Rig Ui

Updated for Blender 4.1
(latest release not compatible with Blender 4.0 due to changes in the API)

Rig UI Pro
🔥 Why use Rig UI Pro? Because it will supercharge your rig UI and its functionalities not only with simple bone collection visibility controls but with bookmarks, special actions, custom properties, armature extras, and specific panels for different popular armatures like AutoRig Pro and Rigify.

Bone Collections

Bone Collections Documentation

Manage buttons for each bone collection. Pin the collections you want to display.

Traditional bone collections UI or Pro version for extended functionality:

  • Isolate the collection’s visibility. (LMB)
  • Select all bones in the collection. (shift LMB)
  • Toggle bone collection visibility. (alt LMB)
  • Configure Bone Collection. (ctrl LMB)
  • Add new bone collection with currently selected bones (ctrl shift LMB)

Highlight the bone collection containing the active bone.

Bone Collection Move Mode

    • When active, you can move elements to other bone collections from an intuitive UI directly on the bone collections buttons UI.
    • Different options to display where your bone is and where you can move it, including displaying unpinned groups (always, never, while moving).

        What people are saying:

        Blender 4.1 (version 1.0.3) Updates

        Rig UI free (and Pro) updates:

        In this release I've focused on making Rig UI more intuitive and efficient.

        New look and revamped new icons.

        The element position editing system has been completely overhauled, offering new, user-friendly controls for moving elements with the arrow keys or WASD (instead of having to deal with rows or priorities manually).

        Edit, add/remove, pin/unpin elements directly from Rig UI.

        As well as improved support for Rigify, including better integration and functionality.

        Rig UI Pro updates:

        Armature extras (Motion Paths popover)and new UI Extras panel.

        Exporting now works and exports a basic version of the bone collections to be used without the addon. More to come soon.

        All the new and improved modes for Move, Add/Remove, Pin/Unpin and Edit are available for VIsibility Bookmarks and Custom Properties.

        Custom Properties Delete and FIltering options.

        Custom properties can now have a "Custom Name" to display in the UI instead of the name of the property.

        Bug Fixes: These include fixes related to panel naming conventions, external link functionalities in group tabs, and the Rigify regeneration process, among others.
