I am in between projects and will be soon starting to experiment with Blender 2.8. I have used BlenRig 5 with Blender 2.78 and have appreciated its power. I suspect, though, since the layering system is completely different for Blender 2.8, that the current public download for BlenRig is not compatible. I am wondering a few things about how to go about rigging and skinning for Blender 2.8:
- Is BlenRig 5 incompatible with Blender 2.8? (I assume it is, but I want to confirm.)
- Assuming BlenRig 5 is incompatible with Blender 2.8, is there any word if BlenRig will be updated to work with it? If so, when is that expected to happen?
- If BlenRig is not an option with Blender 2.8 for the foreseeable future, what other rigging and skinning options do I have? Ideally, I’d like to use a feature film quality rig with a facial system. Automatic skinning (as BlenRig can do) is a terrific feature as well.
