Hi all,

Im studing facial rig controled by a totally customized interface, and I think its a good reason to post here again.

So...the idea is to make the animation easier in order to even a 2D animator with no experience get a good job. And for all 3D animator to animate in a very simple way, taking away the boring and complicated part like helpers, bones, sliders, morphers... All the features will be in the same place.

To do a good animation you jut have to understand the interface (totally intuitive), the timeline (the same in every animation software) and the curve editor.

To build this program I hid the max tools and created a friendly interface, reduced to maximum the controllers point and increased to maximum the expression possibilities. I didnt finish the rig yet, I saw some limitations regarding exaggerated expresions, but Im trying to fix it.

Well, Ill show you...its better

I did a video with the interface and the rig in action. Download here! (

Its divx compressed.

PS: The model I used is our dear Z, modeled by Patrick ( ( for "porteiro Z" ( (

Thanks for your help. When I fix the rig Ill send you

Well, thats all. It was a very hard work but I think is on the way to become a tool to improve the production.

Please, send me feedbacks, with critics and suggestions. Ill love it. And if you have doubts dont hesitate... ask me.
