Updated demo reel

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

While I’ve been making small edits to it here and there, it’s been a while since I compiled a new demo reel. I’ve incorporated a couple of work pieces into it as well as added a more elaborate turntable sequence for the Fiat 500 model I posted a few weeks ago. Check it out!

New script for download – DB3D Manipulator Creator

Friday, September 7th, 2012

I’ve been dabbling with MEL from time to time and developed what I’ve found to be a pretty useful tool for any kind of rigging: a NURBS curve generator. It builds NURBs curves in a variety of shapes (square, circle, sphere, others) that can be used as control objects for anything. While I’m not an expert at MEL, I’ve found the script to be pretty stable and there’s also some error-checking built into it to make sure it can be run safely without damaging other objects in your scene. Give it a shot!
