    Hey,sorry but I have tried my best to get Maya 2016 licence from somewhere, but just cant able to install.. There is some issue with Microsoft C++ dist.setup in Maya 2016. So,not compiled with 2016, but I will make it available in next few days as I got it from my contacts..

    Finally got time to update Dynamic System in CDK. Now you can add dynamic- Fk chains in CDK.. It will automatically creates bake set for dynamics.. If your character need single chain for dynamics like tail or ear go for dynamicFk system in guide itself. If your character has multiple dynamic joint chains like bunch of hairs, I would like to suggest to create after rig setup by using Dynamic Chain tool in Tools tab. Because It gives you control on using existing solver and not to create solver each and every chain..

    No. Not in the versions I have updated... CDK mainly does the rig for Body mechanics.. Although u can do small facial stuff like ,jaw,tongue,eyes and sliding joint setup with CDK. Im working on Facial script, but It will took longer as it's very difficult to write something to satisfy variety of character facial. Even at work places, I prefer to do Different facials according to project needs and then automate that rig. Hope, I will get the time to finish Facial code..and will come soon with CDK. Thanks for your query..

    Ohhh...my mistake... I will definately make sure tovgive update info with every update. as far as rig concerns, im making sure not to change naming conventions or hierarchy of rig. just adding and updating new tools, new features to rig.

    https://vimeo.com/132534077 here is link to output... Soon Will be post How to setup this thing. But basically you need to copy icon folder as mention in install text. and run a script. In facial tab just fill the information It asks.. This facial setup only works with "CDK " rigs...
