View Full Version : Rigging Books and DVDs

There are so many out there. In your opinion, which is the best? (any skill level)
I'm looking for something that's not specific to a certain version of Maya, but rather something that contains information that can be applied universally. What's everyone's take on the Hyper Real DVD series?

the cgtoolkit art of rigging books are pretty dope. i have the advanced rigging and deformations book too and its pretty good. the cgtoolkit books come with dvds that run you through what they discuss in the book so if your a visual learner, this is where you need to be.

I second the greatness of the cgtoolkit books. The included DVDs are great. They even go through their MEL scripts and explain what each line is doing.

there's tons of stuff out there... been at least 4 or 5 posts here on the subject where a list of books/reference and dvd's have all been posted. Just search this forum for "rigging books" and you'll find the info.
