This rig was used for the production of "Mr. Herorbine's Singalong Tragedy", and was developed by Patrick W. Crawford (TheDuckCow).

THE WAY YOU SHOULD USE THIS RIG IS BY LINKING THE GROUP TO THE BLEND FILE YOU WANT TO USE IT IN (drivers may not be well-behaved if just imported)
This rig uses FK/IK switching controls. The bone "UIrigCont" to the (rig's) right has the control sliders to switch each limb between FK and IK; I typically animate using inverse kinematics for legs and forward kinematics for arms, so this is the default "rest" configuration, but you can of course change it on the fly as necessary.
The head is made to have independent rotation to the rest of the rig; this is a personal choice, as I think it allows to more easily make less rigid "keyframe-looking" animations - but if you want to re-enable rotation, select the neck bone, go to the single bone tab and select "inherent rotation".
The bones of the rig are spread over 3 primary bone layers with varying levels of detail. I general would start animating with only the first layer visible, then adding the others to make the finer tuned adjustments.
There is also a "color" driver control, this was a special control added specifically to this a a couple other characters in order to animate easily the texture saturation for an effect in the trilogy. Deleting it will not affect anything, and the driver can be removed on the panel for the image texture of the main character.
