Buy Allright Rig 2.0

Allright Rig 2.0.7  has been released for Unreal Engine 4.20, 4.21, 4.22. Its been a while since last update but system now is significantly improved! Unfortunately, supporting of Unreal Engine versions that are lower than 4.20, became very complicated due to deep changes in sequencer API. However, Allright Rig will also be updated for older engine versions on popular demand.

Major Features

New: Anim Offset controller

“Anim Offset” tool gives you ability to create animation layers.

  1. Open sequencer and select controller or any actor that has animation in this sequencer.
  2.  Click “Create Anim Offset” button.
  3. Animate offset controller in sequencer.
  4. Use “Weight” parameter for “anim offset” influence.
  5. Enable “Override” mode if you need to override existing animation.
  6. Use “Bake Anim Offset” button to bake layered animation to target actor.
  7.  Use “Delete Anim Offset” button do delete anim offset controller.

New: FkIk Rig Module Improvements

New IK controller properties:

  • Stretch Scale – scales amount of stretch.
  • Stretch Softness – makes smooth transition to straight pose.
  • Pole Vector Lock – locks bone positions to pole vector position.
  • Three Bone Ik Bend – proportion of bend between first and second joints in “Three Bone IK”.

Create controllers for twist bones:

Toggle twist controllers visibility in FkIk controller:

 

New: Create “Custom Controller” From Socket Position

Now you can use sockets to specify position for custom controllers.

New: Controller Shape Position Offset

Shape Offset – adds offset to controller shape without changing the actual pivot position of controller.

New: Bake Animation Cycles To Rig

Now you can bake looped animation tracks to rig.

Allright Rig 2.0 Advanced Face Rig Tutorial

This tutorial shows how to create face rig with normal and displacement maps using Allright Rig 2.0.

Allright Rig 2.0 FACS Based Facial Rig.

In this video Allright Rig plugin uses morph targets and textures from FACS based rig in order to get high quality production rig in realtime. This will help to make or edit believable animation of photo realistic characters in Unreal Engine 4.

Original face rig for Autodesk Maya was bought from Soukizero artist, combined with free Twin Blast character asset and adapted for use with Allright Animation Rig plugin.

Transform Tool Plugin that was made by Ilgar Lunin was used to move Allright Rig controllers in local space.
