Guide to using the Malcolm rig:

If you experience crashing using this rig: Maya has made very large changes in the last few versions which make rigs more likely to crash Maya. Here are a few things you can try.If you’re using Maya 2018 First try installing Maya 2018 Update 4 or 5. If you’re using Maya 2019, try the latest update version. (Updates are available on the Updates tab on autodesk’s site)

If that doesn’t fix it: Next, assuming Parallel execution mode is on, try turning on or off GPU Override:

Settings/Preferences>Settings>Animation>Evaluation>GPU Override

Next try: Viewport, Renderer>Viewport 2.0 Options, Turn off Consolidate World.

If that doesn’t help, change Settings/Preferences>Settings>Animation>Evaluation Mode to DG instead of Parallel. That will make the scene playback slower but normally solves all rig crashing issues because Maya is no longer trying to multi-thread the rig calculations.

Note: the public version NOW includes the full outfits for the scientist and cowboy villain. Those used to be exclusively for students and original crowdfund backers but are now for the public as well.
