April 2021 Recap: Rigging

This month we covered a lot of ground on rigging. Nice Moves Co-Founder Alicia Allen demoed a rig created by using image sequences. MNAE Co-Admin Tara Iannarelli showcased how to set up a mouth rig for voiceover lip-syncing and a full character rig using the free script Duik Bassel.

Tara also provided helpful PDFs inspired by her demo:

We also saw quick tips from Mike (Shortcuts), Brian (Mouth Animation from Audio), and Paul (Endless Looping).

For this month’s prompt about saw really fun works from Lucas, Adam, and Brian.

The winner of this month’s giveaway of the printed DUIK use guide was Mackenzie!

Thanks to everyone who made it out. We’ll see you next month!
