ICE Walking system
ICE Walking System from LAVISH on Vimeo.
The walking system itself is demonstrated about 12 minutes into the video (I recommend viewing in HD). An extremely impressive work of modelling and rigging. This is precisely the sort of work Softimage needs to showcase its ICE rigging abilities (implemented in 2011). Considering Softimage 3d had a procedural walking system built into it in 1998, I think it's about time XSI was shipped with multiple rigs of many different types (an auto rig building system which could cover about 90% of all rigging requirements if done well) and multiple (production ready) ICE-based procedural walking systems, out of the box. These could be installed as a workgroup users could plunder and explore.
