Where To Start

Rigging is a process of creating controllers and attaching them to joints.

Before you can start rigging your character:

1. Import your model to the scene by selecting File → Import Fbx/Dae → Add model or File → Import Fbx/Dae → Scene.
Note: At the moment, Cascadeur does not have functions for creating skinned meshes. You need to prepare them in another software.

2. Switch to the Rigging Mode:

3. Now you should decide what tool you want to use to rig your character

  • If you have a humanoid character, you can use Quick Rigging Tool to create a standard rig for it
  • If you want more control over the process of rigging, use regular Rigging Tool
