Most epic and useful gift ever.


Hello guys,
since Christmas is close I've a little present for you.
It is the most awesome rig you can ever think of:
the POTATO RIG!



EDIT: Now with Variants!


Quick! Be the first to animate the awesome POTATO RIG
You can download the file for Maya 2013 here:

It comes with textures so just be sure to set the project/path correctly :)

Happy Christmas and happy animating the potato.

  2. No, it is a potato so is supposed to be the most simple thing ever.
    I may add squash and stretch for Hannukah though.

  4. You should remove the scale from the ctrl because they dont do anything. Also make the mesh unselectable

  5. I wasn't expecting requests :D
    There is a layer to toggle selection. Anyway I updated the rig...so this means now you are going to create an awesome animation with it right?

  9. Please Mikael DO NOT learn from this rig.

  10. Sure:

    Step 01) open maya
    Step 02) launch Steam (pc, mac soon on linux)
    Step 03) select preferred game
    Step 04) play like a boss
    Step 05) switch to Maya and throw some joints
    Step 07) check the gameplay if you are still awesome
    Step 08) create some curves shaped like controls (or controls shaped as curves)
    Step 09) check your facebook (this one is important)
    Step 10) now rig the damn potato
    Step 11) forget to save and restart
    Step 12) you just realized step 6 is missing.
    Step 13) do the damn step 6.

    Hope it helps!
    Cheers!
