There are so many rigging systems for Maya already, what makes this one any different ?

  1. VFX/Games production ready, yet clean and simple.
  2. Very fast. For comparison - full featured FRW rig is on par or faster than HumanIK in its most basic form.
  3. Simple and (because of that) scalable codebase.
    Basic MEL commands only - create/parent/rename nodes and create/set/connect attributes. No OOP, interdependencies,
    C++ API calls, external libraries, plug-ins.
video tutorial - basic workflow and tools
video tutorial - custom OpenGL controls

Tai Komatsu has designed a blackbody shading tool in python for Maya fluids. If you dont know, blackbody shading is all about calculating color from temperature values, so now you dont have to try and guess these values yourself - its all done for you! Follow the download link to Tai\'s Github page where you\'ll find all the information you need to get started. Happy fluids!
