    if you spent the money for charater studio, then use it. there is no point in not using it.
    is it better to use Biped or Bones..... and why?
    i would suggest to learn both, bones and cs. the pro's of bones are that you can create your own custom rig, and that this is software independent, means that if you get a job but they use maya, you still know how to setup bones for your own custom rig.
    cs is fast and you can get good results pretty fast. but i would learn both and starting with bones.

    I'm currently working on a personal project for which I started to use CS on one character, but due to the need to customize the amount of bones needed for another character, I had to build a custom rig in Bones.
    Learning both has helped me a lot, though. I'm not constrained to one type of system and can now select the tool best suited for the project accordingly.
    If you have the time learn both. If you're in a rush, you might want to start with Biped/CS.
