Session Name: Technical Artist Bootcamp: Zen in the Art of Rigging
Speaker(s): Brian Venisky
Company Name(s): Avalanche Studios
Track / Format: Visual Arts
Overview: Rigging is a daunting task that few love, many loathe, and most avoid. For those that do it, some do it by necessity while others truly enjoy it. Regardless of position or skill level though, your approach to rigging and all that it involves is different than the next person. This includes tasks as basic as how you place joints or more advanced ones such as how you calculate mathematical expressions. However, it is not hard for anyone of any level to ignore or forget key concepts and practices that allow for creation of the best possible rigs. There are also many techniques that books, teachers, and tutorials don't tell you when you're learning how to rig that could forever go unlearned. This talk will help you focus on better planning of your rigs as well give you essential tips and tricks to building great rigs.
