Firat's quadroped animation

someone at 11sec club linked out to this rig (which you can get download if you have max) by Firat Can Kiral. I found his break down of how he animated it really interesting (even though the acting is pretty straight from the IceAge with the clip). I have ocassionally done this with biped characters, but it hadn't occured to me to do it with a quadroped, but it makes a lot of sense if the main point of the scene is not transportation then worry about the performance first then figure out the legs after wards. Firat's animation is even more pro because the character is talking about his feet, so it proves this will work even when focus will be brought to them.
