Sorry for the delay in release, I’m real busy with my job currently. The status of the quadro – Need to refine UI and more tools need to be added for usablility. Core part has been done, as soon as I get some time, I’ll be able to work on it, may be in couple of weeks, so stay tune, its matter of few days.
All the core coding has been done now ! need to connect the user interface built in Qt, also decided to make another set of limbs which aims to build three bone’s limbs – what we human have, this is for those animals who has it, like bears, if you see bear’s rear legs are just similar to we humans apart from all other quadruped animals who has four bones to manipulate. So eventually it can be used to build biped characters as well. I tested this tool on biped, and it worked really well without any kind of hick-ups, only I took help from old biped script to build the limbs, after building another set of limbs, I think I’ll fit to work on any animals, humans. As far as birds are concern, still I’m in RnD phase to fit its wings more flexible and extremely handy to pose in all the manner.
Ohh.. did I say Bird too !!
Below is the few snapshots of the quadruped progress done !
whoo..!! got some time to create a brand new auto rig. a-a-a-aaa.. but, this time it is for quadruped characters. Building complete code in Python. I’m not using any pf my previous MEL scripts, everything is going to build from scratch ! I maintaining to keep all the features from biped
tool, even adding few more, to make it more modular. I think it should work on biped character to according to my assumption – but, lets see what it actually does.
And yes, as I said no MEL used, so I’ll be using pretty cool Qt GUI builder for this. I’m really impressed with it, its got a charm ! Currently, coding torso has been done, and building UI for torso too..! And same thing, every part is set-upped broken for more control and independent rigging. posted progress with the snapshot of GUI designed in Qt.
RAE V 1.4 (1513) is the sample file for the new upcoming auto rig for quadrupeds.
