Rigging is one of the more challenging steps of creating content. In this webinar we’re applying rigging to something very specific during this two hour session; necklaces.

We start with learning how to rig a base necklace and then moving onto more complex examples. Learn how to bring your designs to life with Esha’s thorough demonstration of the rigging process.

It’s all done step by step, turning your fixed creations into animatable props.

In this masterclass we go through in detail:-

  • The Transfer Tool
  • Tweaking Weight Maps
  • JCMs
  • Creating a base (or simple necklace)
  • Creating a poseable necklace
    • Adding additional bones and using Dformers.
    • Adjusting for movements and body shapes
  • Generating a Necklace with Pendants
    • Rigged
    • Rigid Follow Node

Q&A sessions are included after each section; take advantage of this live webinar and drill down to explore your rigging problems with these kinds of props.

Presenter : Esha

Esha lives in Austria and has been creating 3D products for nearly 12 years.
She has created content for Smith Micro and Daz and is an active vendor at daz3d.com.

When Daz released the Developer Tools for Daz Studio in 2008 she integrated them into her workflow and has been working with Daz Studio, alongside Poser, ever since. In recent years she has been focusing on DS for product development.

Esha’s favourite tools include Daz Studio, Poser, ZBrush, Wings3D, Xfrog, Marvelous Designer, UVLayout and Photoshop. In all of these she is a self-taught artist, basing her skills on years of experience and numerous online tutorials.
She fully understands the difficulties of moving from Poser to Daz Studio, having made that journey herself, and enjoys passing on her Studio know-how to new users.

Esha also has several years of experience in teaching adults. She firmly believes that the best way to learn is to actively do something yourself, so she favours a hands-on approach in teaching.

Knowing only too well how tiresome it is to gather scraps of information all over the web she wants to provide comprehensive webinars that really offer solid information. Moving from the basics to advanced procedures she takes care to make sure that her audience will be able to follow her courses smoothly.

In her spare time Esha loves listening to classical music, baking muffins and collecting cat photos.
