With Softimage ICE, you can visually program your own custom tools to rig and deform your characters.
I have made a series of free video introductions showing the workflow.
Even if you dont have Softimage, this is the way that everything is or will be going, so I think you might find it interesting.

Many thanks for putting these up, Paul! Great stuff!
Is there I way to direct-download the vids for offline access?

Cheers!

If you register on Vimeo you will be able to download the videos from there (there's a link to direct download them).

Thanks for sharing this, Paul :buttrock:

You're welcome.

Aaron Kent has started doing a few too. I'm hoping more people will join and make it a share-fest. I'd love to learn more myself.

Thanks a lot, Iker! :)

Again, great vids, Paul! I have been putting getting into ICE off for too long now and your tutorials gave me just the right kick in the butt. I am hoping you'll do a similar tut on your muscle-deformer work!

Cheers!

Big thank pooby, this is greatly appreciated!
I'm currently making my way through ICE and absolutely love the concept.
It's sad that there's so little technical animation related ICE tutorials.
The introduction of ICE kinematics in 2011 introduce a new way of rigging in a much better and object-oriented way than any 3d package can offer at the moment. It's too much fun to mess around with it.
So thank's again, that just made my day! :beer:

You're welcome.

I think as time goes on, more ICE rigging tutorials will come out, Its still a pretty new concept to most of us to begin getting our heads around.
For me XSI's rigging is superb anyway, so I currently only use ICE KINE to invent the odd new constraint or specific joint effect or something.

Amen to that! And here's a "Maya-damaged" person commenting. lol

Looking forward to more from you, Paul!
