IKFK Solver & Animatable Pivot, Rigging Video Tutorial
April 13th, 2010
I have been talking about this tutorial for several months, and now finally i can publish it. this 29 minutes length video covers the implementation of the ikfk solver and the animatable pivot constraint in the rigging process of a character, with these new tools the creation of a character setup becomes a faster process, besides of all the several advantages that they provide. It shows how to create a rig with control objects, reverse foot with animatable pivot and it explains several features about the ikfk solver.
It’s not wrestling, it’s Lucha Libre
April 13th, 2010
The project that has been developed for the last year and a half in Immersion Games is almost finished, i have been working there as animator and technical artist, doing scripts and a lot of unreal kismet programing for cinematics. It was a fun project because all the research that has to be done to understand the culture behind the wrestling in mexico, and i found that it is more interesting that i thought, now i can see why all the people there enjoy the show and admire their wrestling stars.
The trailer of Lucha Libre AAA Heroes del Ring is available to watch, check it out! (Click Image).

Nothing better to test a rigging tool than making an animation with it, so i have to go back to those old times as animator.
The Animation was made with a very basic setup using the ikfk solver, the pivot constraint was used to make a multiple pivot reverse foot and to offset the position of the center of mass, something that was pretty useful to make the character pivot around its ankle when he’s falling fordwards after stop walking.
