Default I need some help

All I want to know is can I bind a skeleton after fully animating it or not? Also, I need to Model a T-Rex by Monday, does anyone know where there is either a tutorial or some good quality orthographic views of Dinosaurs, prefferably T-Rex's?

I think you could bind the skeleton after animation. Have you tried it?

You can bind the skeleton after or even during animation.

Default It's me again; sorry!!!

Okay, now I have another question; I have a spline Ik on the tail of the rig to my T-Rex. The problem is that when I select the Central Control to move the entire skeleton, the bones w/the spline are selected but they don't move. Can you help? I'm posting too many threads am I? You guys R really helpful; I don't even bother going to other sites for help anymore.

Can you post the Maya scene file for us to check out? It'll be easier to troubleshoot the actual rig.
