Computer Animation IV, Rig, Maya 2014
Receiving this project I was a little confused but excited. This was by far the most difficult project I’ve had here at Alfred State College.
This project was difficult as it was something I’ve never done before. Although I had a book to guide me along there was many difficult aspects to rigging a character. One aspect in particular was the skinning. There are many ways to skin a character and I had difficulty with each one. Then after skinning you have to paint weights which was just as difficult as skinning.
Although this project was difficult, I learned a lot about what Maya can do and what I can do. I always worked with rigs that teachers gave us but never created one. The whole project was a learning experience and I learned a lot.
