Help with fully rigged models
I’m looking for fully rigged models of a female I can play with, animate, test, learn walk cycles and other actions for a female character.
I wish to a thin model (less controls) that is done with rigify, where the face bones are fully rigged.
I actually didn’t find any neither paid nor free.
I cannot find any that correspond to my needs. If you can help it’ll be just great.
I found some nice models but they didn’t correspond to my needs. Either I could not actually use them with Blender properly - that is either it was with Autorig Pro or they didn’t display the Rig Layers window.
If you wish to learn more details about what I found and what worked and didn’t… it is listed below. Now, I’ll get back to my questions:
1. Do you know open sources or else two find models with a solid rigs done with rigify or at least that display after download the RigLayers option?
2. Do you know how to display the RigLayers window and/or how to regenerate a rig from another rig which doesn’t display the RigLayers option.
Thanks for advance…
and if you need more information to grasp my quest:
1. The models I found fully rigged properly were Sintel, Min, Mike. From blender.org and Autorig pro respectively. The last two were done with Autorig Panel and I decided to stick to a certain work flow in particular as as Rigify offers much more online information which is a big issue as a novice. (it wasn't the 20$ price that detered me).
Sintel is beauty but has many issues with Cycles. It seems from various comments that these problems are from 2015. So I wish to avoid.
I purchased two models, but had a bad experience. Not a top mesh and rig… the worse as a novice was to invest tine to learn that it wasn’t my fault (ex: were made on Blender Internal, had too issues with Cycle, face was done with 2D texture and not actual mesh+rig, etc').
I looked for others resources (about 5) but was less than confident from the clarifications i got from the authers.
As for the Rig Layers tab. In most cases it didn’t display with the downloaded models I found. I tried to rerun the scripts (when I could access them…), I looked at discussions, I tried an Add-on (Beorn Leonard ) and one other online Phyton script… it didn’t help.
I note that the RigLAyers tab is displayed in many other cases. Other models (with too many flaws) that I downloaded or when I CTRL+A Armature/generate rig or in cases when I had to rerun the script and it worked.
I also copy the action from one rig to another… without brilliant results. That is from a given model to a model I generated and that do display the Rig Layers tab.
While I followed the path showed in some tutorial, I didn’t do it before and thus, cannot tell with confidence that I did it right.
My conclusion was to rig it myself… But this is an art in itself and I wish to learn animation… and it is good to do one thing at the time.
Any input would be highly appreciated!
I attache a model I downloaded and actually an tryng to rig it from scratch, it has a decent rig, with small issues with the weight... yet, my main issue is that I could not genrate the Rig layers tab. (I did apply scale).
