Hey guys

This is version 0.1 of my hand rig.

The goal is to have an easier to use hand rig for picking up objects

Why?

cause I suck at animating, and can never get those fingers to work right

This is experimental only, Feel free to use, edit and re-post

I do appreciate being credited for my work, but this is not required

Bones:

most of the bones function as normal, however there is a few extra bones.

All the bones you move are on layer 1, all extra bones on layer 2

palm.04.L -> moves a lot of bones, works to 'cup' the hand

roll.*.L -> these bones control the finger curl

curl.fix.*.L -> these bones help to clasp the fingers a little tighter

ik.*.L -> these bones give finer control over the fingers, effectively 'pointing' the fingers

shrinkwrap.L -> controls how much the fingers are attracted to the object specified in the constraints of the ik bones

In the future I will add features for using physics rather than shrinkwrap

Also want to add a panel to control it, as well as a script to build it into the current rigify generator.

Let me know if you have any suggestions on my facebook page facebook.com/cgtutorials/ or my website www.metalix.co.nz

Enjoy the rig :D
