I wanted to share this, since I think it’s probably quite useful. Since Epic basically focus on the Maya tools and there’s no ready to go Max version of Blue Man. When I was working on my Game Jam project, I kinda wished I had the Blue Man rigged in Max and it was too time consuming to do it for that project, but I decided to do a Biped setup for him now anyway, for possible future use. I thought a CAT rig would be cool or even a custom rig but I think Biped is maybe the most globally useful, concerning motion capture… etc.
So anyway, here is the link to grab the file. Although I did the setup in Max 2015, I saved it out backwards compatible to Max 2012, which is the lowest it’s able to go. So anyone with Max 2012 and up, should be able to open this, I wasn’t able to test it on lower versions though.
I’ve updated the download link, it now has 2 files in the archive, a Biped and a CAT rig.
I’ve also created a biped rig for the new “Grey Guy” Epic added since version 4.8. You will see there are now 2 download links, one for the blue guy and one for the grey guy.
This video shows the Biped rig setup, how it works and how it exports. The CAT rig works the same way for exporting.
