Modular Rigging System: Auto Bird Rigging
------------------------------- -----------------------
Bird Rig Automation With Python Scripting Using Curves for joint locations.
This 'Module Rigging Package' involves 6 individual scripts as detailed below:

1. eRig ( Maya Module ) :
--> Helps to reduce typing of coding up to 60% for main scripts like as_EasyBird
--> It consists 50 attrs like snapTo_Vtx, createCurv etc. It is module for maya programming.
-->You can watch one of the many functions of 'eRig' here: eRig_UnfreezeRotation

2. eCtrl ( Maya Module ) -- It creates 50 different controls for any auto rig

3. as_EasyBird -- Its for main auto rigging of bird

4. as_WingFeather -- It rigs feathers so intelligently.
