The Setup Machine 3 is our most advanced Maya auto-rigger. Generate a flexible, modern character rig in minutes saving you days or weeks of work. TSM3 rigs make animation fun instead of frustrating -- with stretchy limbs, anti-IK pop, smart IK/FK switching, and more! If you ever realize that your rig isnít exactly the way you want it to be, you can go back to TSM3ís widget stage, reposition the widgets as needed, and then re-rig -- TSM3 will preserve all of your weight painting. Do you want to be able to work with your mocap data more effectively? Transfer it onto your TSM3 rig, and you can tweak and finesse to your heart's content. Tired of using cumbersome scripts to mirror poses and animation? TSM3 rigs make mirroring easy with true left-handed and right-handed coordinate systems. TSM3 is also designed to bake down to a simple skeleton with a single click making it easy to bring your character into any modern game engine.
Maya 2014 & up
The Setup Machine 3 will not work with "Viewport 2.0" turned on during rigging. Please be sure to switch to the default viewport while using TSMG with Maya 2015 & 2016.
