Human rig riding horse rig

Post by star striker » Wed Apr 22, 2020 4:23 am

Hi, I was just wanting to know if anyone had any good tips or know of any tutorials on having one rig interact with another rig? For instance a human rig riding a horse rig.

I currently have both characters rigged seperatly but would like to have the human character riding the horse bobbing up and down down whilst holding on to the stirrups?

Any ideas would be much appreciated

Thanks

I think you can just get both rigs in the same comp (either extract the controllers of both into one comp, or make the two rigs in the same.

And it should not be more difficult than doing some parenting, like parenting the body controller of the human to the torso of the horse, and the feet controllers to the stirrups. Or the stirrups to the feet, something like that
