View Full Version : Brad Noble - Rigging videos

01 January 2009, 01:18 PM
Just thought I'd let you know of some videos showing off some animation rigs I've made for personal and commercial works.

The first is a bone based facial animation rig I made a while ago as a test setup so I could compare any advantages it had to a traditional morph based setup.

The commercial works are a few rigs I made in 2008 for a couple of commercials for Australia and the UK.

Here are the links:

Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Thanks Luis and Erik.

I should mention that Luis gave me some great examples on how to push the flexibility of the face on the mouse. He showed me a facial setup he'd worked on ( that used the full mouth control (seen at about 3:15 in my mouse video) and the 3 eyelid controls for each lid (seen at about the 2 minute mark).

Excellent work as always Brad!

Especially the Sensibles worm and the rountree mouse! Your animation of the Sensibles guy is adorable btw haha

Couple of questions..
1. on the mouse face rig, was that created using bones or morphs?
2. On the sensibles rig, you used the FFDs to squish the mesh into the ground plane, but how difficult would it be to add in some bulging outwards as the mesh touches the floor?

Keep up the great work! I'm looking forward to your next rig release too!
