The text, imagery, and instructive video tutorials provide detailed overviews of the practices and procedures, which make asset development more production and user friendly. Learn several ways in which key control setups may be built to achieve the same or similar goals, offering varying degrees of user control, based on a variety of options. Develop a strong understanding of Maya’s rigging tools and the diverse ways in which they work together to build the better animation rig.
