Blender Animation Toolkit
Instructors: Beorn Leonard and Nathan Vegdahl
Produced by: CG Cookie
In this Blender training series you will learn body animation, facial animation, lip syncing, and a complete workflow for animating your character scenes in Blender using our new Cookie Flex Rig. Through the series you will be walked through the complete process of animating two scenes, from story-boarding to layout to blocking to polishing the animation.One scene will be taught by Beorn, and one scene by Nathan.
You will also learn the ins and outs of the Cookie Flex Rig, how to quickly generate many character variations, and how to bring the rig into your scenes. Along with this you will learn about each of the different animation editors, working with pose libraries, keying and auto-keying in depth to build upon what you learned in the Animation Fundamentals Series.
The Flex Rig has been released as Creative Commons Atrribution (CC-by), available for free download, and allowing you to share it and work you do with it freely.
