Character rig overview: Full character

Now let's take a look at the full character rig. I'm going to open a scene called Full Char.ma, which is our full character. Now as you can see, this character is very close to the other character that we had. In fact, it's just a more complex version. As you can see, the character has full geometry. In other words, his geometry deforms. So for example, if I select the foot here, you can see that his geometry deforms.

The character also has full hands. So instead of those mitten hands, we have a three-fingered hand. So for example, we could select the index fingers here and rotate them. So this gives you a lot more control over hand gestures and that sort of thing. Now the most important change to this character is in the facial controls. I've given him a full face with full control over that face.

So if you want to move the head, it's still pretty much the same. So you just select this ring and you can rotate it and you notice this HEAD control rotates with the character....
