GEAR_mc is a fork of Jeremie Passerin's GEAR project for Softimage.
GEAR is an open source project to provide a complete and production quality toolset for rigging and animation inside Autodesk Softimage�. It includes a lot of things to ease the rigging and animation workflows.
Anyone should be able to build custom rigs using GEAR. It has been designed to be flexible and relatively easy to use. Even non-riggers can create advanced rigs and animate them easily, but the system is also open to further expansion so TDs can create their own "components" and use them inside of the GEAR Rigging System. Furthermore, everything is accessible through scripting with a complete API to automate as much as possible.
