Morpheus rig 2.0 update:
We go our shirt and we have been testing the rig. It is making great progress and should be amazing to animate with. Josh and the CG Monks team have been doing great work and with the latest update we reviewed today, has made huge progress, there is an entire tool chain being created along with the rig. When it is ready and released it is going to be a robust and flexible base to build some great character animation on.
