  1. Hi Ahmed, I have been testing out the Shiko rig the last few days and am delighted to finally see such a flexible, advanced rig available for 3ds Max. You have done a really excellent job on this and it is a great rig to animate with.
    I noticed a strange bug however: I always work with Gamma turned on in Max’s settings but every time a control on the rig is selected, Max’s Gamma settings are automatically turned off. I have tried with various render engines(MR, Vray, Quicksilver) but it always happens. Your Shiko file opens with Gamma turned off.
    I wondered if you had noticed this yourself?

    Thanks again, great work.

    • Hey Danny ,
      im really pretty happy that you liked the rig , cant really wait until i see it animated 🙂
      and for Gamma thing : well in fact it doesnt open with gamma turned off it only does when you open rollout for any arm or leg and thats it to capture screen shot in a right way .
      well, it is my mistake i should reconsider better way that doesnt affect gamma .
      for the meaning time i wish you bear to turn it on before render or i may do a button for turning it on , let me think about a maneuver .
      thank you for taking a time to check the rig and also for spending time writing to me about the bug 🙂

    • Hi Amartya ,
      Happy you liked my rigs and regarding maya version i think it is will be soon but when exactly i really cant tell 🙂 just wish me a good luck and a days longer than 24 hours

    • Big Question !! well, simply you may do some search on youtube and check many examples demonstrated by videos on how to do that , i really dont have short answer for it:)
      but if you have more specific question i m here …thanks buddy

  2. I’ve been using this rig for a little while now and I’ve been having trouble getting the elbows to stay in place… i.e., resting on a table while animating the spine and core. Is there a way to keep the elbows locked in place? I can lock the elbow controller, but the geometry still moves.

    Thank you in advance,

    John Anderson

    • oh dear! unfortunately it wasnt built with that move 😦 …in the meaning time i may have no solution ..but i will try to figure out any solution and come back to you .
      hope i can see what you came up with it .
      the good news that i m finishing Maya new rig with that built in it …stay tuned 🙂
