Hybrid Rigging - Robot Volume 02

Building a full IK rig is a complicated process if you're new to rigging. This tutorial blends together several rigging techniques to create a feature rich rig, using HumanIK to do the heavy lifting. On top of this we create custom controls, letting you get the best of both worlds. We also cover dynamic wires with nHair.
