Review: Humane Rigging


Terry Wallwork reviews Nathan Vegdahl's 'Humane Rigging' DVD.

Another month and it's time to do another Blender Foundation Open Movie Workshop training DVD release review.

The Blender Foundation Open Movie Workshop training DVD are high quality training DVD's covering all aspects of production and training in relation to Blender 3D. They are the nearest thing to official/gold standard training that the Blender Community currently has access to, as they tend to be created by the people that created Blender. Each DVD is released under Creative Commons Licensing. The sale of the training DVD helps support the Blender Foundation and helps in improving Blender.

This time the DVD released is "Humane Rigging" created by Nathan Vegdahl, the irrepressible guy who has worked on many of the Blender Foundation's Open Movie Projects and has produced many different training products.

For those who don't already know Nathan is an extremely talented Blender user who specializes in all things rigging. Which means that he is the ideal person to be producing this training DVD, as it covers rigging in Blender.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. I pre-ordered this DVD the moment I saw the trailer 'starring' Nathan and Ian. I have to say, this DVD covers rigging theory in great depth. Even if you are using any software other than blender, this DVD will certainly explain a lot of universal rigging concepts. A must have for any character artist!

    • Not to my knowledge, but you could just make a donation to the blender foundation and watch it on youtube if you prefer it as a digital download. Of course you don't get the .blend files that way.
