Mike Bauer Max Tutorials

When I was out sick yesterday I spent some of the day watching this guy's "Ninja Bud" beginner rigging tutorial for Max. I STRONGLY recommend looking at it, if not just to learn some basic working tips in Max you may not have been aware of. The rig is simple, but has a lot of the stuff we always talk about wanting, such as facial controllers in the Max window, and foot roll and banking. It's really easy to follow, and well-explained for beginners (like me!)

- Morph Targets
- Creating sliders and spinners for controls through MaxScript
- Linking through the Reaction Manager (think 'set driven key' in Maya)
- Semi-complicated IK foot setup (allows for various foot controls, such as left and right banking, foot roll, toe wiggle, toe swivel, etc)
