Description:

>> NOTE: IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO USE THIS CHARACTER RIG FOR ANIMATIONS.

>> USE THE NEW FANCY FEET RIG: http://bit.ly/MinecraftRig

This was the rig I used for animation in "One More Fright", a minecraft parody:

This rig is being uploaded by popular demand. The rig and model is being released as CC-0, so you are free to use or manipulate as you like. You do not have to give credit, but if you want to you could state: "Character model and rigging by Patrick W. Crawford, TheDuckCow". You may not however imply that you are the original creator of these models.

==============

This is minecraft rig with a specialized "fancy feet rig", where the foot automatically rocks on a level surface defined by the rotation of the according foot IK target. While rocking is normally easy to accomplish with humanoid rigs, the desired effect in this minecraft cartoon character is to have the rotation of the foot be the same as the rotation of the lower leg while still having IK control.

Video explaining my approach and how it is accomplished:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFnWssjx6_4

>> The rig contains at least one set of constraints that are not purely world-space or purely local space; the end point is the rig behaves undesirably when pointed 90

ยบ off the Z axis from the rest position: the feet "slips upwards". This is easily seen by rotation the BodyCenter.MAIN bone; the demo animation also highlights where this happens.

Moo-Ack!~Patrick W. Crawford

    If you wanted to move the fingers individually, it's just a matter of deleting those constraints mentioned in the demo video

    The rig is setup to work with both forward kinematics (FK) and inverse kinematics (IK) for the arms, which is convenient for animation. On the arm, select the yellow bone and under the constraints panel you can change the influence of the IK control (0 turns it off, allowing you to move the arms "like normal")

    In the zip file you download, there is a texture folder in the same directory as the blend file (blendswap generated another folder called textures when I uploaded it, so yes that one is empty, the other is not). If it doesn't render with the skin texture, then try going under the materials and then texture panel and hit refresh/reloading the texture.

    Sorry, but what do you mean? If you want to use it for animations, you first need to delete the demo animation; hover your mouse over the top-left window it opens to (the dope sheet), hit a to select everything and then x to delete.

    It could be that you moved the blend file out of it's original folder, as the textures are located in the same location. Try rendering it from there, and if you want to move the file elsewhere either "pack" the blend file inside of blender, or copy/move the texture folder and blend file together. You might need to "refresh" the textures, under the texture's tab where it indicates which image is linked.

    By nature of the CC0 license, you may do whatever you want with the contents of the blend file :)

    I think that explain it very well.

    Why does it say?: It looks like this blend is too big for your monthly bandwidth right now, you will have to try later. When I get 200GB of monthly bandwidth a month

    You can go to the "dope sheet", hit a to select everything and then x to delete all keyframes; but, I would actually recommend one of my newer rigs on my profile and not this "fancy feet" one :)
