This is the first look into character rigging. Rigging is such a wide area, so these tutorials are going to be uploaded in parts. The first part is:

– Setting up the skeleton.

The next tutorial will be comming soon. In the next tutorial we will be looking at how to setup the leg.

I hope you enjoy this tutorial. Let me know what you think about it, or if you have any subject you want me to look at let me know, by writing a comment.

    Great videos. Thanks! I was wondering though if you are running maya on a touchscreen. I can't see your mouse.

    Question: When i duplicate and move the joints like at 1:47 i get the following:
    // Warning: Joint orientation aborted. joint24 has non-zero rotations.
    Will that be a problem later on in the rig? I did everything like in the video. Can somebody help? Thanks
