Course Overview

If you have a basic understanding of rigging in Maya, but you're looking for solid instruction on body rigging in a classroom environment with personal feedback from your instructor, this 8 week online workshop is for you.

Dreamworks' Mauro Giacomazzo will take you thoroughly through the process of rigging a character body, right from the basics (how to approach a rig) through to rigging the various important body parts (spine, head, feet etc), through to the best ways of testing your final, completed rig.

A high quality model will be provided for you, or you can bring your own (subject to Mauro's approval.)
