“Limber is the most intuitive rigging system I’ve used, which was a big help in making the character animation process less daunting to me.” - Ben Marriott
Simple yet powerful
Limber’s animation features are the perfect combo of simplicity and sophistication:
• Stretchiness (or non-stretchiness)
• Easy foreshortening
• Anti-pop to smooth out tricky walk cycles
• Keyframe-able auto-rotation for hands and feet
• Infinte scaling
Built for your style
Your character tool shouldn’t limit you to a single style. Limber works with:
• Any vector artwork. Use the revolutionary Rig & Pose button and embed the contents of your shape layers inside a limb.
• Simple, bendy paths. We call them Bones. Change the color, width and tapering just like any other stroke.
• Tapers - The classic Limber look with all the built-in controls for sizes, colors and rounding.
• The Limb Library - a bundled range of limbs with alternative uses and style capabilities.
RIGGING IN 1-2-3
Select three circle layers and two art layers. Set the dropdown to Three Circles, click the Rig & Pose button and 💥 - it’s all embedded in a limb with perfectly rotating joints.
There’s no need to design characters in stiff poses, move anchor points or parent lots of layers.
Watch this to learn more about using your own artwork in limbs.
Any limb can be easily duplicated or copied and pasted to another.
Don't rig. Draw
Draw a three-point path with your pen tool, click the Path to Bone button, and it’s ready to animate.
It’s so simple you’ll be wondering why it wasn’t always this easy. It even works with paths imported from Illustrator
You can also use this method to draw how you want a limb to be, and then apply a different style or rig artwork to it.
