View Full Version : Faceless Man - Help with Rigging + Animation

01 January 2009, 02:01 PM
Dear All,

I am currently taking my Masterís in Design and Iím doing my final project, a Running Man.
For this project I used two tutorials:
1. Freedom of Teach tutorial to build the Man: human anatomy - male.
2. Eva Wild tutorial for rigging and animation.

I am quite new to rigging and animation procedure and despite my efforts, I havenít been able to make the enveloping right for the legs. I tried to use the biped but it looked weird, you can look at it through this link: Itís an avi test render I did with the biped, enveloped with the running man. But since the result was so weird, I opted to build the whole skeleton body from scratch for the running man.

You can download the rar file, which is the running man model with the skeleton and some helpers added as well: (

From Eva Wild tutorials, it is good no doubt, however, I donít need so many features like helpers and constraints. Just need the guy run with his arms moving forward and backwards.

Appreciate if there is any professional or experienced user who is familiar with rigging and animation and could help me out please. All I need is to make the man run and with his arms moving. Thank you and appreciate who can really give me a hand here please.
