Animate your 3D character
Definition of Rigging: adding digital controls to animate a 3D model.
It is a long process and the animations are very complex since you have to move each of the controls correctly to give the desired movement sensation. This process is done usually in the same system you are modelling your Character in 3D, for example in Blender a specialist put “bones” added to the 3D model and move them (rigging). Taking into account the target group of this project (students 12-14 years old) and the short time of classes, it is very interesting to use software such as MIXAMO, which allows adding different animations to a model. These animations are downloaded and can be used in our projects, both AR and VR.
This tutorial explains how to use MIXAMO.
