Want to add some extra life & emotion to your creations in Adobe Character Animator CC? Check out these 10 advanced rigging tips, from using invisible eyeballs for more constrained eye movement to hooking up multiple parts to a MIDI-controlled dial. Hopefully there are at least a couple of ideas here to help take your puppets to the next level.
The character featured here, Almasol, is available for free at http://okaysamurai.com/puppets/.
Correction: In the shadows section, you need to tag both Head groups (normal and shadow) as Frontal for it to work properly – not just the shadow group as shown in the video. Sorry about that.
