Rigs allow your 3D models to bend and twist. In this video, learn how to easily create a rig in Blender.
- [Instructor] Before we can begin animating our creature, … we need to attach a rig to it or an armature, … it's really one and the same name. … You can think of a rig or armature … as the series of bones or joints … that fit inside of the creature … and allow it to move. … They're going to be manipulating the faces and vertices … and giving this illusion that the creature's actually alive. … The first thing we need to do though, … is scale everything correctly. … In this file, I've gone ahead and just copied … and pasted the fish in a fish bowl … and all of it into one scene. … If you'd like to copy and paste objects yourself, … you can just come up to object, … make sure you have something selected … and then just copy it and paste it … into different blender files. … Right away, you can see one big issue. … Our fish is not going to fit in to this fish tank. … Now it's true you could just rig the fish as it is … and scale the rig. … But I always like to encourage to get things right …
