So this was animated in probably 15 minutes or less.  I don't normally use the rig, but you can make some decent base animations very quickly by puppeteering the rig, even for how badly the front legs work.  While I won't use this for when making serious animations, I may for when making shorter, quick, stupid things.

Puppeteering is when you grab a bone on the model and move it while time is progressing. All movements are recorded.  Do a few passthroughs holding different bones, refine a bit, and you can get some interesting effects.

This is far from great animation, but is pretty nice for something so quick.

I may not be a fan of MLP, but I recognize talent when I see it.
You have talent.

I just so happened to see the thumbnail for this in the sidebar while looking at some other stuff.  They were quite merrily dancing along to Choir Boys: Run to Paradise which I was listening to at the time.  I don't know if you were listening to anything when you did this but the timing was perfect, intentional or otherwise XD

Kind of. One exists, but it doesn't work very well. I rarely use it.

Are there any more IK RIGs? I'm asking that because I really wanna practice on some poses, and any IK RIG for those MLP models would help me alot.

The only public ones are those found when downloading the original SFM models from Nahka. There is a link in the description for it.

Like it! Can you make a TCF remake? Make it with 2 versions: One that the TCF Structure is different (and the palm trees) without the ponies (with the TCF moviment) and the other one that has the same animation and structure with the MLP ponies.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

I am sure that you hear this question very often, but ... what models do you use, do you happen to have a link?
I can imagine that these questions get annoying, so sorry.
