Chapter 1: Developing Your Eye

Learning to animate is learning to see.

    Wayne, I like how Rivet’s rig is set up. I’m starting to reverse engineer it. To give me a head start, do you have any notes on how it is set up?

      Rigging is a super complicated thing.
      I don’t have any notes on how they are set up because it was custom built to solve the particular problems the character design threw at me.

      I can give you a few words of advice when reverse engineering (which is how I learnt).
      Just focus on one area at a time.
      Try to make it as simple as possible but no simpler.
      And try a bunch of different things with constraints in different orders.
      And stay consistent with your naming convention.

      It’s a matter of learning small parts at a time and then putting them together.
      Good luck man, rigging can melt your brain but it’s very rewarding.
