How to set advanced character rig with DUIK in After effects

Requirements

  • You should know basic Ae interface. If you have worked with Duik before it also will be good, but not extremely necessary.

Hi creators!

My name is Alena, I am a motion designer from Ukraine and I have been working as a designer for 5+ years.

In this class, I will show you how to boost your rigging skills and set one character who can rotate the head, hands, body, and even legs. In this case, you can set only one character and use him in multiple scenes. It’s very comfortable and saves time.  I will use a free script Duik and After Effects for this goal. We will set all body parts separately:

  • Head (rotation, eye blink, eye position)
  • Body Rig (body rotation, spine bend)
  • Hand Rig (palm rotation, IK controllers, shoulders rotation)
  • Leg Rig ( knee bend, foot rotation, toe bend, IK controllers, pelvis rotation)

This class is for Intermediate level animators but if you are a Beginner I will explain basic details about the rig. You need to know  After Effects interface, how to work with keyframes and layers. If you always wanted to start enjoying the rigging process or you want more control for your animation, this course is for you. You can find tips and tricks and use them separately for your personal tasks.  Download the project file and see how everything works and also I attached a clean version project with just a character that you can use to train your rigging skills.
