Interactive training series for MODO users

Rigging Master Course Training Video offers a comprehensive, on-demand educational system for users of all levels interested in learning production-level rigging. Your instructor, Rich Hurrey, takes you from the basics of the MODO interface and tools, through to covering in-depth such challenging topics as 'Inverse Kinematics' and the 'Schematic Viewport'. With the advanced skills gained in the foundation section, you can tackle a tutorial that ultimately results in a full production-ready asset.
This interactive training series includes 26+ hours of keyword searchable videos with indexed chapter markers, cross-referenced links to the related sections of the training and online documentation, an extensive FAQ's section as well as included scene files for you to open and follow along. All of this is packaged in a beautifully intuitive, easy-to-navigate interface. Designed for all levels of users, this series provides not just the 'how', but the often missing 'why'. This is more than a rigging video tutorial, it is an entire master class course that is sure to give you new insight into how MODO works and an appreciation for the power it is capable of.
