BlenRig-a character rigging system provided by the Blender Foundation-provides you with tools that can help you bring your characters to life. In this course, join Darrin Lile as he breaks down how to use BlenRig to rig a character for animation in Blender. He shows how to install and set up the BlenRig add-on, and adjust the rig to match your character using the retargeting tools. He also demonstrates how to adjust the deform cage to fit the shape of a character, add corrective shape keys, and weight paint the hands and face. To wrap up, Darrin discusses how to set parameters and adjust actions and ranges to fine-tune the rig.
Topics include: * Retargeting the rig * Baking the rig * Adjusting the deform cage for the head * Adjusting the legs and feet * Binding the character to the deform cage * Adding corrective shape keys * Setting up drivers * Weight painting * Setting parameters * Adjusting actions and ranges
