Default kurt - You up for another tutorial addon

Kurt,

How about a rigging tutorial for the mech?

That way there would be a complete series: modeling, uv layout and texturing, and rigging.

That model is easy to rig. It has no pistons in it. It's like rigging any biped model.

This mech would be a better tutorial. It would have to cover aim constraints and pistons. I know how to parent the parts and even set up the aim constraints for the piston. But I don't know how to then set up IK handles so I can pose it by moving locators rather then moving each joint, which is tedious.

I have not purchased the texuting part of the mech tutorial yet. But I have to be honest, I would drop everything to get one good mech rigging tutorial!
