Buckid is a simple animation rig. It has all the features to do wide range of animations. It is best for physical animation practices. I originally made this rig for my animation students. I wanted it to be very fast so it can run on lower configuration computers. The controls are kept simple an intuitive without compromising usability. Hopefully animator of all levels will have fun working with this rig.
Compatibility: This rig file was saved using Maya 2008, but it should work fine with previous versions of Maya. Just turn on the "Ignore Version" check box in the open option box and it should open just fine.
