This is great. Are there any recent tutorials on this? I found a few from 2010. Thanks!

Hey Rob,

I've done a tutorial for abFaceRigTools, but nothing for abAutoRig itself.  A few more recent tutorials come up in Google, but I can't vouch for the quality of any of them.

Hi, I wanted to add Fingers that pin so that you can rotate the wrist and the fingers stay in place. How would you recommend incorporating this into an existing rig built using abAutoRig - Specifically where within the rig hierarchy - thanks in advance

Hey Clare,

You can use the finger IK attributes to essentially pin the fingertips in space, which may be close to what you're looking for.  The way you would do it for the left index finger is to:

  • Select your character's lf_hand_ctrl, and in the channelBox set the indexIK attribute to 1 (to enable IK on the left index finger), and set stretchyIkFingers to 1 (so the lower two finger joints stretch, allowing the fingertips to remain pinned).

  • The square Index IK control should appear (and the FK controls disappear).  Select it and set its space to "World" by setting its lfHandCtrl attribute to 0, and its worldSpaceCtrl attribute to 1.

Now you can move the hand control and the index finger should stay pinned.

Hope that helps.
