6 Ways to rig a character in synfig


#1

Hi!

6 Ways to rig characters in Synfig (rc3).
Not included in this list are the old way where you copy and link rotation layers and the stickman-method from the plugin.

  1. Group transformation widget rigging with automatic joints. (vector)
  2. Bone rigging with automatic joints. (vector)
  3. Group transformation widget rigging with normal fixed joints. (vector/pixel)
  4. Bone rigging with normal fixed joints. (vector/pixel)
  5. Bone destortion rigging. (pixel)
  6. Bone vertex rigging. (vector)

Each method has its own pro and cons.
Bones and pivot points of the examples can be found in sets.

thanks a lot :smiley:


#3

I would like that these examples were included in the examples folder of the source code.
Could you please organize them and include in a folder under examples from the source code and file up a pull request?
That would be awesome.

The fifth one is empty after I load the file.

btw, is there anyway to remove a bone currently?


#5

That’s my bad. I uploaded a sifz file first that did not contain the png. Fixed it and uploaded sfg file instead. Should work now.

Removing bones is currently bugged and causes the program to crash.
