  1. Hi. I fixed the broken link past some hours. Please refresh shift+F5 your browser, and make sure to disable your adblock. I confirm it´s working on my end. It was broken past some hours, but I fixed around 4 hours ago.
    Thanks for reviewing the tutorial. I hope you do a great animation with it (research study).
