Welcome to the world of Automation (Auto Rigging Junky)

Automated Multi Snakes Animation -By Subbu Addanki


We need to automate and animate multiple snakes initially planned for 200 snakes.
These snakes are magical snakes : They are flying in the air, jumping in to flames, crawling on the ground and then falling in to pit.

All these actions (animation) is achieved by automated multiple snakes animation

as_MultiSnakes & as_MultiPaths : Features
1. Automation of Multi Snakes Animation
2. Multi Snakes Crawling On Body
3. Multi Snakes Crawling On Floor
4. Automated Wave Motion For Snakes
5. Travel Along Motion Paths
6. Automated Multi Paths Creation On Ground and Body
7. Special Tools For Editing Snakes Animation
8. Automated  Attachment Of Snakes to Motion Paths
9. Multi Snaks Integration With as_EasySnake (Auto Snake Rigging)

Character Simulation With PhysX Ragdolls


Simulated Character With Physx Ragdolls.
All the results shown here are from direct simulation only.
Developed Auto Ragdoll Script for creating ragdoll setup and joint limitations for Character Simulation.
Limited the Ragdoll rotations as per human limitations.
Proper ragdoll Weighting has been given at appropriate areas like Hips, Chest and Wrist etc
Have tested falling characters for soldiers for Maghadheera movie.

Python Scripting : Auto Bird Rigging In Maya


Modular Rigging System: Auto Bird Rigging

This 'Module Rigging System' involves 6 individual scripts as detailed below

 eRig ( Maya Module ) 
Helps to reduce typing of coding up to 60% for main scripts like as_EasyBird
It consists 50 attrs like snapTo_Vtx, createCurv etc. It is module for maya programming.
You can watch one of the many functions of 'eRig' here: eRig_UnfreezeRotation

2. eCtrl ( Maya Module ) -- It creates 50 different controls for any auto rig
3. as_EasyBird -- Its for main auto rigging of bird
4. as_WingFeather -- It rigs feathers so intelligently.
5. as_AutoAnim -- Creates various options from one fly cycle
6. as_MirrorBirdAnim -- It mirrors one side anim to another side

Maya Pipeline: Skinning Transfer (Bird Rig)


This is the pipe line script. It is useful to transfer skinning from one mesh to another mesh including influence weights also. Normally it is difficult to select same number of joints and influence objects and do skinning again once mesh changed or unwrapping is done later.

Auto Insect Rigging -Mosquito (Robot-2010)


We have done CG Mosquito for Robot. In this, I have done R&D for Mosquito, there by come up with Auto Rigging for Insects. This Auto Rig is useful for all insects like Mosquito and even for butterfly. This auto rig provides much flexibility at thorax and legs area of mosquito
