Bird rigging
show user profile  3joez
Guys I'm no expert in rigging. Let me ask something very generic, just to make up my mind.
So, I need help to make a seagull rig that I can then export to Unity. Any tutorial, tips, or anything else?

Will you be reanimating the bird in unity?
Or create the animations and import them in?

Rigging aint that hard tbh, if you spend a day learning the basics ( bone setup and weighting ) you could have a basic functional animation rig quite easily..

I generally don't like to use auto-weighting or envelopes etc, and with Max have always just used a Skin modifier and the weight-table to apply weights to each bone and the relevant vertices. Start from the root bone, select all verts, 100% weight to that bone, then work down the hierarchy applying weights to each bone and relevant verts..

Yes I am definitely a bird. At least at rigging.
I will bake the animations, Chillywilson.
@ScotlandDave: never had a try at weightTables. I'll give it a go.

use cat if you can unity likes it if you need to change it.
If not just bake the animation into the FBX exporter.
