Muscle setup - Spine Tips #7

February 12th, 2024

We are happy to share a new Spine Tips tutorial video! This time we will make an FK arm setup with an IK constraint to mimic the muscle contraction. We will use a few tools and techniques that are the basis for any character setup in Spine. The result is a simple and fast setup that can add a subtle lifelike quality to our rigs, without complicating the animation process.

Try to follow along and create the skeleton yourself using the project files found in the video's description.

Whether you are new to Spine or looking to improve your skills, you should find some valuable tips here. Stop by the Spine forum and discuss your setups and different ways to automate your characters!

Have fun and happy animating!
