So now that we have our Robots modeled it is time to rig them. Rigging is the inner skeleton of the model that we will create. This skeleton is what will drive the geometry and move it when we finally animated the character. Rigging is extremely technical, but if you have the patience, it is a process that can give you a lot of power when setting up your animations. Most animators skip rigging, but it is vital to 3D Animation, and knowing about it will improve the way you animate as well. I explain the simplest forms of rigging so you can get your feet wet. There is something very enjoyable about giving your character the ability to move through the various tools Maya has to offer.

Genre: eLearning | Project Files Included

In this set of tutorials we will help you become comfortable with Maya's powerful Expression Editor, all so that you can automate functionality that would otherwise be cumbersome to animate by hand. We'll start the course by learning how an expression can be used to automatically rotate a wheel. We'll then learn how to create an expression that will automate the rotation of gears, and to conclude the course, we will learn how to set up a dynamic pivoting system, all with the help of an expression and a few nodes. By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge needed to automate with expressions for your projects.

SOuP is a node based toolkit for Maya artists allowing greater flexibility and a powerful procedural workflow. In this tutorial I discuss the ability to animate UVs using Maya fluids. In fact any Maya deformer will give you the same power. With only 2 SOuP nodes we can create a simple pipeline that gives us access to UVs as vertex points. From here we can deform them directly or create soft bodies and affect them with fields and fluids.
