Often times I am asked if I can quickly set up a space switch for some of our animators and from now on I will try to reference them to this video instead. With this workflow your rigger can update the rig as much as he likes and you wont be affected in your anim file. Its a simple workflow that any animator can benefit from knowing. Do not be scared because its called rigging! Its a light topic we go for in this video!
If you are working towards becoming a super animator its important to know just the minimums of rigging. It will give you a deeper understanding of what is going on and what is doable with the rig you are working with. So learning a little bit of rigging will only make you better!
