I know my presence around here has been spotty as of late. I have been trying to eek out an existance doing freelance work and haven’t had that much time to be a presence at the forums here.
I figure with the latest version of c4d out and everyone moving towards using mocca 2 I thought i would post a freebie preactice rig using hard ik in C4D.
I have been a large proponent of pose based hard ik systems and there further development in the c4d community. Seeing as the Maya, LW, and XSI communities all have freebie rigs you can screw with i thought I would post something for our community.
I call him PracticeMan. It is a hard ik based system showing the hierarchical setup that i have developed over the last 2 years. is based on the Stray CAT system. This rig is for practice only and has no setup function. i am only posting it as a study for folks who want to get a better feel for what an industry standard rig would feel like.
It is very light and the solvers are setup to update very quickly in the viewport. It should give most folks with a decent system realtime feedback in the editor ( with the HN object turned off will be much faster).
Well enough babbling,
ladies and gentlemen I present to you,
