Atlas-ing? & Start up instructions
First, you have an excellent speaking voice and great cadence in speech, easy to follow and nice to listen to, thank you for making this very clear. I'm new to CG Cookie as my animation professor suggested it as an alternative to regular face-to-face tutors as we don't have any for animation in my college.
Question 1: You mentioned that Ken(t?) had atlas'd the objects and that this was important so that when they're combined they don't break the materials. What is atlas-ing?
Question 2: As a super newb animation student, it took me a few minutes to figure out what file you opened for the start. You might want to say, "First open the 'start rig' in Blender." and maybe mention what version(s) of Blender the rig and contents will work with.
Thank you so much,
