FAQ for Hiring Character Rigging and Animation Designers

Cad Crowd has a community of skilled character rigging and animation freelancers. We'll connect you with a freelancer to help with rigging and animation, 3D or otherwise. As one of the leading character rigging and animation companies, our designers are pre-qualified and backed by a guarantee that the services rendered are accurate to your project specifications.

Our goal is to provide you with a freelancer minus the hassle of recruitment. We will connect you directly with a top-ranking professional rigger and animator and take the guesswork out of hiring online. 

Character rigging is a process of creating a skeleton for an animation or 3D model so it can move. Without it, a character model will not be able to move around or be deformed, according to the needs of a project. With it, a character or object can have a fluid movement that is vital to a dynamic gameplay or a movie-watching experience. 

Think of rigging and animation as the strings that ensure a character has the right facial expression, walks as expected, and carries a rifle visually and emotionally. This requires artistic talents and technical skills that only highly qualified and experienced character rigging and animation freelancers can provide. 

Taking advantage of the services they offer will help ensure that you will meet and exceed project requirements. We work with you to provide the skills and services you need to achieve your goals on time and within the budget. 

Our character riggers will design the skeletal framework of an object, creature, or person and then add position joints and points of movement. Joints work the same way as that of a human joint, allowing an animator to rotate an arm or limb in a realistic way. 

Driven keys, on the other hand, are used by riggers to speed up the animation process using two parts - the driver and driven. The former is the control that is used to move the latter. It's the button with a corresponding hand movement, for example. 

Combined with other features in character rigging and animation software, a freelancer can tell a story with just the way a character moves. Yes, even moving a character's eyebrow heavily relies on rigging. 

If you are in the business of animation, Cad Crowd is one of the character rigging and animation firms that you can rely on to provide you the skills and tools to achieve your project goals. A talented rigger and animator will work with you to provide the services you need to meet your project needs and ensure that your product will outperform the competition.   

Our freelancers will work with you through the entire design process from the initial analysis to schematics up to design review and delivery of files. Character rigging and animation services include designing of a skeletal framework, building virtual characters skeletons, building control rigs, applying skins, setting of deformable weighting, and creating facial shapes. They can also assist in streamlining pipelines in art production and provide solutions to ensure a smooth workflow and that the animation team can keep up with any and all changes.  

The Cad Crowd community consists of thousands of design professionals from all over the world. Tell us all about your project and we will connect you with the most suitable rigger and animator following a thorough evaluation. Contact us for your free estimate today
