This is a quick post which will be updated soon with more detailed instruction on how to install this. The process is the same as before except minor details listed in the included rig notes in the zip file below.
I’ve updated the Saucy Rig for Hash Animation Master with an important technical change. I’ve also created a few variants of the rig’s body controls based on some feedback and testing.
This rig has been designed to be very easy to install so you should not have any trouble after going over the videos and instructions.
Before you install this rig into you own model(s), I invite you to have a look at the Saucy Rig Overview post. There, you can download a sample rigged file to try out in Animation Master as well as watch a few videos on how it functions so you can determine if this rig is one that you think that you’ll find useful.
A few things about the rig have changed for the better since I first demonstrated it in a previous post (as the Drop-In Poker Rig) .
In my previous post I introduced the” Drop-In” rigging concept for Animation Master.
In the video that I included in that post I demonstrated installing the “Poker Rig” into a simplified robot model that I use for testing rigs. The model there is probably not a typical model so I wanted to show the rig being installed into a model that is more typical as far as its layout is concerned.
I was recently invited by Steve Shelton (“Shelton” at the Animation Master forums) to participate in a project that he, along with Chris Dailey (“mouseman” at the Animation Master forums), has been working on. It involves a coffee shop and a few mishaps 🙂 . The project is a precursor to a larger one that Steve has in mind and he is using this project as a learning experience before he moves on to the larger one.
I made this video because one of the users at the Animation Master forums, “thejobe”, was in the process of creating an animated short but he was having a lot of trouble trying to install the A:M 2008 Rig into one of his characters. Continue reading Video: Installing the A:M 2008 Rig→
A few weeks ago I was doing a search on the internet for inspirational material for a personal project that I am working on and I was diverted by something unrelated when I came across something called a character turn/ model sheet for Superman.

I went ahead and download the software from them but I have not installed it yet so I can’t give you my opinion on how well the software performs.
If you are interested then you’ll need to create an account on DAZ’s web site.
Once you do that you can download the software.
Be aware of the that you will need to provide them with a working e-mail address so that they can spam you with product offers.
Also if you do decide to download the software then have a look at this forum post on DAZ’s forums site. The post addresses a few functional issues that people are or were having once they ran the software.
