That is a nice goal, but Face Robot already exists within Softimage, and that does a pretty nice job already with facial gestures. What about just focusing on a full-body muscle rig? Just a thought/suggestion.

Well, that is awesome! I've looked through your stuff recently and thought it was another personal project gone stale. Glad to see a promising muscle system coming to softimage. Will definitely give it a good look.

Cheers

Update:
1.Fixed problem with installation on Windows7.
2.Now English version of the plug-in is available to download (see the top of this post).
Adhering to the SI ideology, we have supplied the plugin with the detailed documentation. You can call it from the Softimage Help menu.

You can't attach the FR rig to a normal rig thus is pretty useless for animating the face with the poses of the character in a shot. Not to mention I don't think you have the fine grained control over the muscles and muscle shapes in the FR setup either.

Hi Kosyan

would love to test out the full power of your plugin with an inhouse project we're working on, we have both facial and body rigging tools that might benefits from your muscle system.
Thanks

Hidalgo
