About

Character rigging and animation are quite complex nowadays.
This addon is another attempt to make it easier.

Use version 1.0.1 for Blender 2.8 and version 1.1.1 for Blender 2.81 or higher

Here is the manual, issue tracker,voting for upcoming features and some videos about this addon


Features


  • Turn basic armature into the animation ready rig in a couple of clicks
  • A more intuitive way to pose and animate a model
  • Different posing modes (see manual for details)


  • Bones can be pinned
  • You can change root bone on the fly
  • Character skeleton may have loops

  • The rig can split into parts during the animation

  • You can animate objects in the same way as bones

  • Most of the features can be accessed from the pie menu
