Spider Animation – tutorial videos

Project Information

3D World magazine asked me to create a tutorial on the creation of a creature animation using Cinema 4D. I elected to produce a spider, and to show the creation of the walk cycles, poses, and motion sequences.
NB: This was created and recorded in 2009, so some methodology and tools may have changed somewhat, but if you'd like to have a go, you can download the un-animated spider rig below.

    I found this on youtube and it is great. I was wondering though if you have a tutorial for how you rigged this, set up constraints, Xpresso etc . This is exactly the rigging I am trying to achieve for another project and I am getting lost. Any help would be Greatly appreciated.
