' COMMENT: Well after years of rigging characters by hand and spending a lot of time
on setup , started to write some scripts for rigging characters automatically
, and this is the final resault of them (after writing 3 or 4 before this !)
This script goes step by step and the only job you have is just set your
bone positions at first step and just guid it on times it needs settings in
This rigging is based on "Alias Hyper Real Body Setup" training kit.
The second section is manual section for adding things that are not in the
I must say that I have used some ready MELs from highend3d.com and some from
other people , so for making your job easy I gathered all of them in this
script. Just take a look at the manual section and you'll find some known ones
like "Rivet" , "Volum Wire" , "Control Circle Creator" , "Stretchy IK" ,
"Piston Rigging" and "Bone On Curve".
Remember that this script is for rigging Biped character and quadruped ,
bird , and insect characters will be the next job.
