Maya Arm Rigging Tutorials

For my BYU Class, I did some simple rigging tutorials so that they could watch it after I shoe them in class. I made these available on Vimeo, so anyone can watch them. They're pretty simple, since this is a beginning Maya class, but for what it's worth, they may help someone else.

Oh, and by the way, if you join Vimeo (which is free), you can download the original video at the bottom right of the page.

Thanks for sharing.
Complicated though.
( Just started with Sketch up, I am just looking for an easy 3D modelling program to use for caracature and cartoons.)

A great tutorial, but would it be possible to have a link on the joint orient.zip?

I'm having trouble finding it and I cannot read the URL in the video.

Many thanks.
