Radiant Rig Help

Radiant Rig is my implementation of the paper “Raycast based auto-rigging method for Humanoid meshes” by Romain Lopez (ESGI Paris) and Christophe Poirel (ESGI Paris). It works only in Blender 2.6.8 and above. Radiant Rig depends upon Rigify. Radiant Rig automatically creates a human meta-rig sized to fit the selected figure. Download Radiant Rig here.

Installation

Rigify comes pre-installed in Blender. It needs to be activated in order for it to work with Radiant Rig.

1) Go into User Preferences (Windows CTRL+ALT+U or Macintosh CMD+,)

2) Click on “Addons” and search for “Rigging: Rigify”. Make certain there is a checkmark beside Rigify.
