Whoa, that came out of nowhere… Really cool! I’ve tried out Duik before and some of its tools are a part of my AE workflow.

But… what does Duik coming to Blender mean exactly, I wonder? Because, unlike AE that has no rigging capabilities (and that’s primarily what Duik seeked to remedy), Blender already has a rigging system in place… so I’m curious what Duik is aiming to do.

I gather from the hash tags that maybe the focus will be in streamlining creating cutout rigs (like COA Tools?) with maybe stuff like the automated walk cycle generator. But knowing what Duik is in After Effects, it might also mean misc. ingenious tools that’ll make rigging/animating in Blender easier. Whatever the case, this is exciting!

Ha, nice, looks like I was pretty much on point with my guesses. With Animation 2020 coming up, it would be cool if some of his efforts could be absorbed into the main Blender build (as I’m pretty sure he’ll come up with pretty useful tools). If nothing else, I could see him developing an add-on that’ll become a standard one bundled with the default Blender.

Hi guys, some news on duduf addons for blender here :

I know this is not totally duik related, but they are working on it right now !
Meanwhile, there is a render preset addon and playblaster addon available on their page !
