Animation controllers?

So, I saw this video and now I want to know if there’s a tutorial somewhere that explains how to setup that kind of controllers.
So far I’ve been animating everything manually in the good old fashioned way and this would definitely improve my workflow.


This is called rigging. There are thousands of tuts, not all good. May I suggest starting off with the mancandy tut.

This is my favorite tutorial for learning the basics:
The rig is very basic, but it gives you a good idea of how to rig a character. From there, I;ve went on the learn more advance rigging techniques.


Thank you all!
