Houdini is a simple feline rig, for animators who want to quickly experiment with and learn about feline motion. I've kept the number of controls to an absolute minimum and there's really nothing too fancy to it! Good clean kitty fun.
He should be compatible with maya 2011 and up, possibly backward compatible but I have not tested this!
IK Spine and neck with stretch
Layer Based Visibility Controls
Variable leg length
IK legs with Pole Vector Constraints
Sharp edges, so handle with care.
A distinct lack of facial features for focus on body mechanics.
Plans for future releases:
Auto stretch on legs
Space switching for head and pole vectors
Volume preservation on torso
Revised hip and wrist skeleton
