Rig Studio is a modular rigging system for Maya. This tool was made for easy and fast character rigging and has a wide possibility of extensibility and customization.

General Usage Instructions

To build a rig for your character you need to import geometry in a clear scene and run Rig Studio.

Then you need to choose what you want to create a rig from a template or build it from scratch.

If you want to use a template, just select it from the list and a full rig will be built in the scene. Then you need only to correct modules positions and match to geometry.

If you want to build a full rig from scratch, then you have the huge freedom to build your rig using needed modules and even create your own custom modules and integrate them into the system.

After building, you have an active rig ability to change the position and propositions of every module at any time, even in animation. 

After building a rig, apply skin geometry to it and add any deformations as you want. Rig Studio is a clean system and allows you to add any custom deformations easily. You can also correct some modules easily and make adjustments.
