Rigging” is the process of adding controllers and automations to a character to make it easier to animate, to be able to manipulate it in the same way a puppeteer manipulates its pupppet. It’s a way of working common with 3D softwares, used to animate characters in After effects, thanks to the script Duik, which I’m developping. These tutorials are meant for people already knowing After Effects and willing to learn cut-out character animation, which is what Duik was developped for. This course is very useful combined to my comprehensive animation course 😉

In this Official Character Rigging course with Duik Bassel video course

All essential rigging techniques are shown here. But you have to be aware that rigging and animating characters is a complex process, and you will need a lot of time and experience to achieve a good level. These tutorials aim to teach you solid bases to quickly animate your first characters. You should learn to setup characters only if you’re confident with After Effects!
  • Parent links
  • Effects
  • Precompositions
  • Keyframes and interpolations
  • Puppet tool
These five tools should have no secret for you – but we will see together how to use them concretely for rigging characters. It will be useful if you already know how to create expressions too – even if you don’t master them yet – I’ll show you some examples of how to apply useful expressions. I’ll be using several tools of After Effects (parents, precompositions, expressions…) and of Duik (controllers, IK, autorig, automations…), as long as the puppet tool in the end. A big part of these tutorials are free, they are the videos explaining the tools of Duik, showing what is written in the user guide – which you can download freely too, or you can buy the beautiful printed version available soon. In this course, we will rig and use the characters which were designed by my very talented friend Juistine Cunha for my comprehensive animation course which is a great complement to this rigging course. You can watch Justine’s gorgeous work there and on Instagram. Some of these tutorials make use of a very new version of Duik Bassel, 16.1. This is so new that at the time of the release of the tutorial, it’s not yet publicly available! This private version is provided with the source files of the tutorial so you can play with it before everyone else 😉 The script and the source files are working with all versions of After Effects since CS6 (11.0), but I also show some interesting tools which only work on the latest versions of After Effects (CC2019, 16.0).
