Check out a robust and flexible new tool for path animation in Maya called bh_pathAnim. The tool is simple and intuitive, and will let you attach any rig, with any number of limbs and body controls, to a path and animate it walking or running along it.
The tool is said to work for bipeds, quadrupeds, insects and other creatures, including a function to bake the path animation back to the rig.
The developer has also recently added a new tool:
Hey Animators, I’ve created a new tool that works alongside my path animation system and makes fixing foot slip a -LOT- faster!

Hope it comes in handy and thanks for your support!
