Technical / FX Artist Mahmoodreza Aarabi shows off some of his 2D character rigging and animation tools within Autodesk Maya. The tools are in-house tools that offer an easy way to rig and manage cutout 2D characters in Maya. Madoodia shows off a biped and quadruped auto rigging tool, as well as a custom pose manager. Some pretty nice stuff- would love to get my hands on this rather than using After Effects.
