SHAVE AND A HAIRCUT NOTE: You would need Shave and A Haircut for Maya 2015 (*/**) in order to render the hair, otherwise you would be able to render only the main mesh. For an even better render quality you can increase the hair primitives count up to your machine memory limit (The actual renders have been made on a machine based on a single I7 cpu with 16 gigs of ram - about 9 minutes for a 1480x800 frame/ without DoF) --9 different hair systems for a total of about 2.5 mil. hairs. The Shave and Haircut Fur is included in each MAYA format (2015 ma/mb).
* The actual files have been created with Shave and a haircut 9.0 ** Please always use an updated Shave and a haircut release to avoid rendering issues.
RIG & ANIMATION NOTES:
This model is rigged using simple ikHandles and NURBS primitive control objects to help achieve realistic animations of the limbs, joints, and muscles. The rig in scalable. Control objects can be easily manipulated through the transform tools to achieve desired animations. The 'roar' morph is included and attached via blendshape to the head control.
4 fully editable animation sets have been included in maya files 2015 (referenced to the main rig) to make them easier to use and edit:
