Armatures in Blender 2.5 - A Crash Course


The CG Masters have just released a great tutorial on the basics of blender armatures. If you are new to animation or need to run over the some of the fundamental concepts, watch this!

CG Masters writes:

In this tutorial we go through a rapid fire, crash course overview, of Blender's armature system, the bones they are comprised of and all the little tricks and buttons avaiable when making a skeleton rig for your character.

For more great tutorials and information head over the CG Masters Website!


  1. Great video. Wasn't slow and I learned a thing or two. I'd like to see more crash courses like this. It's probably useless for the newbie but as a seasoned user its good to be able to get the information quickly and succinctly rather than sitting through 40min where I learn how to navigate the viewport for the 100th time.

  2. When will there be a .b3d export script created for 2.5? I would love to start using B2.5 but I need to be able to export in b3d and only 2.49 has the addon? Also Will 2.5 be backward compatible? will I ever be able to open 2.49 files into 2.5?


  3. I've been using Blender for years but always dread using armatures! For anyone who wants to understand those weird Euler XYZ combinations and quaternions, take a look at Blenderart magazine issue 31, where a Clever Person explains it all...
