Here's a video with me showing the rig. I'm sorry for the bad audio, I will probably re-record it with a new mic when I've added the squash and fixed any bugs you might find.
I created this rig to learn more about rigging 4-legged characters.
I will be adding squash and stretch soon, and I will also take the chance to fix some deformation problems when I add the squash and stretch. Please post any bugs you find so that I can fix them when I fix the other problems.
And ofcourse I would love to see any animations done with this rig.
Have fun animating/playing around. :)
I've only tried it in Maya 2012 so please tell me if it has any problems in the older versions.
