  • how do i set up a quadruped leg rig for my game enemy?

    well this dude isn't necessary a quadruped, but in a sense it is, or at least his legs are. i have him in the set up of a bipedal, but im not content with the way the legs work. i've seen how a quadruped is rigged, but not how it's set up with controls in the hierarchy

    i intended to have him run like an ape too, is there a rig for that too? or do i set up the arms as that IK/FK stuff??

    Remember that for game characters you don't necessarily need a complicated handle system (or even rig); ultimately, you're going to bake down all the joints to simple rotation keys.

    If you want to do ape running you'll most likely need/want IK in the arms. Unfortunately, IK/FK switching can be a little goofy when baking, so you'll probably want to animate everything with IK if you're going that direction.

        Oh, and you might take a look at our digital tutors account to see if there is any quadraped tutorials to help on that account.
