In this course, I teach how to use the IK rigging plugin DUIK for After Effects. This powerful plugin allows you to animate characters using IK functionality quickly and easily. I created all the background assets to go along with the character design done by Alex Hernandez. He also created a course detailing the steps to his character design.

Throughout the course I cover:

  • Setting up and rigging the character both manually and automatically
  • Tips for creating a walk cycle
  • Different methods for adding background elements
  • Looping your animations
  • Transitioning from one type of animation to another while using the looping expression

By the end of this course, learners know how to manually rig a character as well as use the automatic functions for less complex characters.
