Inspired 3D Advanced Rigging and Deformations
Learn the same techniques, technology, and approaches used to create advanced character setups such as skin and muscle deformation and intuitive animation controls just like those used in big-budget Hollywood films. This book skillfully addresses advanced techniques for character rigging and deforming without regard to a particular software package, which should increase readership by including users of all digital effects programs. This book is a great companion/follow-up to "Inspired 3D Character Setup" (1-931841-51-9), which introduces the concepts of this craft. "Inspired 3D Advanced Rigging and Deformations" takes this difficult and sought-after skill and provides deeper explanations and techniques.
