I love rigs! I have spent months on this rig to make it exactly like the one for maya. I had some trouble on the facial rig though. IK rigged and animation ready. Some hair and hats on layer 2. Set up for quicktime render and the location is on your desktop.

    It's great to see this rig available for blender. I would however suggest de-cluttering your control shapes, moving the IK control squares out of his ankles and giving us the spine functionality that the maya version has. Also, it's probably a good idea to bring the knee targets up to the front of the knees. The purpose is so that an animator can control the knee, which isnt on the ground.

    A cluttered rig gets annoying very fast. So try to shrink the torso controls to their bare minimum. I can't speak for all animators, but I personally find it annoying trying to create a certain motion and not being able to read all the poses because the rig gets in the way.

    Everything else is very well done. Congrats.

    Is this the same as the Norman Rig Add-on for Blender 2.57 (and up) by Ivo Grigull?
