A new update to Limber for After Effects lets users rig posed artwork.

There are quite a few tools centered around rigging characters in After Effects. While they all ranged from the powerful and free (DUIK) to the premium and simplified, Limber was always a popular choice that offered simplicity at a price.

Previous versions of the rigging tool limited users to working with predefined artwork. With the latest version, you can rig custom artwork, but keep the simplicity that people are accustomed to using the tool.

Rig Your Designs With Limber.

The latest release for the After Effects IK tool lets users easily rig “posed” artwork. Limber keeps a simple, non-technical paradigm to make rigging super-easy. Now you can rig custom artwork as limbs with a couple of clicks.

There’s also a unique new method of ‘posing’ limbs based on three colored circles, making for a hugely time-saving workflow from Adobe Illustrator. You can even turn any path of three points into an IK ‘Bone’ with a click of a button. Default limbs are also now fully compatible with Bodymovin and Lottie.
