Check Out This Preview for Zoo Tools Pro’s Auto-Rigger

Zoo Tools Pro’s Auto-Rigger has a nifty mouse proximity feature only showing relevant controls.

Andrew Silke offers a preview of the upcoming Zoo Tools Pro Hive Auto-Rigger for Autodesk Maya. The advanced sneak look shows off Hive’s controls for rigs inside of Maya. The new control system can have a mouse proximity feature, meaning that controls don’t show unless the mouse cursor is in its vicinity.

Hive is an auto-rigger included in Zoo Tools Pro, and it’s something that is currently in alpha. Zoo Tools Pro is the next iteration of the Maya tools offering a modular framework for Maya artists, TD’s, and developers. The toolset is wholly rebuilt from the ground up using Python and Qt/Pyside2.
