Chapter 3. Scripting a Basic IK Biped Rig

THIS CHAPTER TAKES you through the process of scripting a basic biped rig, as the basis for adding more advanced controls through the rest of this book.

You’ll examine a total of six scripts, four containing procedures for creating skeletons and icons, and two containing procedures for processing, transforming, and parenting all the rig nodes.
