Rig UI Builder


I created this Rig UI builder as part of my Bachelor Thesis at the Stuttgart Media University. The idea was to create a UI builder that would allow users to interactively create a user interface for rigs without coding. The user interfaces are based on XML. The user can export the Rig UI to a XML-file, as well as load existing XML-files which allows for creating UI templates. For more experienced users, the Rig UI can also be exported to Python code, which can then be edited to add additional functionality. This video is a quick tech-demo of the Rig UI builder.
