Updated to version 1.5
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.

Mark designed a process to install the rig into a character model without having to know a lot about rigging. Even so, some users who are new to rigging in Animation Master may still have some trouble.
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 →
