For a game I am currently developing, I needed to make completely custom Humanoid rigs from scratch. These rigs then needed to be animated using Roblox’s Animation Editor. Unable to find a modern plugin for accomplishing such a task, I decided to make one myself!
Here are the features of my plugin which are all very easy to use:
- Create new joints. With a few clicks, you can make joints between parts of your custom rig. As you do so, you can see the “skeleton” you are building.
- Edit existing joints. Want to adjust the center of your joint? No problem! The plugin features easy movement tools to move the joint’s center to further customize and simplify animation.
- Delete unwanted joints. It’s easy to make mistakes, so I made it easy to remove them! Click on joints with the Delete Joints tool to remove them from the skeleton.
Each tool is intuitive, easy to use, and uses a modern interface. Each action will also update the rig’s skeleton preview as the actions are made. The plugin window will match Studio’s current color theme, as well.
Here is a quick instructional video in which I use this plugin to go from an assortment of parts to a complete, animation-friendly horse:
