UPDATES

  1. Fixed some of the Mesh Deform errors

  2. Enabled IK Spine

  3. Fixed some minor parent heirarchy issues

  4. Turned some of the Subsurfs down, which made rendering crash on some machines.

Testers welcome! If you download this and animate with it, please let me know what sucks on it and I'll try to continue fixing errors.

RIG FEATURES

Squash and stretch IK/FK on the neck, tail, legs and spine.

Integrated IK splines on the necks, tail and spine.

Volume preservation on many things

Eye look/head follow

Probably much moreplay with it to find out!

The current Action is a walk cycle I made at Seabug. Enjoy!

CONTRIBUTORS

The desert scene on Layer 11 is from Potado, grabbed off of Blendswap.org. Blender 2.5′s metarig system was used for some instances, such as the spine and initial leg setup. Special thanks to Nathan Vegdahl, Campbell Barton and the Durian team for making that!

VOCABULARY

Cataphract–an armored Greek mount

Howdah–a half saddle, half gazebo apparatus that goes on elephants and similarly massive mounts.

Enjoy!
