General Usage Instructions

The key functionality of AdvancedSkeleton is to:
From a simple joint-chain (FitSkeleton), generate a complex motion system (AdvancedSkeleton)

We do recommend to install as SuperUser if you want the App to be available to all users - otherwise, the App will be installed for the running user. Windows only: To uninstall this plug-in, simply rerun the installer by downloading it again from Autodesk App Store, and select the 'Uninstall' button, or you can uninstall it from 'Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features' (Windows 7/8.1/10) or Add/Remove Programs, just as you would uninstall any other application from your system. The panel on the Plug-ins tab will not be removed until Maya is restarted. OSX: To uninstall this plug-in, simply delete the module directory from your system. The panel on the Plug-ins tab will not be removed until Maya is restarted.
