Ever need a shot of a character on horseback for your 3D animated short film? Maybe a mutant-feline charging at some hapless safari explorer? Well, it’s entirely possible now, even if you’ve never animated a 3d quadruped in your life!
Rigify Animbox is a Blender animation add-on by Valangdance that offers a range of incredibly useful features for rigging and animating, one of which is Rigify Zoo, which allows us to generate pre-animated quadrupeds that come with base meshes. We can use these base meshes to create our quadrupeds, or even as a simple reference for proportions to help us align our models to the rig.
