Hi , I just wondering how to rigging a multi-legs monsters such as Spider .

I have 1 leg which already make a walk cycle.

Any way to mirror/or duplicate it with both of Skeleton / Ik and Animation clip ?

there are no tools available to do something of this nature. but it sounds like a perfect situation for writing yourself a spider leg rig setup script to do that repetitive task with the click of a button! :thumbsup:

Well, you could special duplicate as a copy and duplicate graph or input connections. But you'd be given a second ik for the leg, so you'd need to connect the joints together though.

I don't know how the animation would go, but I'd imagine it would duplicate it as well, I haven't tried with already animated stuff, only just rigged stuff, but I'd imagine so.
