Have Both Set Driven Keys and Animated Keyframes in Maya Controls

If you have ever wondered how to set up a joint chain and their controllers so that you can have both set driven keys and animated keyframes, this is for you.

Technical Artist Greg Hendrix walks through a method for creating set driven keys in Maya for a joint chain and their controllers so you can have the best of both worlds. This set up will allow you to have a set driven key that drives the joint chain, but also controllers that can be key-framed normally. This makes for a really flexible and animator friendly setup for any rig component.
