Graham Thompson, one of our character tools developers, will be 
showing us how Houdini 9's new modular Auto Rig tools enable 
the artist to quickly and easily create biped, quadruped and 
other multiped configuration rigs.

Built from individual body parts that easily interact with each other,
Houdini 9 provides the artist with more powerful tools to quickly rig,
animate, and prototype characters.

Graham will go through the new Auto Rig workflow for creating production-
ready rigs.  Starting with Houdini's default rigs, we will proceed through
the new proxy generation system, create the Animation and Deform rigs,
and capture the geometry using Houdini's meta capture muscle
system.  He will also explain how to use the interactive viewport tools
to easily create your own custom rig configurations.

Graham will also demonstrate, using the new Houdini Object Model
and Python, how to dynamically create and manipulate digital
asset contents and data, and create a customized set of production-ready
animation tools.  Detailing how our own body parts and scripts are
constructed, he will also us how to access all the available
tools to create and test your own custom body parts and make them work
seamlessly with Houdini's default parts.

We hope you can make it!
