In this Maya tutorial, you will learn techniques for reusing control rigs in Maya to work more efficiently. Throughout the tutorial you will learn techniques for re-purposing rigs to save time in your character setup pipeline. We’ll start by merging a completed rig into our character’s scene. At that point, we will start modifying the rig to match the proportions of our character. Moving on from there, we will then add controls that are necessary to accommodate any new accessories that require controls. We’ll also learn techniques for rigging hair and belts, and use Mel scripts, to help us to cut time on repetitive tasks. By the end of this tutorial, you’ll learn how to reuse your own rigged assets, to, in the end, be more productive to your team.
