Thoroughly enjoying both the content and presentation style of your Humane Rigging videos. Excellent.

I'd been manually creating 2D puppets in After Effects for the last 2 years and am new to Blender and this tutorial series is exactly what I've needed. I appreciate it so much that I've manually purchased the series and can't thank you enough for connecting so many dots and covering fundamentals like this.

Hi, by default in blender 2.79 just under the "Script Expression" selectbox, I had this error "ERROR: Python auto-execution disabled", which can be solved by going in the User preferences in the "File" tab, and ticking the checkbox "Auto run Python scripts"...

Hello anyone! I'm enjoying this very much. But I wonder, why does the main bone rotate the ball? Isn't that what the spin controller is for?

Your tutorial is very good BUT we are now in Blender 2.9, lot of UI change and commands not at the same places. Too old (september 2020)

@alan15 There have been some UI changes but I've found with a little googling you can make it through this tutorial.
