Hello all. I've just finished programming Walker.

Below is a selection of movies that cover the usage and features of walker.

Walker scales to fit any biped character. You can use any character rig but it is advisable to use AutoRig v.2 with it because the setup time is greatly reduced compared to when using custom rigs. Autorig v.2 is included when you purchase Walker.
You can purchase Walker from our website at:

Congratulations on the release!
So, if I purchase "walker" I can get my hands on the updated autorigger already? How do previous autorigger purchasers get our 50% discount?

Check your email that you used to buy autorig.

Hmmm...didn't receive anything and checked my spam box too. No worries, I'll just wait for the messiah upgrade and do my stuff in Maya in the meantime.

Peace....

Truly impressive

Is this only for walking?

And can/will this be possible for multi legged characters?



great stuff as always, Vegard

It's for cycled motion with footsteps, so I think walking is the primary target there. Though, some clever alternate usages might appear over time (eg. some kind of performance transfer between characters which includes walking could be possible but it's not ideal for that).

Multi legged characters can probably be supported, but not immediately.

Hi Vegard,
I downloaded the discounted Walker and when I try to extract the files I get a message saying that the zip file is a non-valid file. I have e-mailed you regarding this. Can you look into that please?
Many Thanks,
Francois

Hey, just redownload the file. It must have broken during transfer since it works for other people. Maybe use a download manager so you can check that it's the full file that has been transferred and that no error occured.
