Making an Installation Rig - David Simmons

Recommended Posts

David Simmons has once again contributed a tutorial delving deep into the art of rigging, constraints and 'squetching'. In this tutorial he even demonstrates how to build an installation rig for use with Hash Inc's new plugin for that purpose. Definitely something to check out and add to your toolbox!

Important Information

A:M v10 and v11T will require DLL files for he rig installation plugin:

http://www.animationmaster.com/amtutes/tut...n_dll_files.zip (4KB .ZIP)

 

This information from David:

(The Tutorial) is compressed using the H.264 codec* and is approximately 23 minutes long. In it, I show how to make an installation rig that uses Noel's installation plugin as well as a cursory example of how the squetch is achieved in the Squetch Rig...I thought it would help to show why using the plugin makes things easier.

 

Note that Noel's plugin works and has been tested with v11.0t, v11.1i, v12 and v13 (I haven't tried it in anything older).

 

For v11.0 and v11.1, the plugin needs two DLL files that are part of "v12stuff.exe". The necessary DLLs (See Zip file below) are "msvcp71.dll" and "msvcr71.dll" and should be put into the v11 or v11.1 folder on your harddrive). Noel's plugin goes in the "HXT" folder.

 

*Viewing will require Quicktime v7 or compatible viewer.

 

David... what did I miss? ;)

I've removed the .MOV file and will replace it with a version optimized for streaming.

For downloading select the ZIP file.

 

A big thanks to David (and Noel!) for this functionality and information!

I think you covered all the bases, Rodney! Thanks for your help! Also, thanks to Mark Strohbehn for reviewing the material for me.

 

Oh, in case someone isn't familiar with the plugin, it's located here.
