Do you find rigging in Blender difficult?

Tried and failed to build advanced rigs for your characters? Do you find it takes forever to create even a rudimentary rig?
You’re not alone. Rigging is tough. It requires a high level of both artistic and technical skills.

Lucky for us Blender offers us an easier solution: a free addon called Rigify. It’s not enabled by default, therefore many people don’t even know it exists. And its’ advanced features are hidden behind a slightly unintuitive interface. Thus few artists utilize it to its full potential.

Due to lack of quality information, a lot of Blender users think that Rigify is all about the Meta Rigs, especially the “Human Meta-rig”.

Rigify offers tools that allow you to solve less trivial rigging problems. When you learn how to use Rigify properly you can rig pretty much anything. Here are some characters we’ll rig together in this course:

Build your Rigs from Lego Blocks

Rigify is a modular rigging system. It provides the artist with easy to understand building blocks like legs, arms, spines, tails, and many more. Using those you can rig almost any character.

Traditional rigging, on the other hand, deals with abstract and complicated concepts like constraints, drivers, local vs world translations, matrices etc. The truth is, most artists won’t have the to learn manual rigging at an advanced level. Thanks to Rigify, we don’t have to.

So Rigify is pretty awesome.

The only problem is figuring out how to use it.

Ô×íThis is where this course comes in.

You’ll learn how to rig any character in the following three modules: Rigify Basics, Rigify Video Manual, and Advanced Rigify Sessions.

Rigify Basics

is where you’ll learn the most important aspects of Rigify. These are the chapters you’ll get as soon as you purchase:
