I haven’t updated my blog in a while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on things.
Here is an update on the script for class.
I downloaded a rig of mixamo.com. My script generates NURBS curves at all the joints, parent constraints to the corresponding joint, and the NURBS curves mimic the joint hierarchy.
Also, I rename the joints to have the “_JNT” suffix added to the end of it. Then I have the NURBS curves mimic the name of the joints but replace “_JNT” with “_CNTRL”
I’m no done but it’s in a good spot at the moment.
Next, I will change the controls to rotate to be in the optimal angle for the rig, change the control size so they are easier to grab them, and create a UI to interact with the script.
My stretch goal is to take the Mixamo keyframes from the joints and bake them onto the controls I have created.
