build?,...i mean, i imagin that it involves a lot of scripting, but you said that it don`t require any program skills...but it does involves as you said the making of scripts....

-i don`t know anything about making scripts in xsi, do i have to learn first all about scripts before taking your DVD?

-do you plan to sale the plugin for automatic rigging?..or maybe it comes with the dvd?

There will be a big section of introduction to scripting, for those who have never touched the script editor before, to the point and with lots of examples.
After that you can dive right into the actual building of the guide, the rig and then the extras.
I am adding more and more functions that speed up the animation workflow, like mirroring poses and Fk/IK snapping back and forth.

The scripts will be distibuted with the DVD, so you can start building character right away and learn at your ease.

This same automatic concept will apply to Facial Rigging later on.
