BlenRig 5 is an Auto-Rigging and Skinning system for Blender. The project started back in 2007 and has had several public releases since then. One of the main objectives of BlenRig is to give the users the possibility to rig their own characters obtaining high quality results, no matter what level of expertise they may have.
With a predefined body deformation system and an advanced facial rig, BlenRig 5 is able to deliver production level characters.
Used in Feature films, Blender Open movies and short films, BlenRig 5 is finally open to the world!
BlenRig development is constantly on going, so you can check for updates in the blog.
