Ribbon IK… my version with rivet – no hair plug-in required

ribbonIK sample
After watching Fahrenheit Digital’s DVD, “Rigging for Feature Animation by Aaron Holly”(a great DVD by the way…), I was possessed by Beelzebub to write a version that doesn’t use follicles. Why? Because most of us don’t have Maya Unlimited. And some of us riggers need to help each other out.

But also it was a great chance for me to try out my new “code protection.” It’s basically a flash EXE that holds all the code and provides a quick GUI for use. This way I can write MEL and I cand distribute it. It can also be limited to IP addresses, MAC addresses, and password protected so any utility can be used at a studio, but not outside the studio.

Download the “Geordies_Ribbon_IKver2.exe” for testing in my MEL Scripts section. Any feedback is welcomed. The next version, will create a button on the shelf so it only has to go through the “install” with the Maya commandPort one time.
