    Excellent Rig, great for animation practice! Is there a way to make him close his eyes though?

    Thanks for the upload :D

    There are drivers for the face, but I couldn't find them, so I bypassed the problem by removing the drivers from the drivers from the shape keys I wanted to use. Go to graph editor, click button the lets you see drivers, hit drivers tab and then delete driver from each that you want to use. Drivers must be somewhere, but I couldn't find them. This workaround means you need to go to the dope sheet sub menu Shape Key Editor to animate the face mesh.

    It is a small program error related to the rig script. Click to "Reload Trusted" on top of the program.

    To prevent this from bothering you every time you can enable the "automatically run python scripts" option from the user preferences.

    It is only a problem in the script. Click to "Reload Trusted" on top of the program.

    Confirmed. If you open this in Blender 2.7 there are no arms or legs.

    Sure it works, is it compatible with the new version, all you need to do is reload the file by clicking "Reload Trusted" on top.

    I do not understand why, the rig works well, just click on "Trusted Reload" at the top.

    Hey, great rig, but the left hand finger controls do not seem to be working for me. Everything else seems to be working great except for the left hand fingers they really dont move when I try to pose them.

    Everything works great, But the fingers of the hand all rotate at the same time using scale attribute. This is not a good thing when dealing with real hand and finger posing, each parts of the finger should rotate independent of each other. If can update it it will be a great thing. Keep it up!
