Been messing around with rigs in Maya.
Firstly I tried out the Morpheus rig which was fun to play around with but for some reason the skin wouldn't render... Two of my classmates (who are more experienced with Maya) tried to fix the problem but couldn't figure out what it was.
So I decided to stick to a rig I know and downloaded the Malcolm rig for Maya. With the help of this video I managed to install it correctly and everything seems to be working so far.
So far so good.
Now I just need to see if I can re colour him to be more mime-y.
And then learn to animate in Maya.
No, not difficult at all...
