Tutorial 194: Simple Rig

Severo Ojea | Sep 27, 2019

Rigs are not only for 3D characters. They can be used in a multitude of situations—from simplifying animation to automating repetitive tasks. Rigs make animating objects easier. Rather than dealing with a ton of keyframes, or complex elements, you can break complex motions down to a single control. It also makes it so that there's less potential for error. So we're going to create a text-based rig so that we can quickly and easily animate text on and change each letter out individually.
