Rigging of Baz the Tasmanian Tiger
3D Design and Visualisation :
After the modeling of Baz's skeleton is complete we move on to the next step.
In order to make Baz move his bones we must give him a skeleton which can be used in animation.
In a way we will give a skeleton a skeleton.
This skeleton is called a RIG and the process of creating this rig is called RIGGING
Images of the finished rig:
Bare Rig no Tiger attached:
Rig now with Tiger attached:
Rig in action see the neck flex:
For the first time in a very long time a Tasmanian Tiger can open it's mouth:
Tassie Tiger kicking up the hindlegs:
Riggs allow the animator a wide range of movement sometimes a lot more than would be possible in real life. Seen here is the overflex of the spine only possible in animation.
That must hurt , never mind Baz is quite tough.
