show user profile  mkultral25
does anyone know of a good tutorial on how to rig a quadruped and then animate it? ive seen a few run cycles but thus far it has been a difficult search.

Biped could be modified into quadruped. I read it in the CS help file back then. I haven't used biped for such a long time.

Hope that helps

I still haven't done rigging, but as for animating, the survivors guide is always a good start:

thanx for the picture of the walk cycle, im sure it will help. but bipeds are hard to manage. ive seen a tutorial of a quadruped using a biped but it did not deliver the effect that i wanted. im looking for bones in particular. unless you know of a better biped tutorial for it. the one i found came with max but it doesnt help me that much

This a really effective rig at first glance, you might be able to adapt it. It's done with splines and objects used as bones, not your classic bones setup.

If you have max 2009 the biped can be turned into a quadruped by using the 'hands as feet' function.
