Free! PluralSight Maya rigging course

We’ve partnered with leading online training website PluralSight to offer an in-depth video course on rigging. In this tutorial, Rigging Human IK Characters for Mocap in Maya and MotionBuilder 2016, you will be using both Maya and MotionBuilder 2016 to rig a human character using HumanIK controls. 

After discovering how to complete the initial rigging, you will learn how to apply motion-capture data, and you’ll also learn how to begin testing and refining the character’s rigging and weight mapping. After viewing this course, you will have a solid understanding of rigging using Autodesk HumanIK controls, and you will be able to apply motion-capture data easily to your own rigged characters.
