The Automatic Rigging DVD is a continuation of the topics covered in the Scripting 101 DVD. In Scripting 101, Charbel introduced fundamental concepts of scripting using both VBscript and Jscript. He also built the Rig Guide script that will be used for the proportions of the rig. In this DVD, Charbel will be building the actual rig along with the Animation Control Panel. He will start off by defining the main functions that will be used to create the skeletal bones of the rig. Then he moves on to the parenting and contraints that will eventually build up the RiggingPRO rig.

A lot of subtle refinements were added to the RiggingPRO rig, thus making the resulting rig as flexible and enjoyable to animate as possible. The next part of the DVD will cover the creation of the Animation Control Panel, which is a centralized panel for controlling one or more characters at a time. This DVD will showcase the creation of 2 major scripts: the AutoRIG and the Character Control scripts. The last chapter of the DVD will show how to package the addon for installation of different machines if required.

I have started watching the videos and I can only say I am smiling from ear to ear. This is exactly what I've been looking for. I joined a course at my local college last September and have learned more in 5 minutes from your videos than in all the time at college. Highly recommended! G. Nixon
