Tutorial - Maya - Tentacle Rig Setup using Python


I've just created the first tutorial of a series of exactly 3-minute long videos that will show how to use Python to create a tentacle rig.

I want to keep the videos short and succinct, basing each one on a single aspect that will lead to the ultimate creation of the rig. The first deals with creating a bone structure, using Python to rename the joints based of a number of string variables, that will be the base for the following tutorial and continue onward.

It would be great if you guys could take a look and give me any feedback you have and tell me if it can be followed.


Many Thanks,
