Head Rig Anatomy

Head Controller

Controls the head turn animation.

Head Null

Moves the entire Head Rig.

How It Works

1. Create Head Null

Create a Head Null, and parent all head rig layers to it.

2. Animate Left/Right

Animate a left/right head turn, then select your left/right properties & set them as your left/right keyframes.

3. Animate Up/Down

Animate an up/down head turn using different properties than your left/right head turn, then select your up/down properties & set them as your up/down keyframes.

Optional - Create Up/Down Null

Parent selected layers to a null that you can use to animate their up/down. For example, if you animated a layer's position left/right, parent it to a null and animate the null's position for the up/down.

4. Create Head Controller

Create an Head Controller, set it's boundaries, and rig it! Done!


Animate the shape of keyframed motion paths for extra faux-3D precision

Swap out entire head rigs in a click. Even if they're animated.

Plus many more tools...
