3ds max bendy stretchy autorig?

I have to rig a cartoon character for a client. I have never had use for bendy stretchy limbs but this is a requirement now. Searching shows a ton of rigging solutions for Maya but almost nothing for Max. I tried out the stretch squash with cat but you cant turn that on or off and there is no bend. I found this one: https://vimeo.com/86945798 which is almost exactly what I need but looks like it is not a rigging solution.

Ideally I am searching for a solution for Max 2015 with pose library, copy paste mirrored animation and face capabilities. Dont want much do I ? Anyhow any recommendations gladly received.

Cheers

Brad Noble's Skeleton rig is pretty old now but it's got loads of features. You have to pay for the resizing script but it's only 50 Aus dollars... http://www.bradnoble.net/rigging/skeleton_rig.html

I've also heard good things about the ludo rig - http://cg-animation.com/en/rig-eng.html

Thanks for the info Duncs. Looks like the second option isnt for sale yet. It must be difficult to develop an autorig for max.

Ok testing out the Brad Noble rig results in missing dlls, they are in the right place but they are compatible up to 2013. After 5 years of development and only receiving 10 bucks Brad stopped development, and who could blame him.

The Ludorig looks perfect but it is only available for testing a set character so we cant use it yet. Will keep an eye on its development. I am totally amazed that 3dsmax has no rig available for cartoon characters. Seems you can build your own rig via commercial tutorials but I am no rig builder. I wonder what the reason is.

Nonetheless big thanks for the info.
Cheers

Hi Kanga,

The LudoRig is available for purchase for 99,00 . I bought it and liked using it in the few tests I've done playing around with it, but haven't had much opportunity to use it in production yet.

Here's a link to the store page:
