From the start of this career, Every step has been taken carefully to develop various tools with a focus of eliminating most of manual processes from pipeline.
Developed various pipeline scripts like AssetsLibrary, ScriptsLibrary & GeoCache etc. and various other tools like as_HyperSkin, as_SnakeKit, as_EasyRig, as_EasyBird, as_EasyInsect, as_CreateWind, as_SkinTransfer, as_PathAnim, as_AutoAnim, as_EasyCloth, as_RagDoll and as_MultiSnakes etc.
My goal is to eliminate the rigging process to the maximum extent through programming and to give freedom to animator, so that he can go ahead as per his visualization during animation
Able to automate most of the manual and repetitive processes by developing scripted modules from various abstract and complicated situations. Rigging many characters in less time without loosing the quality to meet production deadlines is possible.
