After setting up a biped to your character's base pose, use this tool to create a base skeleton rig.

Since you are using biped, you can scale the rig into place, and utilize its mirror function so you only have to do half the side. Then run the tool, and the rig will be made.

This script is for fast and accurate mesh skinning, but it won't generate skin for production ready. There will by always something to correct weights.

It's very simple all You have to do to set slice boxes. Just watch video and everything should be clear.

In version 0.6 there is simple automatic mirroring made. The rigg should be set in x=0 position.

All comments and suggestions are welcome.

------------ version 0.7 -----------

- Script didn't work with bones which had space in names - Not any more :]
