"Install rig" plugin

Recommended Posts

I just noticed the install rig plugin but it doesn't seem to do anything and I can't find any reference to it in the forum. Do I have to have bones setup in the model prior to running the plugin?

I think... it has something to do with the "Squetch" rig

Yes,

From what I recall, Hash Inc created the Install Rig plugin to facilitate installing the Squetch Rig into TWO characters.

It automates part of the process.

 

I think Mark and David were heavily involved with it on our end. Ken and Holmes may also have some knowledge of what is being automated behind the scenes.

There should be a whole history of the development of the plugin in the TWO and Squetch Rig topic areas.

If you work through Mark's rigging tutorials that'll clue you in.

 

This'll set you up with the context:

Edit: David provides the good stuff in the next post.

The InstallRig plugin is used when installing the Squetch Rig and the 2008 Rig (unless that has changed in the 2008 Rig), but you can make your own installation rig that uses the plugin if you'd like. I made a tutorial on how to make an installation rig that you can get here.

 

The plugin re-parents bones according to the naming of the "INSTALL" bones, then hides all of the bones except ones with "geom" in their name.

 

Hope that helps, John.

Robert, Rodney and David: Thanks guys that helps a lot. I tend to use the setup machine because it's easy, but I have a fair bit of customisation floating around so the idea that I can create my own installrig is intriguing....
