COURSE PREREQUISITES: Introduction to Rigging, Intermediate Modeling ZBrush Intro
Intermediate Rigging
This course teaches body rigging. Students build on the basic concepts and learn more complete full body rigging. Rigging controls like forward/inverse kinematics, twisting, and world/local constraints are added for ease of use during posing. Then shapes and customizations are applied to refine deformations. Student learn about multiplier attributes, lattices, wrap, nonlinear, and wire deformers, beginning Python scripting, ribbons, follicles, pose-space deformers, stretchy limbs, and gimbal avoidance.

Students learn how to make great deformations and build corrective shapes for characters. Students learn the aesthetics of body shapes.

Program Students can use their own character models from Intermediate Modeling to create a fully functional rig, and portfolio piece. Students without an approved modeled character may use one provided by AnimSchool.
