Luxology has announced the first installment of a new training series from instructor Rich Hurrey, which teaches users the skills necessary to create production-ready animation rigs in modo 501. The modo 501 Rigging Master Course consists of 26 hours of video training housed in an interactive framework.
A modeling and character technical director at Pixar Animation Studios, Hurrey gives viewers a foundation for modo’s animation toolset. The course starts with fundamentals and progresses to tutorials that explain how to rig models with increasingly complex behaviors.
Luxology’s documentation manager, James Darknell, worked closely with Hurrey to develop searchable documentation that embeds more than 26 hours of keyword-searchable videos. Using an HTML interface, the supporting materials include video chapter markers, keyword searches, and cross-referenced links to related sections of both the training and modo’s online documentation. The interactive framework also incorporates scene files, a glossary and FAQs, with links to specific topics throughout.
